Fitness and wellness expert advises on weight loss

Speaking to Briefly News, Bonge Gumede advised that there are various ways one can go about when losing weight.

"For weight loss, aiming for around 300 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per week, coupled with strength training sessions, is often recommended. For muscle-building goals, focusing on resistance training sessions targeting major muscle groups 2-4 times per week, with each session lasting approximately 45-60 minutes, is common."

She also shared that time frames of witnessing weight loss differ, and one should focus on their goal.

"The amount of time one should spend exercising to reach a specific goal varies depending on factors such as the individual’s current fitness level, the intensity of the workouts, and the nature of the goal itself (e.g., weight loss, muscle gain, overall fitness improvement). It’s essential to listen to your body, gradually increase exercise duration and intensity, and seek guidance from a fitness professional if needed to create a safe and effective workout plan."
