How to Start a Fitness Routine in 2021

If you Google “how to start a workout routine,” you will find some great advice from renowned sources.

For example, the Mayo Clinic has five steps with instructions. The five steps are:

  1. Assess your fitness level 
  2. Design your program
  3. Assemble the necessary equipment
  4. Get started
  5. Monitor your progress

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

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

And while you can start a fitness program with minimal equipment, fitness equipment isn’t cheap. If you buy anything, you want to make the right decision. But what should you buy? Is that salesperson right in saying “you absolutely need to have this gear… and all these supplements 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 daily walk. Increase the distance and pace 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 members came to us after trying to start a program. It can be confusing so we like to take all the guesswork out.

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. That’s it. Forget all the other stuff that can get complicated. You’re in charge of Number 4 only. We’ve got everything else covered!
