A "higher level of fitness" is kind of ambiguous, but I guess if you're shooting for better endurance such that you do not "find most exercises exhausting and unenjoyable", that's something to shoot for. Maybe it's even something you'll be able to maintain with only a few hours/week; I was thinking that a particularly high level of fitness would require rather more than that. However, I might propose that if you plan to be able to exercise without being exhausted afterwards, you would not be exercising properly.MogTM wrote:Specifically, in the seven weeks I have free I would like to get into good enough shape to accomplish three goals: First, to attain a higher level of fitness; Second, to be in good enough shape that I can maintain that high level of fitness with only a few hours/week (little enough time that I can fit fitness into an extremely busy work schedule after the 7 weeks are up.) And third, to be fit enough that I can exercise without hating it/being exhausted by the end of the workout -- practically speaking, that seems to be the only way am likely to maintain a fitness schedule.
You kind of lost me there. If you have limited willpower now, do you think you will have sufficient willpower afterwards to make drastic changes to your life in the sense of committing a few hours to fitness out of your busy schedule?(Keep in mind that I have limited knowledge and even more limited willpower so "stay at home and work out until in good shape" is not a realistic suggestion without details on what to do and how to motivate myself to do it.)
Two hours!? That's a really long class, unless it's a martial art of some sort. I suggest group aerobics; usually those last an hour at most, and it can be a pretty intense hour, at that.MogTM wrote:And the options at most gyms seem to be more along the lines of "work with a trainer for an hour" or "go to a two hour class;"
