I Love Working Out At the Gym

    I've been working out

    for approximately twelve years. When I started, I'd just come back from University and my parents would make jokes about the gut I grew from years of beer and junk food. The gym has gone from something I had to do, to what I loved to do, back to what I have to do. I can...

    Keep It Up

    I have been going to the gym since January. I work really hard when I am there. I don't see the same people who started when I did. They just stopped going. Sometimes I wonder why people come when they barely workout? A few machines or a treadmill then they are done right away...

    Gym Vs. Home Workout -

    There's a big difference between working out at home and working out at the gym!! I personally can't stand working out at home...why?? 1. I never get as good a workout as when I'm at the gym! 2. I end up on the couch crunching chips instead of crunching abs! 3. Not the...

    It's my favorite thing to do.

    I don't think my day is complete without me lifting weights or just running at the gym, especially after this new workout I've been doing for bout a month now. Great results so far but I doubt this will take me to the 6 packs unless I add on a bit more later.

    I admire people who know they need to exercise for better health physically and have taken that first step at the gym. What I am not looking forward to are those people who will sign up as a New Year's resolution and will over-crowd the gym for about a month or two, maybe three...

    Did my hardest workout at the gym today.

    10 minutes of strength training followed by 25 intense minutes of cardio intervals on the StairMaster. I'm sweaty and shaky, but I feel really good. I know that I'm already stronger and healthier than I was before I worked out today!

    I go to the gym after choosing the music I will

    work out to. I go through about twenty song in a workout. I wear ladies' undergarments under my gym clothes and often have painted nails. I work out as Amy, because I find her more motivated than my male self

    Rebuilding Myself

    I love working out at the gym.  Even though I often feel horribly self conscious and I'm sure people are watching me and judging me.  After 20-odd years of drink/drug abuse with all the depression and self loathing that came with it,  a session in the gym feels...

    Was at the gym today,

    wore my black sleeveless shirt over my white pullover bra, yes the bottom of my bra was visible, did fifty minute treadmill jog. Between the gym and my dieting, I have shed ninety pounds since I started on EP. Again, thanks to my fans for inspiring me. Kisses, Amy

    I love putting in time on the weights.

    I also love knowing that I can take 4 - 5 years off lifting weights and still I am just as strong when I stopped. Very strange but true! Pumping iron help keeps the doctor away! Oh yeah, along with the apples. Lol!! :))
