Consider a health club. "Some people need a lot of variety
to stay interested in exercise," says Thompson. "That's where health clubs are
great. They always keep people's interest piqued on exercise. And if you're
paying for it, you're likely to go."
Buy or rent workout tapes or DVDs. If you prefer a quiet
start to the day, try tapes and DVDs that feature yoga, weight training, and
aerobic workout programs. Be sure to check who created them, however. "Some
programs marketed by celebrities don't have good science behind them," he
advises. "Look at the advisory board or advisor on the label. The good ones
have an exercise physiologist as an advisor."
Don't forget weekends. If you make exercise part of your
everyday lifestyle, stick with it on weekends, too. Keep treating it as an
appointment. Don't let anything interfere. "It's your protected time and
nothing else intrudes," says Foster. "You are keeping this commitment to
yourself. This is something good that you're doing for yourself."
