Three Steps to Motivate Your Spouse to Exercise: Fun and Stay Reconnecting

Step 2

Urge your spouse to get a checkup — a doctor’s word will carry more weight than yours. Have her ask the doctor what exercises are appropriate for her age, weight and fitness level.

Step 3

Reiterate your concerns if your spouse is reluctant. Say that you want to live a long life together and exercise can help tremendously in keeping him healthy and fit.
