On Your Mark, Get Set Go!

The first step before embarking on an exercise routine is to consider your overall exercise goals, which could range from simply shedding a few pounds to running a marathon. Evaluate your current health status, focusing on your critical health numbers [blood pressure, waist size (BMI), weight, cholesterol and blood sugar], with the goal of using exercise to help keep them in a healthy normal range.
