  42. Hi Gina,

    Someday I look forward to trying your shape up challenges. I’m not at a good fitness level yet to feel safe trying them. I wonder if you could develop a fitness routine for those of us who are obese but trying to get there?

    • Fitnessista says:

      i definitely want to create a plan just for beginners. maybe i can have it up and ready to go this summer! for this shape up, i’d recommend focusing on healthy eating and building a cardio base (working up to 30 minutes steady state).
