There are many simple, easy on the pocket, but the effective forms of exercise, such as walking or jogging. All that one needs is a comfortable cloth and shoes and perhaps a bottle of water. One might even embed this exercise in a regular daily routine by taking a walk to the office or school, instead of using a means of transportation. Aerobic classes
One may also choose to attend aerobic classes. It is very important to choose the class that suits the current fitness level of the individual. Aerobic exercise implies a lot of choreographed movements performed in order to raise the heart rate. Beginners will find it hard to coordinate with the rest of the class but it does not take long to get used to the new kind of movements.
A good workout makes the body move fast, forcing the heart and lungs to work harder than while resting. Too light of a workout might be completely ineffective. However, workout pace should be gradually increased. Pushing too hard at the start might even lead to injuries that might put one away from aerobics for an indefinite time. If there are any doubts or uncertainties about which class to choose, it is best to consult a doctor or a fitness professional who can access one’s fitness levels and give advise.
Workouts at home
With commitment and a steady routine, anyone can do exercises at home. This kind of fitness best suits those who are, because of their busy daily routine, unable to attend organized classes. The point of aerobic exercise is simple: increase the heart rate while increasing the blood circulation and forcing the lungs to work harder.
A set of warm-ups performed at the beginning of an exercise will slightly increase the heart rate. Walking in place or moving the arms and legs will do the trick.
After the initial progress, one should be able to do more movements and to do them faster. At that point, one should turn to jogging in place and moving the arms and legs faster. The heart pace should be kept up for at least half an hour, at least three times a week. It might be good to include music to up the tempo of exercise. Adding something new to the regular aerobic routine can also show to be a great motivator – jumping jacks for example.
