Recently, we have been approached by a few people who have expressed an interest in getting back into exercising, but are scared to make the plunge. We feel you, girl. We have all been there, and now we are here to say “We’ve got your back!” While there are countless tips on how to get back into your groove, we narrowed it down to our favorite 7 exercise tips for beginners.
Find your workout style
Get comfortable workout gear
There is nothing worse than working out and feeling uncomfortable. Maybe you don’t have the right shoes, your pants are too tight or too loose, your shirt keeps riding up, etc.
You have heard us say it time and time again… finding a buddy is motivating in itself. It is much harder to bail on your workout when you have someone holding you accountable.
Whether you are taking a group fitness class, or hitting the gym solo, find a coach or trainer and ask questions. That is what they are there for – free advice is everywhere, you just need to ask the questions.
Set a goal
What do you want out of your workout? To lose weight, gain weight, build muscle, get fit, be healthy, feel better?
Do it NOW
Don’t wait for “Monday” because “Monday” might never come. If you have an excuse today, you will likely find another excuse when the time comes.
Rest and repeat
It is important for you and your body to rest after a tough workout. Listen to your body and take the rest it deserves, and then get up and do it again.
