Taking the first step into a workout routine is an awesome experience. You’ve decided to change the way you’re living and you are now taking action to make sure that it becomes a reality. Starting this journey can be challenging and filled with moments of wanting to give up, but here are some to consider when you start a workout routine:
What are your goals?
You can start working out with any specific goals in mind, but goals work to help keep you motivated on the days that you just don’t feel like it. Do you want to lose weight? Gain muscle? Just be healthier all-around? Getting a clear idea of why you’re starting can be helpful moving forward.
What is your current fitness level?
Asking yourself how fit you are now can help you decide how hard you should go in some of your first workouts. This can also be helpful for you to tell coaches, as they can help you with exercise alterations if you aren’t familiar with certain movements or need them to be a little easier.
What activities do you like?
With so many possible workout options, it’s a good idea to find something that really fits with who you are and what you like. Do you need a coach to motivate and push you or do you prefer to workout on your own? Are you prepared for a class setting or would personal training be a good first step? Once you know what you like to do, find a gym or studio that caters to that.
Starting was the first step. Now make sure you follow through by setting and understanding your goals, gauging your current fitness level, and deciding on a workout that is fun and exciting for you.
