Getting Into Fitness For The First Time...

05 July 2011 - 05:33 PM

So I was diagnosed with Celiac disease 2 years ago (at age 18) and up until that point, I suffered from extreme fatigue and abdominal pain. Needless to say, I wasn't very active throughout my childhood/teen years. I am not overweight, just a little chubby..the real issue is my lack of muscle definition and next to no core strength. I have been making huge efforts to increase my daily activity, riding my bike whenever possible, etc. but I am quite lost when it comes to working out. I don't know my physical limits, as they have never really been tested and this is quite distressing for me when I am exercising. Is this good pain? Should I stop? etc.
I cannot afford to hire a personal trainer.
Does anyone out there have any tips for me to get started? What are the best (and most low-impact) exercises to build core strength? Any examples of beginner workout routines (activity/reps)?

Any advice would be much appreciated!!!

Anyone From London, Ontario?

I live in London,Ontario and I am looking to meet some local celiacs. I have visited some restaurants that offer gluten-free alternatives and I would love to have a friend to explore local eateries with!
