Here are a few things to remember before you start exercising:

  1. Water. Water helps your body function optimally and helps keep you from getting thirsty.
  2. Get ready to sweat!
  3. Comfortable shoes. Running shoes, trainers or athletic sneakers provide the best cushioning and support for a variety of exercises. Avoid fashion shoes or skateboard shoes. They’re great for just hanging out and looking good, but they’re not designed for working out.
  4. Consume some protein. Protein helps your body repair and rebuild, and taking at least 15g of protein after you train will go a long way towards alleviating any muscle soreness. Yes, you might be a little sore after the first few workouts, but this is normal, and within a day or two the soreness will be gone as your body builds up its tolerance to the exercise.
