The type of exercise you do will depend on you and what you like to do.

What are the exercises that you hate doing? Do you want to pay membership fees at a gym or do you want to buy equipment to use at home? These are all things you will need to consider when starting an exercise routine.

If you choose something that you don't like to do, you will not keep doing the exercises long enough to benefit from them. Before starting any exercise routine, give it some thought - if you don't like jogging, you aren't going to get up at 6 AM and go running.

If you can't find something you like to do, try starting with a simple walking routine. Walking is great exercise, as it suits every level of fitness. It is just the intensity and duration that differs. Walking can also be a social exercise, as it isn't to difficult to find a training partner to chat with while you exercise. Walking with a partner will also make time go by faster.

If you are just starting out with exercising, you should start by walking for 10 minutes each day. Then, every 2 weeks increase each walk by 5 minutes. To keep things interesting, you could walk a different course every few days. You can also try to find a different friend to walk with you each day of the week.

If walking isn't your thing, try a fitness center. They have a variety of equipment and most have trainers on hand to answer any questions you may have. When you choose a fitness center, make sure that they give good service.

If they aren't willing to treat you well before you join, then they certainly won't after you join. You should also make sure that the equipment they use is well taken care of. It's easy to find out, as all you have to do is listen to the machines. If they squeak a lot or make noise, then chances are they aren't being taken care of.

If you still aren't sure what exercises you want to do, try asking friends, family or co-workers what exercises they do. Look up books on exercises at your local library or on the internet to find something you are interested in trying.

No matter what exercise you choose, you should start at a low level of intensity and build it up over a period of weeks, which is essential to the longevity of your exercise program. If you start off too hard, you could end up with an injury which will require time off to get over.

Before starting any workout routine, be sure to consult a professional before beginning and always warm up properly to avoid injury.
