Get the most out of your workouts. Here are 10 TNT exercise tips to keep in mind:

1. Be sure to warm-up and stretch before you start. Begin exercising slowly, start at a lower intensity and duration and gradually work up to higher levels.

2. Select activities you enjoy, and consider the following questions:

 - Do you like exercising alone or with a group of friends?

 - Do you enjoy indoor or outdoor activities?

3. Choose a time of day that fits into your schedule — if you are not a morning person, schedule it at lunchtime or in the evening. Also take into consideration work, family and the weather. No specific

4. Exercise does not have to be expensive, you do not have to join a health club or buy equipment and all you need is a good pair of walking shoes.

 - Choose exercise shoes with proper support and balance to protect your knees, back and ankles.
 - Consult your health educator if you need some ideas of what type of shoes to purchase.

5. Listen to your body — exercise should not be painful. Don’t believe the phrase, “No pain, no gain.”

6. Make a strong commitment to a minimum of eight to 12 weeks. Your body may respond in four weeks, but it may take eight weeks to notice the benefits and to make exercise a part of your daily routine.

7. If you don’t enjoy the exercise you have chosen, be flexible. Try a different activity, join a friend or add variety.  Try a challenge like this Guns Bun & Abs 30 Day Challenge.

8. Set up an exercise schedule; make appointments with yourself to exercise.

9. Have perseverance — this is time devoted just to you.

10. Keep exercise records to assess your progress.  Refresh yourself with the FIT Principles and get the most out of your workouts.
