NEW TO EXERCISE?

by karen

Welcome to the NEW decade and we are glad that you have joined us.

Many of us will be thinking of our health, what the new year will bring and making new goals.

We don't fully agree with NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS as they are usually very short lived but goal setting can be very healthy and motivational.

Health IS a long term goal, we should all be striving for an excellent quality of life and setting goals can help us to focus on what needs to be done.

So if you are returning to exercise after a long break or are new to exercise there are a few steps that you need to take because we want you to return safely as let's face it, you need to be in this for the long run.

So here's our Beginners Check List

  1. See your Doc - this will give you a health baseline - once you see the benefits its easier keep going - once you've got their OK, you are good to go.
  2. Start Gently - Don't try and do a 5k, 10k or dead lift the weights bar. - It's a sure way to injure yourself.
  3. Listen to your body - Just because the person next to you is working out like a mad person. Doesn't mean it's right for you.
  4. Make a favourite music playlist - Listening to your favourite motivational music is known to be a mood lifter and really helps.
  5. Drink plenty of water - before, during AND after exercise.
  6. Nutrition - This is HUGE if you want results.
  7. MOVE - Try to move 5/6 days a week - add the odd exercise into your day
  8. PUMPING - The heart needs to get pumping and you need to get a sweat on.

We would love to hear how you get on.
