After you've decided to start getting more fit and healthy, the next step usually involves looking for workout plans. There are many on the Internet, but often they cost money.
When you are just starting, narrow down exactly what you want, and pick plans that are free. Whether it is being able to run a 5K or bench 100 pounds, it's likely that having your goals broken down into smaller steps, or targets, will make them a lot easier to achieve in the long-run. In reality, if you stick to any reasonable workout plan, you will benefit just by being active.
Most important, make exercising fun! Not only will you be more active, but you will also want to keep up with the plan and achieve your goal.
