If you want an exercise program that really works, try the FITT Principle. 

Frequency: How often will you exercise? Three to five times a week is a good start (with your doctor's OK)! 

Intensity: How hard will you work? For weight loss, high intensity is ideal, but you can reap the mental/physical health benefits of exercise even at lower intensities. 

Type: What type of activity will you do? Cardio? Weight training? Flexibility? Good programs incorporate all three. 

Time: Even 20 minutes a day works.
