I struggle to do a routing exercise just for the sake of exercise. If it isn't fun I have a tough time doing it. I used to be more active when I was younger BMX, Rollerblading, swimming etc. I need to find something fun to do that I will stick with that will help me get back in shape. Video tapes, going to the GYM just would not work for me very long. I would love to get swimming regularly but I do not have a local pool. I am not a lazy person I just have a hard time following through something that I am no passionate about. Any suggestions?

You could always try the CrossFit thing. I've heard that keeps it quite fresh and seems perfect for someone with your mindset.

I really like the idea of crossfit, but I don't have money for memeberships and I have basically no workout equipment and oh ya I hate working out to work out. Maybe I should just give up Forget college take a job digging ditches. Afterall it would provide money and fitness and I am good at it.

You don't even have to do all crossfit, but try more interesting exercises - standing milpress, overhead snatches, etc.. Challenge the fuck out of yourself - you know, can i do 100 pushups in X minutes, how many pushups in a row, etc..

I pretty much do 50% heavy weights and 50% interesting shit that makes me faster, fitter, stronger, etc..

What about parkour/free-running? That would involve a lot of muscle groups. It also gives you an excuse to hang out in industrial parks.

How many excuses is that in one post? Just get off your ass and move it. It's really not that hard.
