Top 10 Exercises for Beginners


We all need to start somewhere.  The question is, what are the safest exercises we can start without injuring ourselves?

Samir Becic and Health Fitness Revolution organized a list of the best exercises for any novice wanted to get fitter and healthier:

  • Walking: Try walking 15-30 mins depending on your available time frame 5 times a week.
  • Biking: Even though biking is a more strenuous exercise than walking, it is still a great novice workout.  Try 15-30 mins 5 times a week.
  • Swimming: Great exercise because it is low impact on joints and you use all your muscles at once.  Try 20-30 mins 3 times a week.
  • Hiking:  We know that hiking is not easy to do daily (depending on where you live) but it is a great sport and our recommendation is to do it whenever you get a chance.
  • Jogging: Once you feel comfortable, you can add intervals of jogging into your walks.  Start with adding 1-2 minutes of jogging every 5 mins, 3 times a week.
  • Beginner Yoga: Most studios offer a beginner’s class, and it’s a great way to stretch out and strengthen your core. Aim for 3 times a week.
  • Beginner Pilates: Pilates focuses mainly on core and involves more strength training than yoga.  Once you feel comfortable with yoga, add Pilates to your routine 2 times a week.
  • Beginner Circuit Training: Low impact strength training with active resting, flexibility, mobility, full range of motion.  2-3 times a week for 30 minutes.
  • Low impact Kick-Boxing for Beginners:  Great way to train your body with coordination and mobility.  This impacts your entire body and is a great cardio workout.  2 times a week.
  • Meditation:  Every beginner needs to take some time out and relax, focus, and enjoy life.  Try to meditate daily for 5-10 mins.
