You’ve got to start somewhere and going for a walk is the perfect place to start. Try and go for a powerwalk rather than just a leisurely stroll to really get your heart rate up. It’s easy and best of all, it’s free. Once your fitness improves, you could always turn your walk into a run.

Believe it or not, you burn calories while you are cleaning so If you find there’s not enough hours in the day to fit in that exercise DVD or go for a walk, you will get a workout whilst giving the house a tidy. You might lose a few pounds by getting active, and maybe gain a few by cleaning down the back of the sofa!
The initial cost of a bike may set you back a little but it’s a great investment into your fitness. You will be able to hop onto your bike and go for a ride whenever you want. You will get a lot more for your money than at the gym. Even cycling to and from work is a great way to get in some exercise, especially if you struggle to find the time.
