People who are not physically fit tend to be at higher risk of heart disease and chronic problems. Losing weight is not easy since it is not uncommon for obese individuals to be intimidated by personal training programs. Some exercises can be too physically uncomfortable or painful to perform for individuals carrying excess weight. Nevertheless, there are ways that overweight individuals can begin easing their way into personal training to improve their health and enjoy other fitness benefits.

Walking

Walking, jogging, climbing the stairs, and more similar physical activities have proven to be some of the most effective methods to attain a better lifestyle.1 Walking is a low-impact exercise that can be performed anywhere. Although it may not seem like much, walking can burn calories as you exert your body to move and work.

Stationary Bike

A stationary bike is an excellent way for overweight individuals to begin their fitness journey. The stationary bike has a backrest that offers support for obese individuals. Overweight people who lack a strong core often find it difficult to sit upright. Using a stationary bike can improve their blood sugar levels, heart function, and target different muscle groups of the body.2

Water Aerobics

Exercising in the water has been found to be highly beneficial for overweight and obese individuals. It is shown by a study that water power aerobics proved to be extremely effective for overweight females and improved heart and lung functions significantly. 3 As the water reduces the pressure on joints, overweight individuals find it much easier to move and train their bodies underwater.
