wild teddyHead of Health and Fitness Excellence at Planet Fitness, shares practical exercise tips for anyone looking to start a new routine:

  • Start with a dynamic stretching routine. Our bodies need to be flexible to perform at their best. Start each workout with dynamic stretches like forward lunges with a trunk twist, knee-to-chest hugs, bends and stretches, or jumping jacks. This will get the blood flowing efficiently and release endorphins which will put anyone in a positive mood and help maximize the results of a workout.
  • Improve stamina and stamina. One goal many have when exercising is to improve their overall endurance. An important factor is simply to find cardio equipment that you enjoy the most and start slowly. Be aware of breathing patterns and heart rate as you progress through the cardio session. Keep track of how long it takes to feel breathless or tired, and try to increase this amount of time with each workout.
  • Add strength training to your diet. Including an element of strength training is essential to any fitness routine. It helps burn calories and build lean muscle. In the beginning, instead of trying to hit a specific number of reps per set (like three sets of 10 reps), try to perform as many reps as you can in a given amount of time (like three sets of 60 seconds) . This will remove the pressure to hit a specific number and instead encourage everyone to celebrate the number of reps achieved.

“As we ‘move forward’ into a new season, making time to exercise is an important step in improving our mental and physical well-being,” Savage said. “These tips are designed to help everyone feel motivated to start a new fitness routine.
