exercise tips anyone?

I recently joined the gym as I am trying to lose some weight and have started eating healthier - as one of my many new year's resolutions. I would really like to get into a good routine of exercising regularly and eating healthy, so that I have more energy as well as more confidence in myself. I was wondering whether anybody has any tips for exercising at the gym? the best way to exercise to lose weight, etc. I would really like to hear your opinions! I hope everybody had an amazing nye! I am very excited about 2009 and all it's possibilities. I plan on squeezing as much into the year as I possibly can and living life to the fullest :) If you would like to share your resolutions or your hopes for the year, I'd love to hear them also.



  1. you should probably run for about 15 mins or so. Then do free weights for about 45-50 mins (no you don't end up as a bodybuilder). Get someone to make a plan for you to follow (ask at the gym) and go like 4 times a week...e.g go on mon + off... thurs + fri....sat off... and just continue like that with the day off after 2 days of work out. And every 2-4 week you add more weight to it. Good luck!
