A lot of people think just because you are small, you do not have a reason to exercise. Lets face the facts, living a healthy life has nothing to do with how heavy you are, or how light you are. We all need to live a healthy life.
I do Tae Bo, the Advanced routine that was developed by Billy Blanks, and I do this one-hour routine 3 days a week, giving my body a day's rest in between the routines. If you are looking for a routine to follow even in the comfort of your home, you can buy a Billy Blanks Tae Bo DVD and you will love it.
