Bigger benefits with a trainer

I broke down and hired a trainer to help with strength training. Been doing it for months and have never had a duplicate workout. My fitness level has skyrocketed because of the varying workouts and the extra push I get. So worth the money. I'll never go without again.

An easy exercise following inactive periods or sluggish mornings

Tai chi helps me get past that initial barrier to exercise, when it just all seems too much to even contemplate. It's so gentle that it doesn't feel like exercise and pretty soon I'm ready to move on to other types of exercise.

Low/High Impact

The high impact exercises on the DVD are to hard? Don't give up. In stead of jumping along with the instructor march with the knees high at you place and you still have a great workout. Instead of jumping jacks step rights and left and do the arm movements. Don't give up! You can do it!

getting workouts done

This is only good if you keep your word to yourself. I enter my workout pts. before I do it & then I know I MUST do it, if not I have lied to spark & more importantly to myself.

Make friends at the gym or bring one along

When going to the gym, especially if doing the aerobic classes, try to make friends or bring one along. Motivate each other by showing up, encouraging one another, trading tips on workouts, & swapping healthy food recipes.
