A quick Google search of “how to start exercising” reveals endless information about weight loss, weight training, and running. What do you do when your immediate goals are things like:
- Getting out of bed without your back acting up
- Spending more time in the garden without your knees hurting
- Keeping up with and playing with your 3-year-old grandchild
- Improve your mood
Often, new exercisers and active agers are cautious when deciding on a new exercise routine for two reasons:
- Burdened by options: there’s yoga, resistance training, Couch to 5k, functional training, HITT, weight training, low-impact, CrossFit®, Pilates, interval, and swimming….
- Trying to figure out what to do has already exhausted you. Caution: the last thing you want is to try a new activity only to feel worse the next day.
Pilates For New Exercisers And Active Agers is a suitable first step.
