Timely advice now that the weather has turned and people feel the need to get out and exercise.
It is important to point out that not everyone can start with traditional exercise. If you are in a special population (overweight or obese, elderly, diabetic or arthritic), modified exercise could be a good starting point.
Chair Exercise and water exercise are non-impact options that will get you on the path to consistent exercise without the risk of injury. Since chair and water exercise is a bit easier than some other forms of fitness activities, you will be more likely to stay with your goals and not feel that "I'm too old" or "I'm too sick", or "I'm too heavy."
Of course, speak with your health care professional before beginning any exercise program if you have been inactive for a while.
It's never too late to start feeling better, both physically and emotionally. Action does not guarantee happiness, but there can be no happiness without action.
Write out your goals and start moving. Today!
