    im going to be brutally honest i am mega unfit! i mean i get worn out after 5 minutes on the cross trainer.

    i want to get into exercise but i just dont know where to start. i also want to speed up my weightloss as im going on holiday in september.

    i cant really afford to go to the gym so can anyone help me figure out some sort of regime to get me fit?!

    i would really really appreciate any help:cry:

    Walking is the best thing you can do to start with. For toning, you really need to do some resistance training. Take a look in a large Tesco store, they have loads of fitness equipment at reasonable prices

    I agree. Walking is the best exercise to start with. When i first started i aimed to walk 10,000 steps a day plus some brisk walking for how ever many minutes feel comfortable.

    Hi
    Think Im in the same boat as you, I was very unfit, never done any exercise in 40 years. My Blood Pressure went up so I stopped smoking and the weight piled on. I have now joined slimmimg world and started to lose the weight, but I also needed to increase my activity level. I started with walking and to give myself a goal I am doing Race for Life in June. I love to watch the slimming programmes on TV and I saw someone on there at a spin class and heard you can burn up to 800 cals. I found a spin class at my local leisure centre and started to attend that, which was really hard at first, I couldnt keep up as I was so unfit, then couldnt walk when I got off the bike! However its getter better and although I am not in the same league as some of the girls I can see an improvement. The leisure centre then made the spin classes free if you joined the Gym and as it worked out cheaper, I then joined the Gym. So I now pretty much do something almost every day, what started as walking has escalated! I am much fitter that I was but still have a way to go, hope this helps x
