      Do you find any and every excuse not to exercise? Would you rather do anything else - even sort your socks or clean the oven? Here are a few ways to get you going - and keep you going.  

      Call it by another name. Substitute any aerobically challenging household activity for the standard exercise routine. If it's something you have to do anyway - like washing the car or planting some bushes in the yard - you'll meet two goals at once.
      Do it to music. Sign up for classes in swing dancing—or flamenco, folk, or clog dance. All provide a terrific workout and a lot of fun. Or listen to music while you work out; your favorite tunes make the time go faster.
      Be a bookworm. Listen to the latest mystery or suspense novel on tape while you exercise. If the book’s a page-turner, you’ll look forward to that next session to hear the next plot twist.
      Don’t sweat it. If a damp T-shirt is not your idea of a good time, try gentler forms of exercise such as yoga, tai chi, or ballet-based flexibility classes, offered at many gyms.
      Partner up. Exercise is more fun when you do it with a friend. And on days when your motivation is low, you‘re more likely to stick with the program to avoid disappointing your exercise buddy.
      Find an electronic coach. Visit our fitness message board and find a buddy to cheer you on to your next fitness goal.
      Train with an expert. It’s an expense, to be sure, but a personal trainer will help you set goals, design a personalized fitness program, and vary your routine to keep it challenging.
      Join a club. Make fitness part of your social routine by joining a running, walking, hiking, biking, or tennis club.
