Easy goals to set …
Do something active for 20 to 30 minutes a day, whether it’s morning or night, whether it’s walking or swimming or jogging. It’s not the longest amount of time to work out, but anyone can do something for 20 to 30 minutes—we spend it on Instagram already.

Tips on getting in shape …
You definitely have to change nutrition, that’s the biggest thing—nutrition is 90 percent of achieving your goals. With adults, (I say cut down on) carbs, sugar, and alcohol. People typically say they consume alcohol four to five days a week, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but those days add up. Alcohol is empty calories, meaning there’s no nutritional value.

Tips for working out at home …
Look for some type of product or equipment that is versatile and allows you to do multiple exercises and movements, like resistance bands. That way you don’t plateau on doing the same movements every time you work out.
