There is a prominent trend in the fitness industry right now which focuses on HIGH INTENSITY workouts, big movements and powerful impact. Counter this with the slow and non-impact exercises like yoga and swimming...it may leave you wondering; "Where do I fit in"?
The appropriate intensity has everything to do with your fitness level, your place in life and your goals. For example, a woman just starting a fitness program after she became pregnant, or is newly postpartum, will have different needs than a woman 6 years postpartum who has her eyes on completing a triathlon. Take the pressure off yourself to join a fitness routine that isn't meeting you where you are. Ultimately, it is important to just start - start appropriately and then progress...it is a personal journey, make it yours.
