Seven Simple Steps to Get Into a Fitness Routine

by Renee Kennedy

  1. See Your Doctor: Before you start any exercise program or begin any sport or hobby that involves physical exertion, get a check up.

  2. Sleep: Get enough sleep every night. This is especially important if you decide to exercise in the morning. If you aren't getting enough sleep, you might just keep hitting the snooze button in favor of getting up and exercising.

  3. Set Goals: What are you trying to achieve out of your exercise program? Just like when you are trying to lose weight, you must set a goal weight, the same thing applies to fitness. Do you need to work on your abs or your thighs or maybe your doctor is recommending a cardio workout? You need to figure out what it is that you want to accomplish and set out to find exercises that will help you reach your goals.

  4. Select: Find exercises that you like. This is very important, if you choose exercises that bore you to tears... well, how long do you think you will be able to do it? (This has always been my problem with tummy crunches and video tapes... they are so darn boring... I've found that a daily walk will keep me relatively fit and it's not boring to me at all.)

  5. Schedule: Set aside 30 minutes, 3 times a week for exercise.

  6. Slow and Steady wins the race: Don't try to do every exercise you know on the first day, too much too fast and you will crack under the pressure. Start slowly and build up to an exercise routine that fits your lifestyle.

  7. Stick to it: NOTHING is more important than your health!
