Hey Carina,

So to qualify myself, I'm a personal trainer, just so you know I'm not making stuff up. :P

The evidence suggests that exercise is great for people with Crohn's. Just not super intense exercise. I personally lift about 6 days a week, love it.

I made a short video here about the basics of exercise with Crohn's if you'd like to check that out!

For me exercise was completely key to getting better. And i know that if I stop exercising, the whole thing will start up again. I try to do at least an hour most days. Take one or two days off a week where i just cycle and do yoga. Otherwise its full-on tennis or HIIT sessions.

I like to do pilates or yoga a couple of days a week and then add a day or two of a cardio workout like Zumba. If I over do it I am exhausted for a couple of days after so I don't do cardio more than a couple of days a week.
