Starting Exercise and Improving Physical Activitity

2/13/2017

First, talk to your doctor before starting any exercise program. Here are five easy tips to get you started.

  1. Dress. Wear comfortable clothes and non-skid, lace-up shoes for exercise.
  2. Start slow. Starting with 5-10 minutes per day is a great way to begin.
  3. Drink water. Stay hydrated, especially when you start exercising.
  4. Keep a record. Write down your activities so you can track your progress and stay motivated and consistent.
  5. Check your community. Exercise on your own or check out some of the community resources available. Health clubs, churches and community centers are great resources.
