It’s hard to start. We convince ourselves that before we can start, we must be someplace else. Somewhere more flexible, somewhere stronger, or with a different body type or fewer injuries. Somewhere with more time, more space, and fewer distractions. But the only way to get anywhere is to start from where we are now and take it one step at a time. When it comes to fitness, there are ways to make beginning easier. Start with shorter class, learn the basics. Embrace modifications. Just start moving from where you are today.
