AEROBIC FITNESS

 

Here's a revolutionary new way to work out whether you're getting enough aerobic physical activity each week using the aerabyte concept.

 

Aerabytes - where time meets effort -

 

Until now there hasn't been a good aerobic fitness prescription. Any prescription worth its salt has a dosage and rec0ommendations about how often it should be taken.

 

This is what the Aerabyte concept is all about - an exercise prescription..

 

If you're serious about becoming aerobically fitter, merely recording time, steps or distance is useful, but not sufficient. You've also got to include effort into the aerobic fitness equation.

Use the Aerabyte Fitness Tracka Diary to record your scores.

Keep track of the number of aerabytes you do per session, per day, per week and per month. Over the weeks and months, you'll have objective evidence of whether or not your training program is working. (You can then go to your health insurer and demand that you be charged a lower premium!)

 

Aim for a minimum of 600 aerabytes a week. 800 is better and 1000 is best. You'll keep yourself in exceptionally good shape on 1000 aerabytes per week.
