it is never too late to undo whats done, do not what’s done, can’t be undone. And you are firmly convinced that you will look positively weird while you workout and people will STARE!!
But to tell you the truth, all it takes is one determined step on one fine morning. And gradually, you will find yourself not only comfortably getting fitter but also happier than you were! And you will look forward to the workout classes.
But before you start working out, there are a couple of things you should be completely aware about. They are…
1. Before you start, consult your physician
This is important because, only your physician can tell you whether you can work out safely without hurting yourself. You also need to find out how you can monitor your workout sessions if you are taking any medications which can actually adversely affect your blood pressure or your heart rate.
Also, ask your doctor what kind of exercises you can do and what you should avoid.
2. Where will you workout?
The next thing you need to be sure of is where you want to carry out your workout sessions. You can either workout at the gym or in the comfort of your own home. The advantage of working out in a gym is that personal trainers will help you get started the right way. Also, certain workout equipments and aerobic classes will make your exercise sessions easier and effective. And if you can have a friend to go with you, you will feel more motivated and more interested in your sessions.
You can also workout within the privacy of your home. A cardio machine or a treadmill will help you out. For further help, take the help of workout videos.
3. Decide what to wear during the session
Whatever you choose, comfort and quality should be your goal. Also, don’t forget the comfort shoes.
4. What are the right exercises for you?
When you have taken care of everything, you can’t go wrong with the kind of exercises you choose for yourself. Some exercises, — irrespective of whether it is at home or the gym — which will be absolutely right for you are:
Walking: It is the least-intimidating and all you need is a pair of comfortable shoes. Walk at your own pace and gradually increase the time, starting with 5 minutes at a time. Also, you can increase your speed after a few days.
Water Exercises: Being overweight, sometimes you can feel your knees and feet hurting from the excess weight it carries. Water aerobics and similar other water exercises are the ideal solution to this problem. Also, water exercises ensure that you burn quite a few calories. Visit your trainer to find out what kind of water exercises will be suitable for you.
Biking: Ride a bike, feel light and simultaneously reduce pressure on your joints while exercising. Get hold of a stationary bike set up either at your home or at the gym. Start out slowly and with smaller time sessions. Gradually increase the durations of these sessions and you will
actually feel good about this exercise session.
Dancing: It is easy, it is fun and you don’t require any particular skills to “work out” while dancing. Simply turn on the music and get yourself moving…any time of the day. If you can actually do this for an hour, you will be able to burn hundreds of calories. Also, if you are interested, you can join specific dance classes or purchase a DVD.
P.S. Belly Dancing is the most ideal option for you.
