the reality is, they don't. If they
haven't had much exercise over
the winter, they'll want to start
with a walking program, then
use the Stationary Life Cycles
and Rowing Machines. After that
they can get into weight-lifting
and Nautilus workouts.

"People need to differentiate
between exercise and the fun
activities. I tell people 'You need
to keep in shape for play.' That's
not to say that exercise can't be
fun, but the two are separate in
terms of body toning and
building muscles. Working out
keeps you injury-free when you
do go out and play."

and so on. But the body and
the head have to work together
to decide what it is that's going
to make you feel good."

"Getting in shape is getting in
shape, no matter what time of
year but people wear fewer
clothes in summer than in
winter. That's when they want
help — instant help. They need
to think about a combination
program of diet, aerobics and
muscle-sculpting — shaping and
defining the muscles.
"For the sedentary person just
beginning a fitness program,
low-impact, non-jumping
aerobics is best. Then he or she
can gradually move into muscle
strengthening and stretching.
But we need to concentrate on
the heart and lungs
especially after a long, quiet

"Getting in shape for spring
and summer'? I say you need to
develop an inner 'spring' so you
feel great about yourself.
Working at being fit is its own
best reward, but attitude is so
important. We look at the total
human being, and you have to
walk before you can run. A
body awareness class is good if
you can be honest enough to
look at yourself. Then you need
to ask: Is this play or is this
serious? What do I want out of a
fitness program?
"Once we start working on
fitness, without overdoing.
Walking, swimming — it has to
be something you like, because
if it isn't you won't do it. Ninety
percent of our people go on to
different types of exercises — for
muscle toning, spot reducing,

work, people begin to see the
benefits of a year-round fitness

"My warning to anyone who
hasn't stayed in shape over the
winter is to start slow. But that
doesn't mean exercising only
now and then. They could work
out daily as long as the intensity
is low. Our advice to anyone is
to stop before your body is sore,
before you become breathless,
or before you injure yourself.
People are most prone to injury
coming back from a layoff. They
have to go slow."
