Start Strength Training Without Stressing Your Joints

It can be hard to get started on any fitness program. Too many of us wait until we’ve lost weight or feel at a certain fitness level before we’re even willing to attempt a new program. But you shouldn’t wait until you’ve hit a certain point to get started because you can get started today! Plus hitting that goal will be that much easier if you get started on the new fitness program instead of waiting.

I love CeCe‘s attitude on fitness! There’s always a way to get moving and modify exercises so you can workout. “Don’t wait on your weight—you can live a fabulous life at any size! Having weak or sore knees might get in the way of our health goals, but I never want anyone to feel discouraged. In my experience, there are adaptations for almost everything! When I modified my workouts, I was still able to get the results I was looking for, and eventually I didn’t need as many changes to avoid joint stress.”
