Here’s A Basic Workout To Get You Started

One of the most confusing things to do wihen starting to workout (again) is knowing what to do.  Sometimes, it's intimidating to go to the gym.  On top of that, once you get over the intimidation, then you need to figure out something to do.  Then, once you get to that point, it's a bit overwhelming to start lifting weights in front of all those people.
 
BUT, I have a solution for you!  Something that can be done in the comfort of your own home AND you don't need any weights to do it!
 
So, without going on and on about it, I'll get right to it.  It's squats and it's push-ups.  By squats I mean just your natural body weight squats.  Some people call them deep knee bends. But whatever you prefer to call them.

Has Life Kicked You In The Teeth Yet?

Here at TFS, we focus on the "Fitness Over 45" crowd.  Why? Because I feel strongly this crowd is in need of help living that fit and healthy lifestyle.  (Also, because I'm in that demographic as well!)

Very seldom, and maybe never, have you heard me talk about other personal trainers.  I feel anyone who has taken to the time to get a Personal Trainer's License, no matter for which organization, has some sense and is willing to share knowledge with the world.

Speaking of knowledge, let me ask you a question?  If you're in the "Fit Over 45" crowd, do you feel you have more life experience/knowledge than say, some who is 25 years old?  Sure you do!

I say that to lead into what this article is all about, and it's a saying I've often said. 

To Many Option In The Fitness World?

You know, it seems like every time we turn on the TV, there are all kinds of gagets and gizmos saying how you can get 6 packs abs in 2 minutes a day, or ride this machine for 10 minutes and you'll be as fit as ever, or if you ben this way during an exercise it will work these muscles, bla-bla-bla.

Most people can relate to the "I bought this thing and now I use it to hang clothes" thing when it comes to these gagets, yes? 

If you're anything like me, I'm not looking for the latest and greatest, I'm just wanting something that I enjoy doing and I can see results!
