  1. Check your physical condition. We know you’re excited, but before you start you need to check to see if your body is in optimal condition for exercise. Consult your doctor if necessary so that you are at 100% and nothing stops you.
  2. Determine your objective. One of the most common reasons to exercise is to look good, but remember that it is much more important to maintain a healthy physical condition. Your goal can vary a lot, you may want to run a short or long race, you want to lose weight, improve your fat levels, etc.. Whatever it is, it is important that it is achievable and realistic.
