Hey. So I've figured out that while I would like to get into better shape, I suck at motivating to do classes, go to the gym, etc. And I can't afford a personal trainer at the moment -- I wish I could! I do use my Wii Fit, but that only does so much.
What I do like is playing team sports -- or at least, I remember liking it in high school. I think it's the competitive element that helps keep me motivated; also the team aspect of not wanting to let others down by not showing up. So I'm looking for suggestions on local sports that I could play this spring / summer? I don't mind paying a small fee for use of space or some such, but I don't want to spend a lot of money -- at least not until I know that I like it and will keep up with it. I am 5'0", 170 lbs., almost 39 years old, and totally out-of-shape, so please keep that in mind when making suggestions. :-) Basketball, for example, is unlikely to work well for me, unless the rest of the team doesn't mind my never being able to make a basket.
I'm also totally willing to help organize something -- tennis or soccer or frisbee in the park or some such? So drop me a line if you're interested in hearing more about team sport possibilities. I'll collect the info I get and send it along.
