    I do... I would start with some concrete goals, "micro" (meaning small and immediate) and "macro", which are longer term. Be realistic, be specific and make them measurable and attainable. Know the "avenue" you are going to use to make it happen (a gym, health club or work at home). If you are using a public facility, make sure you are given a tour of how to use the equipment and assess the idea of a trainer (if you can't afford it, ask about several free sessions).

    You need to understand yourself and your limitations. Many people fail because they don't elevate fitness as a major endeavor and make a part of their lifestyle. It can be a huge challenge, involving activity, nutrition and determination.

    Take some time to read and understand...

    ^^^ WELL SAID. ^^^

    I would only add the importance of being consistent. Too many guys slack off as they see improvement and then get discouraged when they start to lose ground.

    Behavior modification is tough! Ask any ex-smoker.
    But the rewards are pretty great

    ^Ditto, I think finding a good basic plan to build general fitness is an awesome way to get your feet wet, and after that you can decide where you want to go with it and what your goals are.
