Simply Fit ... Easy fitness plan for you to get in shape!

Ok Team, like with any excercise program you should always consult a physician before beginning. Feel free to modify this program at any time based on your level of fitness. In addition, I will field questions and assist you with modifications as needed.

Start slow! If you haven't worked out for awhile, no need to do too much too soon and end up with and injury and not much in the improved fitness category. So relax, listen to your body and be consistant. That's what it takes to get into shape without killing yourself in the process. The right equipment always helps prevent injuries too!

Week 1 .. head over to the local track, walking path, trail, neighborhood, or treadmill 3 times this week. Walk for 5 minutes to warm up. Stretch slightly to avoid injury. Walk for 30 seconds, then jog, shuffle, walk faster, whatever you name it, for 30 seconds. 30 on, 30 off is what I call it and this begins your journey to total fitness. Easy, fast, over. I usually come home from work, change clothes, take a sip of Coke and head out. If I sit down or rest, I may not get back up to workout. Do it and get it over with! Consistancy is the key here.

Summary of the 30 on, 30 off workout:

Tues, Thurs, Sat .. 5 minute walk warmup followed by light stretching.
Walk 30 seconds, jog for 30 seconds. Repeat non-stop for a total of 5 minutes.
2 minute walk cool down followed by light stretching.

Great Job! Go home! Let me know how it went.
