    Are you going to a gym? Try a class - it feels rude to get up and leave early, especially if you're in the front.
    Try cardio outside, so you actually go somewhere when you move, haha. Ride a bike for 20 minutes, and well, then you have to ride back for 20 minutes to get home
    And I agree - do stuff you like.

    I join classes a lot. The entroversion of working with others, and the motivation of having to go so you don't: disappoint people, get a bad grade, etc.. keeps you attending. Once you're already there, the class will keep your attention the entire block of instruction.

    Colleges aren't too expensive for CE programs, and you can get financial aid too so you can get paid to go work out even if you were going to anyways

    Yeah. I do theater and dance. That helps. When I'm not in a show though, I am completely sedentary.

    Too bad we can't be fit and in shape by talking.

    I agree!! I wish i had friends who went to my gym so we could work out together and just catch up!

    Is this common in ENFPs... if I am working out next to someone (regardless of how fit they are, even especially if they are total strangers) I get competitive with them. If they're jogging at 6.5 I have to bump it to 7. If their resistance is set at 5 I have to move mine to 6. This can't be healthy... anyone know why I do this?

    Ice skate/play hockey with your friends! That's pretty ENFP. You get to socialize and you don't have the humdrum tedium of workout machines!

    And yes, I compete with strangers/friends at the gym because my internal motivation just isn't there :P

    Isn't it crazy expensive to rent ice in the southern US though? Even in Canada, where there are a lot of rinks, it's expensive to play hockey.

    Haha, yes I compete with everyone too. It's probably my biggest motivation factor.

    I don't like organized sports.

    I am extremely active, though, which is completely ironic. I do run track.

    I just started working out this fall, now that school has started. We have free unsupervised access to our school's fitness center every gym class, which I have taken advantage of, and worked out for the 45 minutes I have.

    I do less and less cardio, running, and biking these days. I have shifted to actually working out. They have a stereo in the fitness center, and the other guys usually play classic rock stations, which I like, so it works out.

    But I can't work out when I have friends around. I get side tracked too easily.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    i train with my team-mates. so i can't stop running half-way even if i wanted to, because they won't let me. picture nagging and dragging.
    maybe training with SJs and SPs might help. SJs because the idea of quitting shocks them. and SPs keep cajoling/poking me to go even further.
    when i was a kid, i kept swimming by imagining that sharks were chasing me that's how you spot the Ne's.
    ain't over till it's over.
