    -Dancing
    -Sex
    -Horsing around with little kids (hopefully in a way not related to either option listed so far)
    -Nature hiking
    -Rock climbing (I think there's an indoor rock climbing place around Stewart & Denny, you could check it out).
    -Martial arts (definitely check out Krav Maga, there's a training place in Bellevue on NE 20th St between 132nd and 136th -- I used to pass by it on my way to work).

    I second the dancing suggestion. My favorite thing and I find it easiest to stick to because changing the music/tempo lends variety, keeps it fresh.

    Also, I lost a bunch of weight learning bellydancing techniques. I didn't go to a class, I just got a couple of books and got some sexy Middle Eastern choons. Since I did it at my own pace in my own living room, I just had so much fun with it. You should try!

    Try enough sports until you find one you like. If none of your friends are active at all, there should be many clubs in your city who accept individual players - which can also be a way to meet new people.

    My favourites are soccer, volleyball (which isn't super active, but maybe better than walking and awesome) and squash.

    others:

    recreational cycling clubs
    swimming
    tennis
    badminton
    basketball
    dancing
    martial arts
    hiking
    pilates/yoga/fitness classes
    jogging ( but I guess it can be good for you)

    I feel you though, I've literally never been to a gym even though I had free membership in undergrad....the thought of staring into space doing the same thing over and over again...bleh. I should probably work out with some free weights at home though so I'm not so pathetically weak, lol.

    Good suggestions so far.

    Did you catch the thread about Zumba? I just started going to a Zumba class and I've never had so much fun working so hard. I definitely recommend it if dancing at all appeals to you.

    Here's a great article about fun and physical activity, including examples of fun activity from the author and her readers (the rest of this site is awesome too; definitely worth checking out if you want fitness info):
    The Play`s the Thing

    If you still plan on going to the gym, there are ways to make it less tedious. Listening to music that makes you want to move can really make time in the gym go faster. If you do classes, the instructor can make all the difference. I know an instructor that makes step aerobics fun and engaging. With a different instructor, they're often a drag. And if you're doing a lot of time on cardio machines, I've found doing intense and gentle intervals makes the time go faster than just going at the same pace for twenty or thirty minutes.

    Celery eating
    The calories burnt from you eating the celery is more than the calories in the celery itself.

    I don't think this works if you eat celery the way I like to eat celery: stuffed with peanut butter and raisins.
