How to Stick With an Exercise Program

  • Exercise for yourself, not someone else. Your motivation must come from within.

  • Don't do too much, too soon. Set realistic goals. Start with a low-intensity, balanced program that you perform three days a week.

  • Make exercise convenient. Exercise close to work or home.

  • Work out with family or friends. You'll be less prone to skip your workouts.

  • Choose enjoyable, varied activities that you can alternate throughout the week.

  • Challenge yourself. Compete with yourself to attain your own personal best.

  • Reward yourself. Give yourself a non-food treat -- such as a day of pampering or tickets to a professional ball game for achieving a goal.
