OK, unlike all of our other tips, this one isn't about working a specific muscle group or taking up one particular type of exercise. However, it's no less important than the rest. If you see your exercise routine as pure drudgery, you're less likely to stick with it. One way to make it fun is to exercise with your significant other. If you're enjoying yourself as you get fit, then you'll be able to better use your newfound energy, stamina, flexibility and strength in the bedroom.

Accountability is an important factor here. If someone else is counting on you to get up for a jog at 5:30 a.m., you're more likely to do it instead of hitting snooze. You could also consider creating a little healthy competition. Make gym dates or plan outdoor adventures that incorporate exercise, like rock-climbing, hiking or biking. Consider playing a sport together like tennis or join a softball team. Working up a sweat with your partner (in a different way) could end up being very sexy indeed.
