Ms Haritha Shyam, Nutritionist, Exercise Program, Apollo Hospital
An Exercise Program is a structured plan for physical activity that is designed to help individuals improve their fitness, health, and well-being. It typically includes a variety of exercises that target different aspects of physical fitness, such as cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and balance.

An effective exercise program should be tailored to meet the individual's goals, fitness level, and any physical limitations or medical conditions. For example, someone who is trying to improve their cardiovascular fitness might focus on aerobic exercises such as running, cycling, or swimming, while someone who is looking to build strength might focus on resistance training exercises such as weightlifting or bodyweight exercises.

In general, a well-rounded exercise program should include a combination of cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and flexibility exercises. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have any medical conditions or physical limitations. A healthcare provider can help you determine what types of exercise are safe and appropriate for you and can provide guidance on how to progress and modify your program as needed.
