I need to get more exercise. I've tried joining gyms on several occasions, but after the first month or so I always find myself making excuses to not go. I suspect that if I hired a personal trainer and made regular appointments with him/her, I would keep those appointments. I don't think I'd enjoy the exercise any more than in the past, but I think the feeling that I was wasting somebody else's time and even more of my own money would be a pretty good motivator.

The other motivator would be finding a fun way to exercise that I can do on a regular basis. Just about the only type of exercise I enjoy is walking around a place with interesting things and people to look at. NYC is great for that. I've learned that as long as I have decent shoes I can walk around The City for 8 hours and not only not be bored, but I won't even feel any aches or pains until I stop moving. (Of course, once I do stop moving I feel like a train hit me.)

This has me wanting to do a cost comparison between joining a gym & and hiring a trainer VS going down to NYC every weekend. I'd have to include gas, train tickets, food for the day, and probably one or two other things I'm not thinking of now.

Thoughts?
