Starting a Fitness Routine (Again?)
Wise advice for making a lasting commitment to fitness.
It’s not always easy to start and maintain an exercise routine. I can remember back in the day when I would put on my shiny spandex with leg warmers (a very important accompaniment) and head to the gym for a step aerobics class. That lasted a week or so because while I looked fab, it really was hard work. I tried jogging for a few days and then realized I got really winded, which wasn’t very fun. I even tried Zumba, just last year. I felt a little like a paloomba . . . but oh, well, at least I tried. Well, that’s fine for who I was, but now I’m 45 and it’s time to get serious about this. To start me on a better track this time, I decided to reach out to a professional for advice. Molly Galbraith is a strength coach and personal trainer with Girls Gone Strong. She is also featured in the Journey into Wellbeing’s pilot episode. Here are her top suggestions for creating a fitness routine that will outlast your legwarmers!
