What helps me is:
1. Being able to exercise right at home, or without getting into my car. The thought of exercise can be a little bit overwhelming sometimes. If you have to add the thought of driving to a gym, it’s a totally different story. I have an exercise bike and treadmill and can go running outside.
2. Exercising when it works for my schedule. For me that’s early morning or late at night.
3. Exercising a reasonable amount of time. I’ve settled on about 30 minutes. More than that and it becomes too much of a chore. Less than that and it becomes insubstantive.
4. Varying it up when the mood suits me. Switching to weights and a much shorter exercise routine, for example.
Before I did exercire actively. Now I do it slowle without sudden movements and have more pleasure. Good luck

Because the condition results in a mechanical problem, at this point exercise is the least trouble since I want to keep functioning independently.
Having an accountability person works.
Signing up for classes that you have to pay for and cAnt cancel.
I also suggest reading Atomic Habits by James Clear.
