Fitness Game Plan

Now that you’re convinced that being more active is within reach, there are some things you should know before jumping into fitness:

1. USE CAUTION

Physical activity should not be hazardous to your health; consequently, it’s sometimes advisable to consult a physician first. Refer to the "Preparticipation Checklist" to see if you should.

2. DETERMINE YOUR CURRENT LEVEL OF FITNESS

Knowing where you stand will help you design a program that isn’t so difficult that it causes injury or frustration, or so easy that it fails to meet your needs. Completing the “Activity Assessment” will give you a good sense of where you are now and how to begin.

3. DEFINE YOUR GOALS

Decide what you want out of a fitness program and set goals. Doing so will keep you on track and help you motivate yourself to achieve the goals you set.

4. DESIGN A PROGRAM

Build a fitness program based on your needs and abilities (as defined by your fitness assessment), and on your desires (as defined by your personal goals). Take into consideration the time you have available and the activities you enjoy.

5. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS

Keeping track of your progress will not only keep you focused on your goal, but can help keep you motivated, as you witness how far you’ve come. Then you can reward yourself for a job well done!
