Many of us may find ourselves looking in the mirror wanting to get fitter, healthier, and happier. These are great goals to strive towards, but is too much fitness a bad thing?
Starting a new fitness and health routine can seem daunting during these times, especially for those that have “been here before” and are looking to start over fresh. One thing to keep in mind is that too much of a good thing can be bad, especially when talking about fitness. The first week can be the difference-maker, because without proper rest and recovery, a participant can burn themselves out quickly.
A good goal to start with is 30 minutes a day of light-to-moderate exercise for five days. We can even break this down to 3-4 sessions that last 45 minutes to an hour. Without listening to your body and taking it slow, you could end up so sore you can’t move, or even worse, end up with an injury that takes you out of the game for awhile.This is why the new trend of group online classes are great ways to both start and continue on your fitness journey because the timing is already laid out for you, and the thinking is done before you even login to class. KS Fitness has been conducting online classes, and online programming through TrueCoach as well as digital outdoor workouts with Rukus via Zoom. All you have to do is sign up and get started with no guess-work or trying to figure out how machines work or how many reps to do. Plus, you will most times find a new community of peers that you didn’t know existed, or bring friends with you for one heck of an online workout. By going to classes, you’ll ease right back into fitness and into that healthier lifestyle.
If you are nervous about starting a class because you think it may be to hard or advanced, look for a beginners class that will bring you slowly into the environment and teach you the moves safely, but also leave you sweaty and ready for more! When you’re ready to vamp it up, head to the next level and get ready to change your life!
Fitness is the best gift you can give yourself. Ease into it and make it a journey, not just a destination to an end goal. Just like life, there are many paths to take in fitness, just make sure to start.
