Start by Setting a Benchmark

When you start, test you current fitness level with a few simple measurements. These can be used to track your progress and stay motivated later on. Great areas to record when you are first starting are:

  • How long it takes to run a mile plus your heart rate before and after
  • How many pushups can you do in a minute
  • How far down can you reach sitting on the floor with your legs fully extended
  • Your waist circumference
  • Your body mass index

Make a Fitness Plan

You fitness plan will be designed to keep you excited and on track to work out if you follow these simple rules:

  • Choose exercises with your goal in mind. If you are looking for weight loss, mix cardio and weight training. If you want endurance, spend some time on the treadmill or a stationary bike. For increased flexibility, join an amazing yoga class.
  • Mix up your routine. Focusing on your goal is great, but be sure to incorporate numerous activities in your fitness plan to prevent workout burnout and keep your body even and healthy.
  • Start slow and work up. Getting pumped to go in a rock a workout is a great mindset to always have, but always start easy and warm up to a more challenging workout, especially if you are just beginning.
  • Make your exercise time a daily routine. Schedule your time to go to the gym like any other appointment. This is a great method to keep you on track.
  • Keep records of your exercise. Writing down your results can let you see your progress. Organize your benchmark test, workout days, and fitness plan in a binder that allows you to easily update and see your results!
