Share the exercise tips and workout ideas that have worked for you.
I discovered a self-walking tour book at the library for areas within driving distances from where I live. By spending my weekends on these tours, it makes exercising fun as I follow the history and paths of these tours.
Everyone needs to start small - even the small steps lead to routines....
When taking a class, don't stop if you can't do the full version workout...just do the modified version and keep going back. You'll be amazed at what you can build up to if you just keep trying. Persistence pays off.
Pack a gym bag and put it in your car. Go to the gym on your way home. No excuses! If the gear is in your car you are more likely to get that workout in.

When I circuit train, I do one minute of high intensity cardio (burpees, jump squats, etc) after I complete a circuit to pump up my heart rate. It makes my work-out go faster and I feel much more energized for the rest of the day!
Set yourself up with some goals. What do you want to achieve? It could be # of minutes per week or # of miles in a month. The desire increases-I have to get out there and work on it.
I warm-up for my runs by dancing around the house to my favorite songs. I try to shake my whole body to get everything nice and loose. But, I go easy at first! This is the best way to get pumped up and loose!
Ever felt bored with your work out? Well I have. I used to never know what to do until I typed work out into the youtube search line. There are hundreds of different things there to try out. Most are only 10 minutes long but 3 times 10 minutes is 30. And it's a tone of fun too!
