How can I motivate my 19-yr-old son to exercise ?
My 19-yr-old son is 6' 1" and weighs 231 lbs. He is not physically active on a regular basis. My husband moved out of the house last year and he & I will be going through a divorce. I add that info because its just me dealing with this issue on a daily basis. My son had spurts of physical activity playing hockey and baseball in elementary and middle school. He hasn't been active on a regular basis for 3 yrs. I don't want to see him start out his adulthood overweight. Having mom on your case is just weird and uncomfortable for males this age. I've tried encouraging and inviting him to work out at my gym but he only tells me what I want to hear at the moment and then does not follow through. Please advise.
