Some choose sports over going to the gym but think about it, whatever it is, taking the first step is truly the hardest one and as Woody Allen would say, “80 percent of success is showing up.” You should also prepare yourself mentally before engaging in any form of exercise or sport, but always remember that it’s really not as bad as you think. So here are some steps how to get yourself into the groove and incorporate exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle and hopefully yours too.

Most importantly, when you pick a sport or activity make sure you’re really into it. It can be anything from swimming, tennis, pilates, yoga or some extreme sport, but it really helps if you’re passionate about what you’re doing.
