my self I never go to the gym and work out , if im going to workout I will accomplish something at the same time.Alot of time working in the yard and I pick hobbies that are active , hiking , shed hunting , horses ,bike riding ,swimming  . that kind of stuff as often as you can.And yes I did say riding horses, you would be amazed the kind of work out you get from riding a horse.
Bury me with my bow,I will die with it in my hands hunting elk.

Just started running.  Did one 10k last year that was a fundraiser for a camp for families that have lost a child which we sadly go to.  Now running has become my main therapy.  So far this week I did one distance run about 14 mi, and intervals with some triathalon athletes at a local hs, and a shorter distance run to work out the stiffness the day after intervals and it feels great.  Better shape at 38 than when I was playing sports in hs.  Just start and then grow it distance or speed and keep at it.

Its been a lot harder for me since we have had our young children.  I try to get some scouting trips in and hike and stay in shape that way.  Going to the gym when I can between work and kids.  Try to eat healthy if ur nat making it to the gym to keep weight off

It's all about attitude.

Having suffered a medical near death experience I too found it extremely hard to pull it up by the boot straps.

I mentally had to push it as well as physically.

Ain't no fun sitting on the sidelines!

Conquer the mind, conquer the body.

Slow & steady wins the race....always!

If it's just weight your worried about its less work out and more kitchen. Muscles are built in the gym, endurance on the track and weight in the kitchen. Master all 3 correctly and elk season will be a breeze

I'll 2nd it's about attitude.  Most people quit and don't even try.  It's a life style change.

Being in shape makes EVERYTHING easier!  Hunting, icefishing, all outdoor activities are more fun when you arent dying to catch your breath.  The older you are, the harder it is to get back in peak shape.  Just pick up a 15 pound dumbell and think, 'im carrying this around on my knees, back, etc every day....Eat smart, exercise, and get fit!!

Being a "flatlander" I need to train even more to keep up with you high country folks. Elk hunting every year now, is in itself, my motivation. It saved my life. I was 30 years old and 45 pounds over weight. Borderline High blood pressure. I now get into great shape every year to keep chasing elk. When I am in "mountain shape" I weigh what I did as a high school athlete! It also reminds me to make good choices the other 9 months out of the year.
