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, 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.

It depends on the day mon & fri I get 40 minutes, tue/wed best I can do is 20 minutes. Thur at least 20 I aim for 40. Sat and sun...so far tend to be my off days. Hoping to add some exercise into them in the future.
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.

some times I do get 30 minutes done but most of the time it goes between 15 to 20 minute
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.
