Must be pretty mild porn you watch if it’s only a cordless drill.
I’ve seen one powered by a petrol generator.

Not a great deal of help on the fitness side but have you tried Nexium? It works wonders on the acid reflux etc.
All I can really say is start light and work your way up. You don't want to risk injury doing too much too soon

Do you have the opportunity to do pullups and chinups? You'll be amazed at the effect they have on your upper body even after a short time of doing them. They work just about every muscle above your waist including your core and abs.

Generally when I'm completely overweight and out of date, I usually just ease myself into circuit training if you can find some locally. Something Bootcamp or CrossFit does the trick, often a few tools but that's anywhere, including the boozer. Once you get into about 3 weeks, you'll be able to manage the classes better and hopefully start enjoying them.

Agree with the above, especially if your 30+ and so generally a bit more 'creaky'. Seek out a personal trainer/coach to learn the basic lifts / starting strength. Although a lot of PT don't necessarily have good form or qualifications (even if they look ripped themselves) so maybe try a weightlifting gym. It will cost but it's an investment.

I agree that you need to attain a base strength before doing CF.
As suggested, a goal of a certain number of chin ups, pull ups is a good idea. You need to have your lats, biceps, triceps and core strong enough to be able to do it so you will soon be able to work out where you’re lacking and then do exercises which target that muscle. Once you can do a certain number then experiment with different grips etc to find new weaknesses.
I find boxing good cardio and you need core and balance so it’s a good all round activity.
Start doing park run if you’re near one

I'm starting to incorporate a lot of calisthenics and yoga work into my training and the results are very good.
Particularly from a flexibility / range of motion point of view. Since I've started my olympic lifting has improved so much through my shoulders and hips opening up loads.
I've always done pull ups, chins, muscle ups etc but have since started doing a lot of ring push ups and the squeeze you get in your chest is so much better than anything I get from weights.

Getting back in the gym after a lay-off and a few stop starts. Decided to work on base fitness first by focusing on mobility, callisthenics and the prowler. Did barely 20 reps of 50 metre sprints with one today and couldn’t move after the last for about ten minutes….

Starting strength is great for beginners - or 5x5 stronglifts.
Main thing is to get your form right first, and gradually increase weights by 2.5kg the next time your doing a certain exercise.
As long as your diet is adequate you'll gain confidence and increase your strength in no time.
After a few months, you can then venture to other programs that will help achieve your goal
