I find a sport (basketball) and / or class (kickboxing). Advantages over the gym... -team mates counting on you to be there (forfeit) -meet new people who are also healthy -potential for life long sport friends -connections for fun sport events word of month (obstacle runs) you can do together -feels great to be part of a group - Pick somthing FUN and it wont feel like ur heading to a workout...more a fun social event. -stress reliever
If its not fun sign up for somthing else there are a ton of options out there...find some that are fun for you.

Every "diet" that I have ever been on has failed me in maintaining the weight loss, long-term. Therefore, when I began here on SparkPeople I committed to changing my entire lifestyle to bring about weight loss, as a result of making the choice everyday to eat healthy and exercise for life!
Now, every day I'm living the life that will ensure good health and fitness NOW and for the future. I'm not waiting for some end result with the intent to return to my old ways. I'm living in the now, enjoying every positive aspect of living a healthy lifestyle that I plan on enjoying for LIFE!
I got back on track by going on walks with my husband. We are currently in Germany and decided to give a common practice here a shot Not only has it DRASTICALLY improved our relationship and marriage. It reminded me how enjoyable exercise can be and opened the door to getting back into the gym and in a healthy lifestyle.
Therefore, whether you are just starting, getting back on track, or an old pro, try going on a liesurely walk with a loved one or close friend. It will likely bring out the positives the exercise can have on life.
