For many people even the thought of exercising is exhausting, but there are many ways to get exercise, not all of which are too scary. Exercising is just about getting physical activity worked into your life, so its not just about going to the gym and working out until you drop. Most of the time you can actually find what you need in the little things.
Exercising is great because you can lose weight, but that is not the most significant impact that it can have on your health. For good heart health the American Heart Association suggests that you get 30 minutes of activity on most days. This activity only needs to be moderate, like walking, doing your chores around the house, gardening dancing and so on. You can really find those 30 minutes of moderate exercise anywhere.
Before you begin your exercise quest you need to figure out how fit you are currently so you know what you can and cannot do initially in your exercises. If you have medical issues that are holding you back, then you need to go and see a doctor. In general, if you are doing the right kind of exercise for your level and your task, then it is unusual for you to make your condition worse.
Before you start your workout you need to warm yourself up. Get your muscles loose and your heart rate slightly increased to prepare your body for the work that it is about to do. Figure out which combination of exercises you want to do (cardiovascular, strength and conditioning or flexibility and movement) and take if from there. Always remember to cool down after a workout.
