Here at the Fitness Stack Exchange, we believe that exercise and proper nutrition is vital for a healthy lifestyle. Even though some of us are enthusiastic about staying fit, we realize that not everyone has an idea of what to do or where to start. So to help everyone who has made a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight or get started with exercise and healthy living, we have devised a Fitness 101 series to offer tips and resources.
Fitness 101 is not a full-fledged fitness program or exercise regimen; it is a starting point and guide for people to venture on their own paths. We want people to pursue their own goals, stay active, and hopefully learn more about themselves. The Fitness 101 series and our Fitness & Nutrition Q&A site will be great resources for people doing that. We welcome and encourage everyone to visit our site and ask whatever questions they have about fitness, and we as a community will do our best to give you good advice.
If you find yourself asking questions such as:
- What kind of exercise should I start with?
- How does fitness and exercise affect my diet? Does it matter what I eat?
- What is the ideal nutrient breakdown for my body type and goals?
- I am overweight. What should I do?
- How often should I exercise?
then Fitness 101 is for you. One important aspect to take away from Fitness 101 is to simply start moving. It is the single best best thing to do for your health as stated by Dr. Mike Evans.
The inception of this series will eventually segue to other topics. We have ideas and plans for the direction of the series, but we also want to hear what you would like to see in the future.
Achieving a healthy, active life is not something that happens overnight. It takes time, patience, perseverance, and hard work. Fitness is a long-term and continuous process. Every journey begins with a single step, and we are here to help.
