i need basically a fitness program for beginners. i want to tone my body. i’ve heard that a good exercise is one where you hold out your arms and move them in circles. that kind of thing. i just need something laid out for me to follow and i’ll do it. i just don’t know what to do or where to begin?

A good fitness program consists of the followings:

1. Cardio exercise – choose a cardio (running, swimming, walking, biking, jumping rope…….etc) you enjoy doing and do it 3-4 times per week, for 20-30 mins each. The cardio burns off body fat, strengthens your heart to keep it in good shape. It also expands your lung capacity so you’re able to take in more oxygen into your body

2. Toning exercise/strength training – it helps you build muscles and burns off body fat even more efficiently since muscles are metabolically active, so they burn more fat. Do 3-4 times per week, for 10-20 mins each

3. Stretching – it helps to increase your flexibility and maintains your muscles in nimble and flexible state so that you move efficiently and you’ve lower risk of injuries. Stretch for 3 times per week for about 10-15 mins each

4. Eat healthy, nutritious diet, to maintain good health and keep excess weight off Laugh

Well the most important thing, is to do cardio exercise start a two times a week and try to work up to doing it daily and for longer duration. If you improve your cardiovascular health, after just a few weeks you will start feeling good in everything you do and can really start benefiting from strength, training lifting.

I do pilates 2-4 times a week. That works well for me. DH is going to start that Insanity program.

Have you ever heard of Visalus? Its a protein shake that garuntees better results from your workouts when used as your recovery shake by helping to build that lean muscle. I used it for weight loss with amazing results (Used in this manner by replacing two meals a day and I loved it! lol) But I have just reached my goal weight so I have started using it in this way. I have a couple friends I have see get better results from p90x when they hit a plateau and they just partnered with the World Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation.

And I do it FREE check out more info ----->> http://jessicakopac.myvi.net/

You must spend at least 30 minutes on your daily workout.
First of all you should prefer to cardio exercises which are the best tools for the fitness improvement.
My daily workout routine is as follow:
push ups: 20
Pull ups: 20
Sits ups: 50
jogging: 15 minutes
swimming: 15 minutes.

I follow this channel for the last couple weeks ZuzkaLight - YouTube
Helped me a lot to get in shape. Most of the exercises are for women.
You should also consider changing your eating habits if you want better results.

I enjoy focusing on getting at least 30min of cardio a day. Not necessarily all running, elliptical, etc. but more just being able to accomplish at least 30min and day. I always feel that if I switch up my daily routines, I feel more motivated to finish. It's also nice when I do run/walk and then realize how far of a distance I have gone! Since I am easing back into my workouts, a nice long brisk walk has been really helping me.

why not try yoga? it is the best sport that can hold out your arms and move them in circles. generally speaking, it can help to balance your mood and body. so cool, right?
