No - but I average 300+ min of exercise most weeks (cardio & ST).

Yes, at least 6 out of 7 days unless I'm sick or injured. I walk briskly to and from work, so that's a minimum of 30 minutes, usually six days a week. On top of that activity, I usually do moderate to intense cardio 2 out of 3 days (usually ranging from 25 minutes to 60 minutes, a full strength training session at least twice per week, and core strength work almost every day.

Because I'm training for some endurance races, I do try to take at least one full day off from exercise per week, and so sometimes I do nothing on that 7th day - although often I'll incorporate some easy walking and core strength work.

Yes, outside of illness and injury. Vacation/travel does not interfere with excercise, but it does change what, and where, I do it.

Yes, at least 6 days a week. I will switch up the routine sometimes. Strength training is every other day, but most days I walk and do modified wall pushups and stomach crunches.

I do something active almost every day, but cardio/weights is more like 5 days per week for 45-90 minutes. The other days I usually end up gardening or riding my horse or something like that that isn't specifically for exercise.

Normally, yes. However, as I have been quite ill and not normal for over four months, I have missed an exceptional amount of exercise as I had not energy for it. Finally, at the three month point, I was able to begin adding walking and stretching back into a program. Then I added Yoga and Pilates back into the mix. Still waiting for full healing to get jogging and strength training back to the daily routine.

30 minutes a day works out to 3.5 hours a week, and I get that. 3 days a week I work out for 30 minutes and 2 days a week I do a 60 minute class. I need 2 days off from formal exercise per week.

i usually do 20-30 minutes of cardio, ab work and yoga for a total of 60 minutes, alternating strength training 3 times a week. sometimes i will do over 60 minutes on weekdays.

I do at least an hour every day, and at weekends and a couple of days during the week where I have more time, I tend to do anything from an hour on an hour and a quarter.

I always get my cardio in, and also on alternate days do full body strength training.

I am a morning exerciser and always feel fired up and ready for my day when I've done my workout.

I do . I use the fitness videos, at least once a day, I do my stationary bike at least 10-20 minutes daily and I try to do a 1 mile walk. I also do different types of exercise to change my routine.
