3 Make exercise enjoyable Group fitness classes (YMCA, Adventure 212, Wellness Spa, Curves) Do something you love to do such as bowling, swimming, or biking Try Wii Fit or other active video games At home fitness video or fitness channel on TV

4 Stay with exercise Why some people quit… Boredom Don’t know what they are doing Pain/Soreness Lack of Variety Discouraged What to do… Get a personal trainer Try something new Different training type Continue to go Bring a friend

5 Ask for help Any fitness facility has trainers who would love to help you out Seek out a professional Ask your friends, co-workers, or family members Mention it to your doctor

6 Train as a family Family workouts Fitness facilities with day care Exercise videos Location based fitness Shopping Water parks Exercise video games Good old fashion ways Frisbee Baseball Basketball

7 See a doctor When: Soreness lingers for more then 4 days You are having difficulty walking, sleeping, or doing daily activities Pain is not getting better Why: Serious problems can develop very quickly is an injury is not treated properly The sooner you are treated, the sooner you can get back to 100% Also… Avoid exercise pain by starting slow and gradually easing back into exercise See a personal trainer to ensure you’re performing exercises correctly

8 Get serious Plan exercise into your schedule Keep your “exercise” appointment 60 minutes a day (break up into four 15 min segments if you have to) Use every trick in the book to get a few more minutes of exercise each day Park your car farther from the door Take the stairs whenever possible Walk or bike instead of driving Remember: Exercise will give you more energy
