What’s the best way to kick-start your fitness goals?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question as the best workout for you will depend on your individual fitness level, goals, and any medical conditions you may have. However, some exercises that are generally considered safe and effective, especially if you are just starting out include:
1. Walking: A simple and low-impact form of exercise that is easy to do and suitable for all fitness levels.
2. Swimming: A full-body workout that is easy on the joints and helps improve cardiovascular fitness.
3. Strength training: Using weights or resistance bands to build muscle and improve overall health.
4. Yoga is a low-impact exercise that helps improve flexibility, balance, and strength.
You must consult with a doctor or a certified personal trainer to develop a safe and effective workout plan tailored to your individual needs and goals.
What if I am plus size?
You may fall above the standard clothing size range in the UK and may face unique challenges in finding comfortable and supportive workout gear - that is why Well Fit exists. Our mission is to promote health and wellness for all, regardless of size, and to provide a positive and inclusive environment for individuals to participate in physical activity.
Starting with low-impact exercises in an outfit you can feel confident in could make all the difference.
There are many plus-size athletes that guide you through exercises and even strength training programmes. Here are a few that we love on Instagram.
All workouts are adaptable to your level. Engaging in daily movement has immediate positive impacts on brain function and can even lessen feelings of anxiety. Brief, moderate-intensity physical activity lasting at least 10 to 20 minutes is enough to boost executive function and recall memory.
