How to Start Training INJURY FREE?

posted by Dr. Fitness - 

If you're a new exerciser or you're trying to get back to exercise, knowing where to start is usually a challenge. Having a affordable fitness coach takes the challenge out of the experience.  The right starting workout will depend on a variety of factors like your age, fitness level, goals, and any physical issues you may have.

Your Comprehensive Exercise Plan should Include:

Start with the basics. Whether your goal is to lose weight, get healthy, move better, get in better shape, or all of the above, there are three main components to your program:

Cardio exercise: This can be any activity that gets your heart rate up, from walking or jogging to cycling or taking a fitness class.

Weight training: You don't have to lift heavy weights or even spend a lot of time on weight training at first, but you do need to lift. Your muscles will get stronger and the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn overall. That helps with losing weight.

Flexibility training: You also need to have the flexibility to go through a full range of motion of each exercise. Stretching increases your flexibility and helps your body recover after exercise.

Your workout plan will ensure you get the right amount of each of these types of exercise throughout the week.
