    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.
    Yeah that's a good idea. I need to start making some friends at my gym!

    i recently stopped doing treadmill & running workouts, and switched to playing pickup basketball and football. i saw two immediate benefits: a) lost more bodyfat because high-intensity workouts are better at zapping fat than endurance workouts and b) felt more fufilled because i was having a good time with other people.

    enfp's need to do things with others to stay motivated. you can also do some kickboxing or join a volleyball league. leave the treadmill workouts to the introverts.

    I've never been able to do it. I can walk, but its sporadic at best. Besides work and raids, scheduled ANYTHING doesn't work for me. Luckily I don't have a weight issue - yet. That may change at 35 then Ill be breaking my neck to get to a gym....

    Sport works best for me. I play sport 3 or 4 days a week. I don't do gym ever. Maybe push ups, sit ups, chin ups, etc. as a morning routine when I need to be a bit more fit. Go for runs occasionally when I'm training or not getting exercise any other way.

    Find a sport that feels addictive for you. I find team sports with a bit of action and tactics are good. I'm not sure it's type related though.

    do 20 minutes, and then do 20 minutes again.
