Welcome to Skimble :)

We have 3 different workout intensities, labeled 'casual', 'moderate', and 'intense'. Start out with the shorter casual workouts, and always keep your exercise within your own comfort zone. Over time you will build your strength and cardio endurance. Make sure you always drink plenty of water also. Your blood travels throughout your body better if we are properly hydrated. This puts less stress on your cardiovascular system.
