How to Start a Fitness Routine in 2021

If you Google “how to start a workout routine,” you’ll see some great advice from renowned sources.

For example, the Mayo Clinic has five steps for you, with instructions under each heading:

1. Assess fitness level.

2. Design program.

3. Assemble equipment.

4. Start.

5. Monitor progress. 

We’re not going to argue with the Mayo Clinic! But those five steps are really far from simple for the average person.

For example, most people don’t know how to assess fitness, and even fewer know how to design a program and monitor progress. 

And while you can start a program with minimal equipment, fitness equipment isn’t cheap. So if you buy anything, you want to make the right decision. But what do you buy? And is that salesperson correct in saying you “absolutely must have this gear—and this supplement at half off”?

Let’s be clear: We want you to start a fitness program in 2021, and any activity is better than no activity. You can literally start with a short daily walk. Increase the distance a little every day, and you’ll see some progress!

But the Mayo Clinic list puts a lot of pressure on a person to research, plan, purchase and assess. That can be totally overwhelming! We know this because a lot of our current clients came to us after trying to start a program but becoming totally confused. Some even quit trying altogether before eventually calling us.

We’re going to simplify the Mayo Clinic list for you: All you have to do is work on Number 4. 

Just start by coming to talk to us.
