Get invested in it: Studies show that people are more committed to habits when they have spent money or are invested in them. There's an app that rewards you for gym visits, and slightly penalizes you if you don't make your fitness goals. Exercise also shouldn't be boring: listening to motivating music or lightly interesting podcasts can increase your enjoyment. Or check out a new sport you really love.
