Taking control of your fitness is important, but people often don't understand that getting fit might take a little planning.Exercise may be a choice which comes easily to individuals who are already fit, but can create anxiety in people who are not fit. For the fit, the rewards are immediate—the positive energy generated and endorphins released create a high that is addictive. For the unfit, exercise hurts and the pain may last for days so the feel-good endorphins are unlikely to be released at first. You need to find a way to motivate yourself.

This is a great article. The biggest reason people who start exercising, stop is because they overdo it when they start, feel like crap the next day and give up. Most people don't realise how unfit they are. If you go slowly, you will won't knock yourself out early and you will essentially get there with very little pain and lots of reward. Once you start to get fit, you are hooked.
