    I would recommend something fun to keep you motivated, maybe just a scheduled basketball, racquetball, or other social sport to keep you motivated.

    If you just want a routine, I think a 30 minute-ish circuit would get the job done. One circuit would be about 9-10 minutes with a minute rest, repeat up to 3 times, with progress, up to 5 times. Look online at various circuits and piece together one that sounds fun.

    Making a rountine can be difficult and you may not see results. I would suggest a workout program. This way you'll know what to do.

    I think the main thing to do is find out what you would enjoy.  Setting up a running workout routine won't help if you don't like running.  Also, what are your goals?  Are you trying to be healthy?  Do you just want to look good in swimsuit?  Are you competing in something?

    I have friends who just want to get big.  That would just be a muscle building workout with cardio being intervals.  Then I have friends who only want to run in races.  So there would be a bigger focus on cardio with some resistance workouts to keep muscle tone up.

    To actually build a workout, Google is your friend.  See what the different programs are out there.  Then be like Bruce Lee.  Keep what works/fits, and throw out the rest.  After many many years of working out, I have settled into a 2-3 day running program with 1-3 days of body-weight exercises.  I've done P90x, I've tried muscle building programs, I've tried heavy lifting at gyms, I've tried free weights at home.  Keep experimenting and learning and really just weed out what won't work for you (or even just what won't fit in your lifestyle.

    Just remember one thing.  You don't have to get to where you want to be overnight.  With tv shows like Biggest Loser, or Extreme weight loss stuff, people forget that it's a healthy lifestyle we're trying to achieve and KEEP for life.  Who cares if it takes you two years versus 90 days?

    Create your workout routine based on your fitness/athletic goals and your time frame. For instance, you may want to lose 50 lbs. in 6 months for a wedding and reveal/build some muscle in the process. Perhaps you want to pack on 5 pounds of muscle and get shredded, or run a marathon. Whatever it is, define it clearly. Write it down.

    Next, depending on your level of fitness and nutrition knowledge, start learning or hire an expert (personal trainer, coach, nutritionist, whatever works for your goal.)

    If you don't want to hire someone, you could find a good resource on the internet, but find some good books as well, the internet can be a bottomless pit of sketchy advice. If you have little to no knowledge, what your are looking for is:

    -Sensible advice on workout frequency for your age (how many times a week?)
    -Workout progressions with your experience level in mind. (i.e. How many sets/reps/intervals/miles/minutes, etc., and when to increase weight/mileage and so on.)
    -Easy to follow nutrition advice that doesn't promote anything.

    Whatever you do, start slowly. Do less than you think you can at first and always, always, always warm up. Most importantly, start a workout routine and never stop.

    Cheers, Mo
