Apologies its an old cliche - irrespective of the New Year looming, I have been giving this some thought for months! A genuine question and inspiration on ideas to get fitter? A bit of background, I am 43, fairly slim but unfit! Waist is currently 33". Commuter so time will be limited. The last time I did genuine exercise (Paintball) muscle ache was a wake up call! Diet could be improved but a none carb/alcohol diet will not happen at this point in time. The thought of joining a Gym fills me with dread, so looking at alternatives? Really start with something nondescript like jogging/walking? Swimming Martial arts (might be a tad ambitious) to build confidence and work all the muscles point, only the thought of joining a club which is made up of 10-14 year old Bruce Lee's... or way out of my depth. Bite the bullet and invest in a personal trainer (this would force me to get out). I tried cycling - I do enjoy, however I gave my last bike away (same with weights) - so would rather avoid ending up in the same scenario.
