Create a playlist of music that makes you MOVE- if you use Spotify, here are some of my favourite playlists and artists (but I still modify them quite a bit):
80s 90s Pump Up and Dance; artists- David Guetta and PiTBull; artist- Sleeping at Last (for cool down)
Create a space with a mat and no distractions
Aim for a minimum of 30 minutes and schedule it ahead of time - aiming for a minimum 3x per week
Consider wearable technology (FitBit/Garmin) to track your intensity/duration/heart rate
If trying intervals or HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)-Use a stopwatch or get an App for intervals: 12 Minute Athlete; Intervals; Totally Tabata
One example of a HIIT: 8 moves (2 cardio/2 Arms/2 Butt/Legs/2 Core) for 30 seconds each with a 15 sec break after each move done THREE TIMES through (3 sets) will get you 18 minutes followed by 10-12 minutes of stretching and cool-down
Start with Cardio bursts and then apply your ABCs (ARMS, BUTT/LEGS, CORE); TRY 30 seconds ON and then 10-15 sec OFF (break) then gradually go up in time from 30 to 50 seconds. Cardio bursts can include Jumping Jacks, Mountain Climbers, Invisible Skip Rope, Toe Touches with a Jump up or Marching with High Knees
Get going! and then Keep it Fresh- try going online - Fitness Blender is great!
**If it has been a long time since you've worked out and you have health concerns, consult a doctor and start slow- if you have an injury, be extra careful- there is always another move you can do safely!
