Before you begin any exercise program, check with your doctor to make sure you are healthy enough to exercise and ask if you should limit your exercise in any way.

  1. Go slow. Start with a daily 15-minute walk, and gradually quicken your pace and increase distance.
  2. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate physical activity. Do two, 15-minute spurts if necessary.
  3. Add strengthening activities at least twice a week.
