Have a goal to work towards

Be sure to have a definitive goal to work towards, so that your workouts can be focused around meeting defined goals. Have a plan for what your exercise routine will consist of weekly and long term. That will help you stay on track.

Go easy on yourself

Especially if working out is new to your routine, ease into how often and how intense your workouts are. You’re much better off exercising 1 – 2 times a week for 30 minutes and slowly increasing.

In addition, reaching for the heaviest weights on your first workout can lead to an injury and make you feel overwhelmed. Taking breaks in between workouts will give your body a chance to recover and you’ll be more energized for your next workout. It’s important to push yourself to work hard, but the last thing you want to do is give up or injure yourself.

Ask for help

One of the perks to joining a gym is that you are never on your own. Asking for help on how to use the machines properly will allow you to get the most out of your workout. Hiring a personal trainer can be very helpful, whether to work with consistently or to get an idea of the types of exercises you should be doing.

Mix up your workouts

Having a variety of workouts is not only best for your overall fitness, but it will also be more enjoyable. Switch up your workouts between aerobic, strength training, flexibility, and balance. If there’s a sport you enjoy playing, be sure that’s in your fitness routine so you’re likely to stick with it and meet your goals.

If you have any questions or safety concerns about how you can meet your fitness goals, please speak with your primary care provider.
