People Who Have Been Inactive
Use a sensible approach to exercise by starting out slowly.
 
Begin by choosing moderate-intensity activities you enjoy the most. By choosing activities you enjoy, you'll be more likely to stick with them
Gradually build up the time spent doing the activity by adding a few minutes every few days or so until you can comfortably perform a minimum recommended amount of activity (30 minutes per day).
As the minimum amount becomes easier, gradually increase either the length of time performing an activity or increase the intensity of the activity or both.
Vary your activities both for interest and to broaden the range of benefits.
Explore new physical activities.
