Fitness Tips

Whether your goal is to begin an exercise program or to maintain a program already adopted, take a minute to read the following tips.

  • To prepare your body for exercise by increasing muscle temperature and heart rate, warm-up by doing the activity of your choice at a slow, controlled pace for 5-10 minutes.
  • Next, stretch your muscles to be used in the activity. Hold stretches for 15-20 seconds. Do not bounce while stretching.
  • Begin the activity slowly and progress to a moderate or high intensity.
  • Maintain proper form for safe and effective participation. Working out harder is not necessarily better. A moderate pace for a longer time may be more beneficial for your personal goals.
  • Reduce the pace of the activity before stopping. A 5-10 minute cool-down period allows the heart rate and blood flow to decrease gradually.
  • Upon completion of your activity, stretch muscles to assist in recovery and to help increase flexibility.
