There are many gyms across Hull and the East Riding, from small studios to huge places to workout with all sorts of equipment. It really depends on what you want to achieve and how much you want to spend on membership.
If you are new to the gym, don't worry. You can arrange an initial meeting to discuss prices and what you want to achieve and staff will show you around to see if you like the facilities and atmosphere.
Once you have chosen your gym, an induction will be arranged to show you how everything works. A lot of gyms also have trainers and staff you can speak to about developing a workout plan.
However, gyms are not for everyone and there are certainly a lot more options.
Despite the chilly winter weather, the great outdoors is the perfect place to exercise.
You could run, walk or cycle around your local area and make the most of any winter sunshine.
Get out and about and discover the best routes in your neighbour- hood.
Not only can exercise benefit your health, it can also be a great way of meeting new people and making friends.
Classes held at sports centres, gyms and community centres can be a fun way to work out and also meet people. You could even go along with your friends if you are feeling a bit apprehensive.
From yoga and pilates to more energetic classes such as spinning or Zumba, there are so many things to choose from.
If you want to lose a few pounds before you start a new fitness regime, start by looking at what you eat.
There are plenty of slimming clubs around that can offer you an eating plan to kick-start your weight-loss.
You should try to include at least five portions of fruit or veg a day into your diet, as well as cutting down on alcohol.
Another way to make exercising easier is to stop smoking. Not only is this beneficial to your overall health but it will save you some pennies, too, meaning you can afford that gym membership.
