    I'm new at this

    As it says in the title, I'm a bit of a newbie at this, and I wanted to start with exercise, maintaining my health and self esteem has become important in my life. I wanted to start with the "30 Days of HIIT" programme, so I just wanted to ask if it's ok.

    Hello, Welcome to the Hive. It's hard to know what programme would be okay for you without knowing anything about you. I guess if you have been doing some exercise, it's a good programme to do, but if you haven't done any in a while or have any injury, it might be better to start with a lower level programme. You know yourself best. Have a look at the programme, see if it's something you can stick with. It's okay to start something and then decide it's not working for you and change to something else. You say you want to start with exercise - is there something in particular you'd like to do, or that you enjoy doing? Are you looking at working on some part of you, such as core, upper body, cardio fitness? Feel free to ask for any advice - we're always happy to help. All the best for your fitness journey.

      Thanks for the warm welcome, I haven't done any exercise in a while, and I'd like to lose some weight. I'm 14 years old, and I wanted to start with something that seems effective, because to be honest I don't know anything about the world of exercise.

        In that case, perhaps you might like to start with 10, or, if you like RPGs, Zero Hero. You don't want to overdo things when you just get started. It's easy to injure yourself or just get discouraged. Start small and build up when you feel able to. If you start at the top, the only way is down. You can say that all the exercises on Darebee are effective; what you need to find are the ones that are effective for you and at this time. When I started here, I avoided push-ups because I was rubbish at them. Now I do them and sometimes even actively hunt them out. But not when I started!
        The progammes and workouts all have a filter capacity, so if there is a level that you want to do (try with level 2 or even level 1 - there is no shame in doing lower level workouts; many of them are great fun!) or a type of workout you want to do, just filter. Remember, though, to take it easy, especially in the beginning, and listen to your body. It'll tell you if something is too hard or just right. Be prepared for a bit of soreness in the beginning, but not too much and nothing that stays around for more than a couple of days. If you don't know how to do an exercise, check the video library - most exercises are there. Any you can't find, just ask.

          Welcome and you've found a good place to find out where you're at and then explore your limitless potential. Pick any program you like the look of, try it. It might kick your ass, that's great, go find a less intense program, do that. Consistency is king, it's turning up for yourself and I can guarantee your worth any and every effort you make in looking after your own wellbeing.

          Have fun.

              You'll find the Hive is a very supportive and encouraging place. We all talk about lots of different things because physical health is also dependent on mental health, and sometimes it's nice to be able to air any problems or concerns you have to a group of strangers.
              I was thinking that you might like to look at a few workouts, such as this while you're doing your homework - something to stretch you and wake you up. And remember, you don't have to do all the sets in a workout. Sometimes it's nice to do a few workouts but only one set of each. Don't feel constrained by anything. You know you best - do what feel good for you.
