It would help to know a bit more about what type of goals you want to set and what type of training you lean toward. If you have a gym or plan on working out at home? Do you plan on running? Do you plan on weight training or just body weight to start with?


From what I know of fibromyalgia though it responds best to light aerobic exercise. Especially in the beginning. The first two weeks (if you haven't been doing any exercise at all) I've read it's best to start out simple with things like stretching or yoga when you wake up and things like walking or swimming. Then you can progress to like more moderate training.

Are you rehabbing the knees? It will def help to keep or build a good rehab/prehab routine.
