Don’t join a gym, just move
Motivation is something that's also challenging as you get older. But if you watch your calories, go to bed a little bit hungry, stay hydrated and drink tons of water, it can become more of a maintenance thing. And you don't have to join a fancy gym or higher and expensive trainer. Movement is what it is all about. Stick with the basics and build from there.
It’s the little things
I often hear people say time is an issue. As the day gets longer everyone gets busier, so I recommend getting your workouts done first thing in the morning. And remember something is way better than nothing. Look at your day as a set of challenges and a chance to make little deposits in the fitness bank along the way. From parking your car farther away from work and opting to walk and take the stairs instead of escalators and elevators. Start with walking and then throw a set of squats in every two minutes. Every other set throw in a set of push-ups and alternate between push-ups and squats in between 2 to 3 minutes of walking. And if you're a single guy like myself, finding a nice local park or going down to the beach is a great way to get in your exercise and perhaps meet someone who has a similar interest. That's always a great place to start.
