Put a Little Groove in Your Daily Movement

By Stephen R. Farris

It can be tough trying to figure out which route you want to start from when it comes to getting back into shape. 

Let's face it, the internet and television market is saturated with all kinds of exercise videos and infomercials. It makes choosing the right one almost an impossibility, to the point you might consider giving up on the idea before you get started. So what do you do?

The first plan of action towards your fitness goals is to go see your primary physician or chiropractor, so they can let you know if you're healthy enough to begin an exercise routine. They can also check to make sure there are no hidden health problems that prevent you from starting. 

After consulting with your doctor or chiropractor, ask them for advice on which types of exercises you should start off with. They can provide you with tips and suggestions in a couple of areas, both in exercising and eating healthy.

The key is to start slowly, then build your way up. Set realistic goals. You might start out with a few of these simple exercises that can get your blood pumping in a healthy manner.


Yoga offers several types of poses that not only help stretch you out to give you more flexibility, but can also help strengthen and tone your muscles. Yoga is designed as a full-body workout with different levels, from beginner to eventually teaching your own class if you desire. 


Swimming is a great way to build up endurance and develop good breathing technique. Swimming provides cardio and resistance training that is easy on your joints. You can treat swimming like other types of exercises. For instance, you can swim laps one day, walk in the shallow end for 15 to 30 minutes the next day, and do the same thing as day 2 , except you'd use a running motion instead. And for a shorter period, maybe 5 to 10 minutes if you're up to it.


Some folks might not agree, but dancing is a great form of exercise that a lot of people don't think about when it comes to getting in shape. You can choose your starting point, going slow or fast. Dancing can give you a cardio workout, as well as tone and strengthen your leg muscles and work your core.

There may come a time when the aches and pains from yoga, swimming, and dancing are felt in your back, neck, and joints. When that happens, visit your local chiropractor such as the one's found at The Joint Chiropractic.

Chiropractic treatment is an all-natural, noninvasive, non-addictive way to get the relief you need and deserve.
