New Year, New You? Workout Tips for Beginners

Before starting any intense new workout, you should check with your health care provider.

You may be considering a new workout as you kick off the new year. It’s important to remember that before starting any intense new workout, you should check with your health care provider.

Your personal trainer would tell you that right now is a great time to start and not to procrastinate. Some disagree. Research from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania shows the best day to start a workout is a Monday.

Morning workouts are ideal for fat burning and lowering blood pressure, according to experts, but you may actually have better performance if you wait until the afternoon because you’ll have some food in your system to help with energy levels.

Tips for success? Ease in, don’t overdo it from day one. Always warm up and cool down to prevent injury. Finally, identify your “why” to keep you motivated.
