    I need to lose some fat on my abs, and start doing cardio shit, so yeah sure. I've been dreading those areas, so someone to work with will make it fun enough to be bearable.

    alright, im currently working on a blog that basically has every types profile and a workout that best suits them. and a diet. for the ENFP i literally didn't give a full profile. i didn't write out a specific workout that is. for the ENFP i basically said: an ENFP can either stick to a traditional workout or... do something that masks working out, to make it more interesting. i have the example of marital arts. it is fun, and different and always changing. there is also a value system to it and such (i dont feel like explaining that lol). it is challenging but not competitive. it is a phenomenal workout too. it builds confidence, and on a side note, the ladies like a man that can defend himself . also i like a lady that isn't prissy anyhoo... that was a horrible example but im slightly busy so its gonna be slightly crappy. dancing would be another example. anything that masks the workout. now i do a traditional 4 day bodybuilding routine and im fine with it, but i know alot of ENFPs that really like martial arts and dancing who are also in great shape. so try something that isn't your traditional workout that masks the actual workout. hope this helps

    sorry for the half assed write up

    If you're an ENFP you will probably suffer from muscle tension if you don't get excercise.

    no. not necessarily. and i get muscle tension/aching from working out so if that point was true then im screwed lol. some ENFPs can get muscle tension from sensory overload and also from personal conflict on a daily basis.

    I feel like I always have an abundance of energy, fitness (read: something to tire me out) is crucial for me to sort of my feelings and thoughts to behave in a *normal* way. When I'm low on energy, it fires me up. Basically, I highly recommend it to any ENFP who is looking for balance.

    I mostly run, starting is always the most difficult part. I focus on a past run or experience outside that jazzed me up to motivate me to get my butt outside. I find weights fantastic for grounding me after an emotionally charged day.

    For two or three weeks this works out wonderfully, then I get bored....

    Two words: SURPRISE YOURSELF WITH SOMETHING NEW

    I have a schedule that I alter biweekly, adding in more dancing, more skip-rope, boxing, swimming, rowing...... until i get bored and go back to running. I have an amazing gym pass that gives me access to every kind of equipment I have ever dreamed of, but for runners out there, give a constant change to your run route a try. Treadmills are repetitive and you end up in the same place you started every single time. A new route interrupted with some surprise elements like sit-ups, hill runs or planks will keep you thinking of new ways (it's a P thing) to challenge yourself (mentally and physically)

    Try goal setting too, maybe not for certain events at first but for benchmarks of ability. Example: I want to be able to climb up all 4 flights of stairs at work without getting winded, or, I want to stay energetic all day without being burned out after giving so much attention and enfp-ness to people around me.

    I live for challenge, it's like a giant sign that says "Bet you can't" that is just begging to be climbed or torn down. I think this is the main factor to why I can run long-distance and focus for 10-35km on running without chasing squirrels or something relevant. PLUS!! It feels really really good. Happy fitness-ing!

    yeah I hate structured or traditional exercise. I have to trick myself into working out, like dancing or I can walk/run if it's pretty outside and I have music and I can daydream...that way I don't realize how far I've gone. :-)

    I like yoga too, it helps with toning, balance and flexibility especially since I hate weights. And it's fun.

    I do no exercise then lots. But I'd be on the addicted side most of the time.

    I find the most motivating thing for me is playing a sport that is fun, or just randomly joining games of sport rather than playing for an official team. I've never been to the gym, I've intended to lots though . I'm huge on core strength and stability work like sit ups and stuff and will go them still when not playing any sport. With sport I play ice hockey which is always fun, you don't even think about getting tired till you collapse at the end. I had problems at the start with smashing people, and I still apologise occasionally if it's not a clean check , but I actually enjoy the challenge of being in the corner fighting for the puck, and love skating cos it has the coolest feeling and you move so quickly. It's like the world is running at your speed and you are no longer an ENFP who is stuck in second gear waiting for everything to catch up.

    So yeh, go for what interests you. Like if you see something and think damn I'd love to do that, do it. As an ENFP it will be more productive than planning runs or gym sessions.
