Are you curious about how to start a programmed fitness routine? Watch Dr. Armando Vidal as he guides you through what to expect and how to prepare to join a fitness program.
Main things to consider when getting started in programmed fitness routines:
1. Select a coach and a gym. Look up gyms in your areas and stop by 3 or 4 that appeal to you. Speak with the coach and ask any questions you have.
2. Look for an instructor with a reputable certification such as CSCS certification by NSCA, a USWA certification, or a history of competitive lifting.
3. Assess your ability. Take into account any previous injuries you may have sustained and take time to build a base in order to avoid injury.
4. Rest and nutrition are very important in any fitness regimen. Eating and sleeping properly will allow you to exercise effectively.
