    My motivation scale is at zero.

    Need some encouragement to go work out instead of buying cup cakes and going sit on the couch.

    I work out by chasing a two

    and a half year old all over my house and neighborhood. Who says you can't work out when you have kids?

    I've really been getting into lifting.

    However, I find that my usual squats with weights has become less work than before. I've stopped seeing results. I'm so intimidated by the "big boy" side of the gym, but really want to start utilizing the weights over there now. Ugh.

    I don't like it very much

    because it kind of hurts but I'm assuming that the end game for all this pain is going to work out in the end. I don't have a routine at all. I just sort of do the deed. Like, sometimes I get up really early to go for a run. I like the cold sunrises. But I cant seem to get my...

    I keep it intense. I work out

    for at least a couple of hours a day, six days a week. It's become the most important part of my life. There is nothing better than pushing yourself to your limit and then beyond.

    I work out more than most,

    but not as much as some. It’s enjoyable for me and puts me in a good mood. Feeling sore from a good workout is worth it. And when I start to feel myself get stronger, or see a person checking me out for a bit longer than what is polite…THAT is what keeps me going with a...

    I've been working out

    for a little over 7 years and I've been eating decently so it shows. I feel like I'm being judged because I look good and it makes people insecure about themselves. I'm probably just making it up but I know people look and I'm actually the one who is insecure....

    I do it mainly for weight loss

    but it does also make me feel good after having a good workout session. I do an hour of cardio 3-4 times a week.

    I have kept up a pattern of working out

    for the last couple of years now. I work out 3 or more times per week including running, weight training, chin ups, set ups and dips.

    QUESTION: What do you think about using a fan

    during exercise? Personally, it makes me last longer coz it helps me cool down and stay fresh😄

    Up until recently I didn't understand the

    dedication required to have a fit and muscle defined body. Since starting a 6 day for 9 weeks exercise program I have much respect to those that stay in shape!

    I use to be very overweight.

    Recently joined a gym with my friend

    and we've been doing a lot of plyo. I used to just do Insanity or workout to online exercise vids at home, but I guess I don't get the same motivation I do when I work out with someone at a gym. I'm not "fat" nor do I think of myself as "fat" but I've just wanted to maintain...
