Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference
If you aren’t accustomed to regular exercise, you may want to start out by just walking for about 20 minutes per day, 4 or 5 days per week, and then gradually increase your program to 1 hour per day, 6 or 7 days per week. All you need to do is get moving to experience the benefits of exercise.
Eventually, you may want to add variety to your workouts by alternating between walking and another form of aerobic activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or rowing. Choosing activities you enjoy will increase your chances of sticking with your fitness plan for the long haul. Of course weightlifting is great for many reasons!
Need some motivation? Try setting some goals, such as walking half a mile or doing eight push-ups. Start with small goals and gradually strive for more. You can keep track of your fitness goals and your progress with this printable worksheet.
