Whether you’re getting back into working out, need a place to start, or just want to go over the foundations of an exercise program, this Beginner Program 1.0 is where you will want to get started! With a plethora of workouts available on Get Healthy U TV, it can feel overwhelming to get started. That’s why we have created this 28-Day Beginner Program 1.0 for you to follow along with and take the guessing out of which workout to do each day!
With each workout, you will notice that we have a dynamic warm-up before the actual workout, followed by a 5 minute cool down consisting of cooling down the muscles. It is important to start each workout with a dynamic warm-up getting the muscles ready to work! Your Beginner Program 1.0 Calendar includes a variety of Premium workouts like indoor walking, 10-minute workouts, low-impact workouts, yoga, and beginner strength workouts to help you burn fat, build muscle, and tone you head to toe!
From Chair Strength, Indoor Power Walking, and Walk Sweat Sculpt workouts, you will repeat each workout only once throughout the month. The reason we have you repeating the workout 2 times within a month is so that you can see and track your progress as you continue to build strength and confidence. What you may notice is that you are able to pick up a heavier pair of dumbbells, or maybe your heart rate comes down quicker after a cardio session! These are true signs of strength!
ADOR – Active Day of Rest are also incorporated each week. What is an ADOR you might ask!? An Active Day of Rest is a day to take off of “strenuous” workouts but a chance to still move your body. For example, maybe you take a walk with the dog, or you grab your foam roller and stretch out your sore muscles. These are all ways to actively move your body with the intention of letting our bodies recover from the other workouts we have done throughout the week! Remember, an ADOR is not a day to just “veg” out on the couch and not move all day! 🙂
As you follow the 28 Day Beginners Program Calendar, remember these are just suggestions. If you’re extremely sore or you want to swap out a different workout, by all means – YOU DO YOU!! We are here to help and remember take it day by day!! YES YOU CAN!
All exercises you perform are your own responsibility and you perform them at your own risk. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider before starting any physical exercise, fitness or wellness regiments of any kind.
