Of course if you want to really increase your fitness then you will need to do more than a casual bit of exercise. You will need to be more methodical in your approach to exercise and do more than one type of exercise. You will need to be doing some cardiovascular exercise and some basic strength exercises.
For your cardiovascular exercise - which is basically any type of exercise that increases your heart rate by considerable amounts - you should work on being able to exercise for a longer period of time than you could before. This will enable you to build up some stamina.
Strength training will tone your body and increase your strength. While it won't necessarily make you fitter, it will make you look and feel better and give you visible, confidence-building results.
This strength training does not necessarily mean lifting weights or hanging around a gym, you can do a really effective strength training workout in comfort of your own home with little or no equipment. A small amount of training like this can make all differnce in your fitness program.
Regardless of your weight, you can be at a suitable fitness level just by adding a suitable amount and type of exercise to your daily life.
