    this is so true - by LCRUMLEY81
  • I totally agree with this, but for a lot of folks it's hard to find ANY exercise you love!

    In my own experience, the music I listen to helps me a LOT - I try to find a piece of music or a particular band that I love listening to and then, I can focus on my enjoyment of that piece of music while I am doing that one-legged squat I HATE (or whatever your own personal exercise nemesis may be!)

    Whatever works for ya!!!! - by NO1BUTGAZ
    This is true. When I am doing an exercise that I don't like I tend to give up. - by LOSE4LIFE47
