Remember to start off slowly and work you way up to more vigorous and strenuous work outs over time. Working with a trainer can help you have a safer and consistent pace for gaining the health benefits without hurting yourself.

In brief: What do you like?
Ask yourself: what are you doing now? What would you like to do? Start moving 10 minutes every other day.
If you don't hurt the next day, you can add 5 minutes each week. Your future goal: move a total of 30 minutes every day. Some ideas ... At work: park further/walk more, take a flight of stairs at home: garden, clean house, play with your kids, crank up the music and dance.
