When embarking on a new exercise regime it is important recognise what your goals are and how you will attain them (remember our SMART goals). Decide what type of exercise is best for you, and make sure that whatever regime you adopt you work within your limits.
Don’t embark on a new workout regime if you are injured or have a medical condition that will be exasperated by your chosen workout. If you are unsure about whether a workout regime is suitable for you or not please speak to your GP and/or fitness professional.
There are so many exercises out there that you can try.
If you are a novice, it may be helpful to begin with a single activity for a set amount of time a few times a week. For example you may choose to do a brisk walk for 20- 60 minutes 3 times a week. With time this may be built up to a light jog… This will improve endurance muscular strength and has other associated health benefits!
As your fitness levels increase you may choose to do a full body workout or split programmes:
Here are some exercises that I enjoy:
Low plank and high plank switches (30 seconds)
Leg balances, pulses and kicks (20 seconds each)
Press ups and floor sprints ( 5 each)
Punch knee twists (30 each side) – work those oblique’s!
Crab or bridge as part of your stretches (hold for 30 seconds if you can- don’t worry if you can’t as time goes on you will get stronger in your stretch)
Only stretch when your muscles are warm to prevent injury and cool down after every workout.
Remember your nutritional intake should match your energy expenditure!
Personal Training slots are still available (location dependent).
