The group that exercised for 1/2 an hour lost more weight than the 1 hour exercise group after 3 months. This has a huge implication for me as I used to believe that more is better and I needed to exercise at least an hour to get results.
Arming with this knowledge, I went to the gym today looking to sign up but I wanted a good deal. Months ago when I visited, I was told of a 3 year deal, pay all at once which brought down the monthly cost considerably. Alas, no such luck today, but I gathered that this is the prime season for them as people are going to come in drove to sign up for their New Year resolutions. I will wait 3 months for the New Year resolution crowd to die down and I'll visit them again to see if they have any deals.
Meanwhile, I learned that I don't need their one hour group ex classes. My job is a lot easier knowing that I can get good results with 1/2 hour of exercise. I can start with as little as 5 minutes and build up to 10-20 minutes. That's all I need as I don't sit all day long anyway.
