Choosing The Right Exercise For You
what you like to do. What you hate doing, paying
membership fees, and whether or not to buy equipment
are all things you need to consider as well as
If you choose something that you don't like to do,
you aren't going to keep doing it for a long period
of time. Give it some thought - if you don't like
jogging, you aren't going to get up at 6 AM and go
running. If you can't find something you like to
do, choose something you hate the least, which will
normally be walking.
Walking is great exercise, as it suits all levels
of fitness. Anyone can start a walking program at
any time, it's normally the intensity and duration
that differs. Walking is also a social exercise,
as it isn't difficult to find a training partner
to chat with while you exercise. Walking with a
partner will also make time go by faster.
No matter what exercise you choose, you should
start at a low level of intensity and build it up
over a period of weeks, which is essential to the
longevity of your exercise program. If you start
off too hard, you could end up with an injury
which will require time off to get over.
If you are really in bad shape, you should start
off by walking for 10 minutes each day. Then,
increase it by 5 minutes every 2 weeks. To make
things more interesting, you should try walking
a different course every few days. You can also
roster a different friend to walk with you each
day of the week.
If walking isn't your thing, then you may want
to try a fitness center. They have loads of
variety and normally have trainers on hand to
answer any questions you may have. When you
choose a fitness center, make sure that they give
If they aren't willing to treat you well before
you join, then they certainly won't after you
join. You should also make sure that the equipment
they use is well taken care of. It's easy to
find out, as all you have to do is listen to the
machines. If they squeak a lot or make noise,
then chances are they aren't being taken care of.
If you still aren't sure what you should do, then
you should look into golf or tennis. Both are
good social activities in most areas, and you can
even meet new friends. Tennis is great for fitness
although it isn't for someone who is just starting
out. If you haven't exercised in a long time,
then golf may be the best activity for you.
