      You could call it a challenge.
      The doctor and I played a little game known as 'Lose weight or die'

      Haha.

    Hi there, you seem lonely lol so thought I'd answer you. I don't know if this counts, I suppose it is a challenge to myself, but for the last month and a half I've been challenging/forcing myself up very early, be it 6,7- 8am and the first thing I do is drink a pint of water, and straight out(wearing cloths to) for a 6 mile run, 5 days a week. At the start it was very hard, but my fitness and alertness has gone through the roof. totally has me in great shape.

Getting up that early is definatley a challenge haha I prefer exercise around 3 so im finished around 5 and have dinner with no snacking ! you play any sport ?

      I use to box, gave it up to work, also played soccer, gaeilge football and hurling. I train now 5-6 days a week, resting one day, witch includes a swim, you should go for a light swim on your day of rest, great for muscle massage. If your trying to lose weight, a lot of water and a run before breakfast is, first thing is the way to get started, great for boosting your metabolism, and just eating healthy, plenty of fish and veg, is better than any diet.

      I'll spend just a couple of hours in a gym, but my passion, and my fitness experience is, you just can't beat a punch bag, excuse the pun wink

        Yeah was thinkin about goin to do a mix martial arts class just for the intensity of the fitness and some LIGHT sparring just as an extra to my routine yeah I usualy hit the bag in the gym and alot of squats I started of wanting to loose weight but now Im at 12.4 and really keen in getting bigger arms chest and shoulders haha ! Yeah boxing is somthing I wouldnt do but appeciate a good quality boxer like mayweather.

          haha I love when people get addicted to  fitness, such a natural high, you become a new person. You know, you can still take up boxing without the conflict, builds up great natural strength, or the martial arts even, doing something like this, say 1-2 nights a week, incorporating it in to your schedule, will benefit your muscles, and also strengthen your most important muscle, your brain. I'm not to big in muscle, at the weight I want to be, but i Can lift heavy compared to big muscular guys, different type of strength, years of conditioning I suppose. Is it soccer you play.

    Hi guys. I am into fitness too the best high in the world.I did a lot of aerobic workouts dancing, kick boxing, walking, etc and got a great body from that but it wasn't until I added weight training that I sculpted my body totally, amazing results. People say they are too tired to exercise, but if only they realised that exercise gives you huge amounts of energy.
    Yea I am a total fitness junky if I miss a workout I can't sleep until I have worked out.
