i need basically a fitness program for beginners. i want to tone my body. i’ve heard that a good exercise is one where you hold out your arms and move them in circles. that kind of thing. i just need something laid out for me to follow and i’ll do it. i just don’t know what to do or where to begin?

While searching net i got these this from daily fitness site. But don’t know are they really good?

A good fitness program consists of the followings:

1. Cardio exercise – choose a cardio (running, swimming, walking, biking, jumping rope…….etc) you enjoy doing and do it 3-4 times per week, for 20-30 mins each. The cardio burns off body fat, strengthens your heart to keep it in good shape. It also expands your lung capacity so you’re able to take in more oxygen into your body

2. Toning exercise/strength training – it helps you build muscles and burns off body fat even more efficiently since muscles are metabolically active, so they burn more fat. Do 3-4 times per week, for 10-20 mins each

3. Stretching – it helps to increase your flexibility and maintains your muscles in nimble and flexible state so that you move efficiently and you’ve lower risk of injuries. Stretch for 3 times per week for about 10-15 mins each

4. Eat healthy, nutritious diet, to maintain good health and keep excess weight off

I definitely think that what you found on the the daily fitness site is a great outline to follow. I was in the same boat and wanted to tone my body and just genuinely be healthier. I have always enjoyed cardio, but needed to up my toning/exercise. I do the Insanity workouts, but also something I like to do each day is some simple at home exercises which takes about 20 minutes if I do it 2-3 times through.

I hope this link works for you. (just copy and paste)

It should take you to an image with home workouts to do each day of the week. Print it out and try some or all of these out at least 3-4 days a week. If you are feeling strong, do the circuit multiple times or more reps of each move. It should definitely help with the toning/exercise portion of your routine. I leave the printout sitting on my coffee table to I always see it and it reminds me to get a quick workout in. Once you start the jumping jacks to warm up, you'll feel ready to keep going! You also get some cardio with this too!

Hope this helps Smile

trying different ways in how you stride and use the handlebars will bring different results. It allows you to work at multiple paces. Ilove my gazelle and i can get my heartrate up fast with it.
