Set your personal goals
What is your motivation to exercise? Do you want to lose weight, build muscle, tone your body or just improve your overall health status? Whatever your motivation, it can be helpful to set goals for yourself. This will help you better plan your workout regime based on the improvements you would like to experience.
Your spa exercise regime
Your training regime should be created based on your goals. To get you started, here are some exercises you may want to do:
- Standing hamstring stretch
- Standing quad stretch
- Lunging hip flexor stretch
- Triceps stretching
- Extending knee to chest
- Butterfly stretching
- Seated shoulder squeeze
- Seated neck release
- Jogging in place
- Jumping jacks

- Push-ups on the wall
- Arm circles

Below is a basic spa training regimen that can help you get started:
- Start with 5-10 minutes of light cardiovascular activity
- Do 5-10 minutes of dynamic stretching
- Choose a muscle group area to work on and complete 3 exercises (3 sets of 10 repetitions)
- Participate in cardiovascular activity for 15-30 minutes
- Finish with 5-10 minutes of static stretching and then relax in your spa as part of the cooldown
Before starting any exercise regime, it is highly recommended that you speak with your doctor first to ensure your best health.
Track your results
Measure your success by tracking your results. This can help you figure out what is and isn't working so you can make the necessary adjustments to reach your health and wellness goals. You may want to track your success by weighing yourself, taking pictures, measuring your body, keeping a journal or meeting with a health care provider regularly.
Keep in mind that you can achieve several non-scale victories. These include reducing a clothing size, not getting out of breath when climbing stairs or being able to sit more comfortably in a chair.
