You don’t always want a gym workout. Sometimes you want to get started in private. Not everyone can afford a personal trainer, so inviting one into your home through your DVD player is a great way to get moving. When you are very overweight, not every exercise is doable. Just start where you can, and do what you can do. In little bit of time, you’ll start to see that you can do more than you could do before. Baby steps will get you there. The important thing to remember with exercise is not to give up. Slow and steady wins the race.

Here are some great tips on how to get started if you are severely overweight. I know you can do it. You are so worth it. And check out these fun workouts too.
