I want to start exercising in the morning before I go to work. Do I have to eat before I work out? If so, what are some foods that won't make me feel too full? How long should I wait between eating and starting aerobic exercise?
I just started running on a treadmill, and my knees and ankles hurt a little while running. Is this from adjusting to running, or do I need to reconsider my shoes or running surface? Is it better to run on a track at the local high school than on my treadmill?
I am a 45-year-old female who doesn't exercise, even though I know it is important. My New Year's resolution is to be more active, but I'm not sure how to get started. How should I begin?
My gym goes on shortened hours from Christmas Eve through New Year's Day. With all the other activities going on at this time of year, I can't get to the gym when it's open. How can I work in fitness sessions without access to the ellipticals and weight machines?
I want to start taking classes at my local gym. I've been told that I will burn more calories and get faster results if I take a "boot camp" class. Is this the right way to go as a beginner? I want to lose 50 pounds and get more muscle tone.
I'm eight months pregnant, still active and want to get my body back in shape as soon as possible after giving birth. If I have a vaginal delivery, can I start exercising right away?
