    What's as important as a day at the gym?

    A day off from the gym. Your body needs it so that your muscles can recover. Your mind needs it so that you can concentrate on other things. I take two days off per week, usually, separated by a few days apart. Some people take one day off. Others, take three, and some take none...

    -- LEG DAY --Leg day kills me,

    almost. It is like someone plugs a power cord into my body and slowly drains my energy for about 90 minutes. By the time I walk out of the gym on leg day, I feel light headed and my whole body feels weak. Walking up stairs is difficult. As I leave the gym, I can't wait to get to...

    You Can Just Feel It

    I was on my third set of seated curls when her reflection in the mirror caught my eye. Still some distance away I was only sure I hadn’t seen her before.  New to the gym or at least to the early morning crew of lunatics of which I consider myself one.  I mean really, who in...

    I found out that my health insurance provides

    gym memberships in my area so I joined a gym about 6 weeks ago. I've been wanting to join for awhile but wasn't ready. As with most things I get into for work or for hobby, I begin with an intellectual interest. I have been studying about various aspects of health, working out...

    It's now been a year

    since I started working out! I started Dec 10, 2013 and I've done 81 workouts in that time. It only works out to about 1 for every 4.5 days and I wanted to try for 3 times per week, but it's a start! Now I have something to work towards so I can beat my record next year. Once I...

    I swim twice a week, a few kilometres each time.

    I workout twice a week. I have two routines involving cardio and free weights. Regular exercise is very important for good health, even sexual health!

    Cannot wait for tomorrow's morning workout.

    I absolutely love the feel of my strong and healthy body moving. Been working out for years, never had a weight problem, but I wish I had more muscle. Unfortunately, I'm afraid to do weight lifting by myself since your back can get injured if you're not doing it correctly. :/

    I started with a personal trainer

    after my boyfriend broke up with me! It's one of the best things I have done! Makes me stop thinking of him for at least an hour of my day and makes me happier in myself!
