I walk at least 30 minutes a day and do yoga and pilates on a semi-regular basis. What do you suggest that I add to my routine?

Your routine might be fine just as it is. What is your fitness goal? If you don’t have a fitness goal then anything you do will work since any road will get you there. What you are currently doing is a low level but beneficial routine. If you want to burn more calories, or lose weight this routine is probably not adequate. You will need to add more intensive cardio training like cycling or running or a high energy fitness class at least 2 days a week. If you want to build lean muscle, this routine isn’t adequate. You will need to add some weightlifting to your routine. It’s likely you will want to do upper and lower body lifting to strengthen and tone. This involves moderate weight and numerous reps (12 – 15 per set) probably one or two days a week.

Set a fitness goal and write me back.
