I joined a gym once, years ago, went a few times but found it smelly and uncomfortable. I bought a treadmill at a yard sale down the block. I actually pushed it to my house, about 500 feet away. That was the last time I used it.
I took a Yoga class at the local elementary school. Went twice, pulled a stomach muscle and spent the next 6 weeks skipping class and going to the library across the street.
I even tried meditation. Searching for that Inner Light I always hear about. I would play Enya music and just try to relax. I fell asleep. Not sure if that counts as meditating.
Apparently you need a mantra. Something to blank your mind and keep you focused. What would a middle-aged man’s mantra be? Ommmm do not drive or operate heavy machinery ommmmmm if you had heart failure or experience diarrhea, constipation, swollen feet, burning during urination, ommmm decreased sexual activity, suicidal thoughts, feelings of hopelessness, ohmmmmm muscle aches, nausea, consult your doctor Om Mani Padme Hum (that’s the name of my doctor.)
