Getting back into exercise can be hard, especially if you’ve been out of the game for a while. But there are some simple tips to help you ease back into it… because it’s never to late to start!
Don’t overdo it right away.
Start slow. If you are feeling totally overwhelmed by it all, pick something easy and work your way into it. Start with a brisk walk or a light jog. Or speak to your group fitness instructor or a member from our Health Club team about ways you can ease back into it. Once you start feeling good and seeing results, getting back into healthy habits will be easy.
Commit to just five minutes.
Making a small commitment of just five minutes will feel a lot less daunting than committing to a long workout. Once you are moving you will likely end up going for longer.
Find a friend to keep you motivated.
It’s all too easy to find excuses not to work out if you’ve only got yourself to answer to. Finding a friend to workout with is a great way to boost motivation, hold each other accountable and stick to your routine.
Take a group fitness class.
