  • The right amount of and kind of exercise for one person might be too much or little for another

NB. If you have been inactive, or have a health condition, consult your doctor prior to embarking on an exercise program.

Start slowly, if you have been sedentary (inactive) and are have any health conditions. Be kind to your bod and build up your fitness slowly. Starting with a lot of enthusiasm and working out too hard in the beginning can result in injury and pain, and may discourage you and you may stop working out. Remember you didn’t get into the shape you are in overnight, so building fitness take time. Take your time, find an activity that you enjoy that you might do on a regular basis, find ways to increase your activity in your daily life and enjoy.

If you need extra support and motivation join a gym, an exercise group, or contact a fitness trainer to help design a program best suited for your level of fitness and fitness goals. Go on, get going ! Move your body !!!!
