no worries – we have a two heuristics:
First – meet the move where you are – that’s all. wherever you are is fantastic
Second – no pain, no pain.
Pain is a great guide – don’t move into it (don’t work to find it either).

That said: please check the Small Print in the next section to make sure you feel good to go.

- Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee or hip) that could be made worse by a
change in your physical activity?
- Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?

Tell your doctor about the which questions you answered YES. You may be able to do any activity you want — as long as you start slowly and build up gradually. Or, you may need to restrict your activities to
those which are safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds
