As a bonus you save money and feel happier.

I've never been a fan of exercise either and with this and a couple of games of futsal (mad keen football player) I manage around 12 hours exercise a week while enjoying all of it.
Not a bad idea. I do ride to work sometimes, but I am rarely in the office. Need to update the bicycle too. I find a racer not great for city commuting.

Ha ha. Add that to the injury list. Dislocated a shoulder on a shore dumper a couple of years ago.

Do whatever you can sustain and make a habit, so you don't have to motivate yourself to do it.

I walk. A lot. I skip train stations on my commute in and out for fun.

I'm captain of the annual GCC (pedometer) company team, it's good to do things in groups.

Motivating and sustaining is the issue here. I kind of feel I need either, a) an addictive team sport. b) exercise I buy and which enforces a regular turn out.

Nope, that's beyond my daily range.

I think the number of lapsed gym memberships probably points to a)!

Yep. Only use for a gym is for pumping iron and I don't pump iron. I also have a gym at the Sydney Football Stadium where I occasionally swim in the pool and play a spot of tennis.

I bought myself a Hobie Kayak. It's a pedal kayak that gives me a leg workout & when they get a bit tired I sit & fish for a while. The fish is good for you so it's a win win. Workout + fresh fish for dinner. I paddle it as well for an upper body workout. I don't lose much weight but I drink a lot more beer while I'm fishing lol.

Yep! Loads of Hobie fishing comps, unfortunately there's not much exercise in the fishing part, just drinking beer for me lol.
