How To Get Started

How To Get Started

Have you ever been on an airplane and heard, "In the event of an emergency, secure your mask before assisting others?"  It's so important to take care of yourself (sometimes first!) in order to be able to help anyone else.  Taking care of yourself is not selfish.  Trust me, I can't tell you how many times I have had a husband/wife/child/friend come in to my office and say, "thank you for giving me my ______ back!"  


Take some time to invest in yourself today and start moving your body. There are so many options when it comes to fitness.  From going on hikes in the local mountains, to participating in a community 5K, to group cycling classes, or personal training and beyond. There is something for everyone and most importantly you just need to find what interests you!


Before anything, set a few SMART goals. In case you missed the blog about SMART goals, click here.  Once you have that done, set a plan of action.  If you're capable of beginning a program on your own, super! If not, don't hesitate to consider hiring a trainer. (Check out our video here on hiring the right trainer!). 


Knowing and understanding proper is critical and will prevent injuries. Having an expert trainer will not only insure your safety, but also allow you to feel confident enough to add weight and explore more complex movements in the future.

Some tips for your journey!

  1. Start with setting goals. Make sure to set some that are measurable so you can track them throughout the process. 
  2. Make it a priority to move your body. Think about some extra time throughout your day that just slips away… Like snoozing your alarm three times or aimlessly scrolling through social media for 30 minutes after work. You can convert that time into productive time dedicated to yourself! 
  3. Prepare for the hard days. When it feels like moving your body is the LAST thing you want to do, just do it. Maybe do half of what you had planned or stretch or just go on a walk. Something is better than nothing!
  4. There are modifications for almost every exercise so don’t feel intimidated about trying things out. For example, doing a push-up on a bench or with your knees on the ground. This allows for the movement to take place while adding extra support. 
  5. Everyone has their own pace. Do not feel pressured into doing anything out of your comfort zone. You will achieve your goals, everything takes time and perseverance.


Staying active and dedicating time to bettering yourself is a commitment. There will be ups and downs throughout the process, stay positive and enjoy the journey!
