Expatriates might want to seek professional assistance when embarking on an exercise regime in order to minimise the likelihood of them having to make a claim on international health insurance policies.
However, Charlene Hutsebaut, exercise expert for The De-Stress Diet, explained some individuals underestimate their capabilities and can "fail before they start".
People should inform sports coaches, class instructors and personal trainers of "how much they are capable of" and what they feel they can handle, she explained.
Empathetic and educated professionals can give their students a chance to succeed, which the expert claimed can make individuals feel empowered when engaging in physical activity.
Fun, realistic and enjoyable regimes can assist men and women in feeling they are in control of their own workout, she argued, adding it is important the student understands the purpose of the exercise.
Pregnant women can also benefit from physical activity, midwife for baby charity Tommy's Jo Taylor recently said.
