How do I get in shape *without* losing weight?

I need an excercise plan that won't make me sexy! Weight loss not needed.

I've gotten more sedentary lately — my commute's too long to bike now, and a dodgy knee has kept me from enjoying dancing — and sure enough I'm starting to feel out of shape. Looks like I need to start making a point of working out. I've never had to do that before, and I have no clue where to start.
The problem is, most of the workout information I've seen is for people who want to get thinner or beefier or more "toned." I'm skinny already — according to my last checkup, if I get any thinner I'll be underweight. And I don't want rippling muscles or washboard abs or whatever. I just want to climb stairs without getting winded. Do they even make workout guides for people with no body image problems?
