Yep, been this road also! What I finally did was pay the fee for a personal trainer for a few sessions at our wellness centre and she showed me how to start out REALLY slowly and work up to a "normal" workout.
Also, my husband was having a problem with getting effective workouts without terrible fatigue until he had sleep studies done and found out that he has sleep apnea. Since he has been treated for that, he is MUCH BETTER.GH
