How do I train to start running and getting fit?

I am over weight and I smoke!!! I was going to the gym a couple of months ago 4/5times a week walking on the treadmill and swimming. Unfortunately I moved area and jobs and lost my motivation. i desperately want to start again and stop smoking but I just don’t know where to start this time. I also want to train to start running so it has more benefits when I do start.

Can anyone help me get the motivation and tell me how to increase my fitness levels?

    Find a running partner to keep each other motivated to run start off walk/joggin with your partner talk about how the day went this will take focus off everyday problems do 100 abs a day your self confidence and apperance will look great after you do so goodluck! it may not feel worth it now but in the long run ull be glad u made the choice to go healty!!!

    The smoking thing should stop, it will help you if you do wanna run. To start out, you should start walking a mile or two a day. Listen to music so you don’t get too bored. Start out with doing that and just being active for a while. Once you think you would feel comfortable jogging half of your walk start that, jog the first half and walk the rest. Eventually you should jog the entire workout. I agree with the previous answer, if you have someone to run with it makes it so much easier. Every other night, do crunches ( as many as you think you can do 100-150 should be good). You can even do these when you watch tv or when you’re lying in bed. Hope this helps you get started!

    yea, like everyone else, i suggest you cut down on your smoking. as for running, 2 months ago i was couch potato, and during my hols i decided to start running. i looked up some training programs online and started following two of them. i like’s couch to 5k plan. u can give it a shot i think. i can run 4kms easily now without stopping… its good 🙂
    just google for running plans, you’ll get loads of options, then pick the one u like best. the couch to 5k program has a lot of testimonials vouching for it, and ive seen first hand that it works!
    go for it 🙂

I finallt quite smoking just havent reached the point of getting off the couch….. i really want to be able to run the 10k that our town has every sept…. i know i couldn’t do right now but i wanna run so bad i just have no motovation…. awhile back when i did run i started off slow… start at trying to run for 4-5 minutes and slowly work your way up!

    Just about all of the things you assert happens to be supprisingly legitimate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. Your article really did turn the light on for me as far as this particular issue goes. But there is actually just one point I am not too comfy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core theme of the position, allow me observe exactly what all the rest of the visitors have to point out.Well done.
