I am a pretty active person. I have a home gym, in the bonus room, above the garage ,with the typical treadmill, weight bench, heavy bag, free weights, etc. I work out at least 4-5 days per week, combination of cardio and/or strength training. I have tried to get my wife to join me. But, she refuses. She suffers from ruptured disks in her lower back and is a smoker. I keep trying to tell her that if she does not get started soon it will be much tougher down the road. I have tried all sorts of methods in order to encourage her to get started with both cardio and weight training to strengthen her core and back, but alas, none have been successful. Aside from the health benefits of increased energy, which she lacks and overall better health. I would just enjoy spending that time together.
Does anyone have any suggestions???
I would love to hear from anyone that was faced with this same situation and hear if you were successful in getting your spouse or significant other to participate with you in a fitness regime.
