Our Best Advice for Exercise Newbies


We love our readers. And we always want to help them any way we can. So when Eiri in Kansas sent us this video and an email saying, “I just started a vlog to document my journey to a healthier me because I cannot afford a gym or a dietitian or anything like that, and I was hoping that by reaching out online I could get some people to give me some more tailored advice to help me achieve my goals,” we were like: we got you girl.

Here’s Eiri’s first vlog entry:

And here’s her big goal and motivation: “My biggest goal is just to be healthy and in shape, but I’d be lying if I said the idea of dropping 40 pounds by next summer doesn’t appeal to me. My biggest hurdle is exercise, though — I just don’t know how to ease myself into it, and what I’m supposed to be doing. I want to lose fat, but also put on a little muscle, but I am basically just going on long walks right now because I am at a loss for what to do!

I want to make these changes because there are a lot of things I want to do with my life. Adventurous things, like running a marathon and bungee jumping and hiking Zion National Park — BIG stuff. But I can’t do any of them if I’m not living the healthiest lifestyle possible.”

Inspiring, right? We think so — because we firmly believe that everyone deserves to create and live a healthy life that they love.

And therefore we answered her question in the same way she shared it with us: via vlog!

And here are some of our best bodyweight workouts that we think Eiri will love once her habit of exercise is set!

And now we turn the question to you readers. What advice would you give Eiri to reach her goals? Leave it in the comments and thanks in advance for helping a fellow reader out! Jenn
