    Hey Guys,

    I'm pretty intent on getting my body into stupidly ridiculous Hugh Jackman shape.
    That being said, I can't afford a personal trainer at my gym, nor do I want to waste precious MONTHS following a pre-made program that may or may not actually get me to my physical peak. I'm about to turn 25 and from what I hear it just gets harder and harder to maintain and improve from then on...but I digress.

    Has anyone used or know of a good "Personal Trainer" website that I could use to reach my fitness goals?

    Can´t help you with the net trainer, but do not dispair... 25 is not too late. Obviously we all wish we´d started at the age of 15, but we didn´t.

    The first thing to sort out is your diet. Really. I know you hear this. It´s boring. Blah. But if you don´t do this then there is no point doing anything more.

    The rest... you learn. You do ideally want someone to show you form and help you understand how to stick stuff together, but it´s not too hard...

    This is truth. It can also be the hardest part to sort out, but it really is the most important. I've been gaining weight recently even though I started working out again about a month ago (I know some of that is muscle gain, but not all of it by any means) and now that I finally started changing my diet back to the level of health it was a couple years ago that weight gain has stopped; haven't started losing yet, but it's not going up anymore.

    Diet is most definitely key, though it is incredibly frustrating to get in line.

    I like Scott Hermann's vids on YouTube, and he has a site you may want to check out.

    I used PlusOneFit.com for when I first started going to the gym. You have to be willing to ask a lot of questions about the details of form, motion, balance, etc, since you won't have someone watching you and ready to correct you. How good are you at articulating exactly what you mean without hand gestures?

    have you talked to a PT at your gym ?
    you might not afford a trainer once or twice a week but
    maybe you could once every 2 weeks, or even once a month if you get everything well sorted out.
