What Are The Best Types
Of Exercise For You?




You're ready to start exercising, but don’t know what types of exercise are best for you.

First and foremost, before starting any exercise program consult your health care provider first to discuss any possible health risks or complications.

He or she can provide recommendations and specific direction to best fit your health circumstances, limitations, or restrictions.



Set a Fitness Goal

After you’ve been given the 'all clear' to start, the first step is to set a fitness goal.

Some questions to consider before choosing your exercise:
  • Do you want to lose weight?
  • Are you looking to firm and tone or strengthen?
  • How much time do you have?
  • When is the best time to exercise; in the day or the evening?

Find a Support Group - Join a Workout Group

Emotional support is crucial to your success. There are going to be days of discouragement and having someone to encourage you will be important.

Studies show that people who work out together are far more successful at reaching health and fitness goals.

Eat A Healthy, Well-Balanced Diet

It’s not just about how active you are. Take the time to eat properly.

A well balanced diet is essential, especially if you are exercising on a daily basis.
