"So you're like a gym...to work out in?"
minimum amount of recommended physical activity is "2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (ie brisk walking) every week and muscle strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms)." Most importantly is to choose something that you'll actually do often enough for it to make a difference. I used to be into mixed martial arts, then power lifting (yup, that's me in the photos), then just working out in a gym...then nothing for a really long time...and now I'm back to working out by taking 4-5 classes a week at Lithe Method (anyone who knows me well will laugh that I somehow managed to talk about Lithe Method on a sculpture blog...let's just say I am a big fan...) Whatever it is that you decide is your workout of choice, the important thing is that you are doing something to keep yourself healthy and strong and to help protect against possible injuries.
