You may want to consult with your doctor before starting an exercise program, weight loss program, or diet. You should know your current fitness level.
Walking, biking/cycling, running, and hiking are all great exercises. But, be careful that you don't over do it.
Keeping a daily diet and exercise log is helpful in any exercise program. Record your walking, running, hiking, or biking/cycling distances. Calculate the number of calories burned during exercise. Some people find it very useful to record their daily calorie intake. Small changes in your diet in addition to your fitness program can make a huge difference. Try eating healthy low calorie snacks instead of high calorie sweets. Studies show that small changes in your diet and calorie intake can greatly help with weight loss.
Many experts recommend 30 to 45 minutes of exercise 3 to 5 days a week.
Start any exercise program slowly to avoid injuries.
Be sure you have the correct running shoes, walking shoes, hiking shoes, or biking/cycling shoes. Visit a specialty shoe store for expert advice on the proper shoes for your sport. Running, walking, cycling, and hiking use muscles in different ways. The experts at a shoe store can help determine if you have normal pronation, underpronation, or overpronation. The correct shoe will help support your foot and help minimize injuries. In addition to the correct shoes, orthotics can also be helpful.
A heart rate monitor can help you monitor your heart rate during exercise. You can calculate your target heart rate before you exercise and use the heart rate monitor to ensure your heart rate stays in a safe range while exercising.
A pedometer is a great way to keep track of how far you travel. You can find a good quality pedometer for sale at major online retailers for as little as $15. After exercising, you can compare your pedometer step count to the actual distance computed on the Map Pedometer / Google Pedometer website.
Set goals for yourself both in terms of weight loss and exercise milestones. If you are a runner and your doctor approves, you may want to run in a 5K, 10K, half marathon or even a full marathon.
