    I'm just curious, how long have you guys been working out?

    I'm at three years, with the last 5-6 months being hardcore. What keeps you going ?

    Five years, three months....about.
    The sheer enjoyment and pleasure I get from it;always feel better after a good, hard, long run.

    Almost 2 months. It's actually starting to almost become an addiction for me now though. I don't know why I didn't start working out sooner.

    On and off......mostly off.......since I got my first weight set as a teenager. I joined a gym and started taking it more seriously over a year ago. I keep myself motivated because I never want to go back to the way that I was before.

    Oh, I just started working out about 6 months ago. Nothing too drastic, though. I go in about 2 days a week and lift a little here and there.

    Hahaha.... Don't you hate when guys say shyt like that. I mean, really? I once asked this guy who was jacked how long he had been working out for, and he literally told me that he just started six months ago. Yeah, right! He was twice my size and had amazing definition, and he expected me to believe that he had only been lifting for six months. icon_lol.gif

    Anyway, I've been working out for going on 10 years with several years off in between for school and health issues. I would say 6 years out of the ten were consistent, while 4 years were wasted because of the above issues.

    My motivation was and is because I'm a member of the FFB's club (former fat boy's club). I was always overweight as a kid and up into my late teens, so when I entered my 20's, I made the decision to get healthy and fit, especially after coming out to myself, my family and my friends. Believe me, queens can be mean to a fat gay boy!

    I keep working out now because I feel great when I work out and there's always the fact that it makes you look amazing when you walk around naked, and isn't that really why we do it? icon_lol.gif

    I started lifting in 1998. Around 2001 I began to maintain routines at a minimum of three days a week. Somewhere around 2005 I started inching up to 4-5 days a week.

    These days I have to be careful to take adequate breaks for recovery. I find it hard to take time off from the gym, and I probably get too much cardio on my days off between riding my bike and this mountaineering habit..

    off and on throughout Uni but 1 year solid (serious), been working with a great trainer for the past year so the results are a bit more consistent.

    I dont drink anymore so thats a big step in the right direction.
