Before beginning this or any other fitness program, you should speak with your doctor or other healthcare provider to be sure it’s right for you. This is especially true if you smoke, have high cholesterol, are obese, have a history of high blood pressure or heart disease in your family, have ever experienced chest pain during physical activity or if it has occurred in the last month while you were not physically active, or if you have a bone or joint condition that could worsen with a change in physical activity. If your doctor or other health care provider recommends against beginning this fitness program, do not begin it. If at any point during exercise you feel faint, dizzy, discomfort, or shortness of breath, you should stop right away.
