? Check with your doctor for precautions if you have any chronic health issues, specifically problems with your heart, lungs, muscles or joints.

? Start slowly. Remember, fitness is for life. You have time.

? Stay consistent. Exercising at lower levels frequently is safer than exercising at high intensities once in a while.

? Adapt the exercise to your level. Start without weights or resistance. Changing positions, adding weights and increasing frequency of exercise are suggested changes to make over time.

? If soreness or fatigue lasts more than 24 to 48 hours after activity, you probably are overdoing it.

? If you have difficulty with the basic levels of exercise, it might be an indication you need to work with a professional.
