When I first started exercising, I was enthusiastic about it. I pushed myself really hard every day. I woke up at 5 a.m. so that I could exercise at 6. For a few months, this worked. After a while, it stopped working. Recently, I’ve been getting back on track and trying to exercise a few times a week. I realize that it is better to workout by doing something I like than to push myself doing something I hate.

Look at the list below for some tips and tricks on how to get started.
