Getting started getting fit

Listen 00:48:45

Guests: Margaret Ottley, Abby Hartnett

“It’s time!  Today is the day I’m really going to do it!  I’m going to get back in shape!” How many of us have made such proclamations after months or years of neglecting your physical fitness? And while your resolve might be, at least momentarily, sincere, it can be difficult to know where to start.  Are you supposed to just get that gym membership and show up?  How do the machines work?  Do you just start running and go from there? Today on Radio Times, we talk about the baby steps to take when trying to achieve your fitness goals.  We’ll be joined by MARGARET OTTLEY,  professor in Sports Psychology at West Chester University and by ABBY HARTNETT, recreation and fitness coordinator at Jefferson University.
