Start A Fitness Program

Start A Fitness Program

It is never too late to start an exercise program. Whether you are 18 or 98, exercise is good for everyone, it is one of the few things that increases your life expectancy.

START EASY - Start walking. I recommend 10 minutes per day for beginners. Gradually increase your walking until you are walking 45-60 minutes per day. Walk briskly if you can, but any movement helps.

INCREASE GRADUALLY - Once you have increased your walking to at least 45 minutes per day, add a simple weight training program 3 days per week.

FIND AN EXERCISE AND NUTRITION PROGRAM - There are many programs, such as fit for life. You can look them up on the internet and follow their nutritional and fitness programs for free. Magazines such as Muscle and Fitness also have free nutritional and fitness programs.

PROPER NUTRITION - Good nutrition is essential. Stock up on fruits and veggies, whole grains and fish. Whey protein can be used to give your body the extra protein needed when you are exercising your muscles.

Get motivated and start your own fitness program today.
