5 Fit Tips for Beginners

Featured Image for 5 Fit Tips for Beginners

New to exercise?  Here are some tips to help get you started:

  1. START LOW & SLOW.  Begin working out 2 days a week, using light weights.  Gradually work up to exercising several days a week.
  2. STRETCH.  After your muscles are warm, holding stretches can increase flexibility and help prevent injuries.
  3. MIX IT UP.  For best results, your body needs cardio, strength training, flexibility AND balance training.  Overwhelmed?  Try a class that incorporates them all!
  4. ASK FOR HELP.  Not sure how much weight to lift, or how to use a certain machine?  Ask!  Your trainers are here to help you!
  5. KNOW WHEN TO TAKE A BREAK. If you’re feeling extremely sore, or becoming sick, you might need to skip the gym.  Click here for more information.
