Learning to love exercise [news]

It may be hard to believe that someone can go from dreading exercise to dreading a day that passes without it. But that's just what happened to me. Learning to love exercise wasn't a miraculous conversion, but a gradual evolution that could happen for anyone. I'm proof. In younger years, I avoided gym classes, team sports and the outdoors. Like a lot of my friends, I just didn't want to exert myself.

But by the time I was in graduate school, I was having problems controlling my asthma. All that sitting and studying was having an impact on my weight, too. I knew the trend wasn't good.

I started to realise that I wanted not only to be lean, but also fit for the rest of my life. I wanted to be stronger and have more endurance.
