    I have such a love/hate relationship with ab

    workouts. They can be so painful and strenuous but the soreness is worth it in the end 💪

    Been going to the gym regularly

    for the past year and it's amazing. It's a bit intimidating at first, but once you get into your routine you don't even worry about it. made some friends there too which is cool.

    Daily Basis

    It's what I do. I'm an athlete and I run an average of 9-11 miles every day. As a part of my warm up I do push ups and sit ups as well. Lately I've been on a diet and I've lost 5 lbs. I've been doing extra sit ups as well and Im so proud of my new slightly protruding abs that I...

    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...

    I have gone through "dry spells" (for lack of a

    On A Mission

    I have been athletic since I was in grade school. I was on the track team, a cheerleader, gymnastics, rode my bike, and did most anything that kept me moving from yard work, swimming, and dancing. In my early 20's I was a high impact aerobics instructor. During the next 2...

    I workout 5-6 days a week.

    Workouts to me are good for the mind, body and soul. I feel so blah mentally when I don't workout for a few days.

    Love H.I.I.T. workouts!

    I especially love doing them after dinner time in the evenings so I feel much more relaxed afterward! Then to tpo it all off- a nice hot shower. It's the simple things :) H.I.I.T. workouts are so great and take barely 20 minutes out of your day, I highly suggest them! Short...

    I'm sore as hell from my core workout. It's weird but I embrace the feeling. I love working my body until I feel I like I'd die from the burn.

    I don't work out because I hate the way my body

    looks or I want to have an ideal body. I just work out because it feels good, I like to know that I am taking care of myself. Its a great sensation to wake up sore the next day and know that I pushed my limits.

    I can't get myself motivated to begin

    exercising. Mostly, because I don't get the results I want. I have tried for the six pack (or something near) twice and haven't accomplished anything. At one point I was only getting thinner, which I wouldn't care if I had a flat stomach but I still had fat, not much but I had...

    Just started. I am a good runner

    and I used to ride my bicycle at high intensity in the mornings. I kind of gave up after I had a minor accident that gave me chronic back pain. I gained weight. Fat weight. I always had a good metabolism and I was always lean and slim. But for the past two years, I've been...

    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 always done my best to work out every week

    The personal trainer changed up my routine

    today. She used a tabata style methodology instead of straight strength training. For example, I do usually do 3 sets of squats using the smith machine. Today she cut the weight to 60% and upped the sets to 8 with no set number of reps. Each set was 20 seconds of squats and 10...
