    I want to work out, however going to the gym i just feel small and embarrassed not knowing what to do. I did do P90X but did not fallow nutrient guide lines. Now Its even more difficult cuz I am on the road 20/30 days a month, yes hotels have gym but not a personal trainer, or is it even worth to have one. I am just overwhelmed of all the things that need to be done to get results. So please help give me website, tips, anything so I can get this going asap. Feel free to send a personal msg to me too if you don't like sharing on here. THX icon_wink.gif

    I'd go crazy if I weren't able to work out on a very regular basis. That's why I don't like extended vacations (anything more than 4-5 days).

    Sorry, I'm not following you. I work out on my vacays, either in a hotel gym, or sometimes local gyms have short term/ day passes available. It takes a little more effort and research sometimes but you can always get some kind of workout in.

    I actually like it when I go somewhere and get to try out an new gym that has some different equipment , and maybe meet some new people icon_smile.gif

    It can be difficult if you're constantly on the road for your job, but it's not impossible. If it's important enough to you then you can figure out a way to do it.

    You don't need to do everything to get results, but you do need to do something. Begin at the beginning then build from there. Pushups, situps and pullups can be done almost anywhere. Anything is better than nothing.

    And as it has been mentioned many times in many different threads, there is no reason to be intimidated. Nobody started out buff or huge, they got there through hard work over time. Anyone who is in there and working, i.e. not sitting on the equipment playing with their phone, has my respect no matter their shape.

    Peace.

    I started working out from a "friend", who showed be things without technique or form. I was headed for disaster and injury. After six months, I hit a plateau and hired a really good trainer which ended being one of he best investments I've ever made in my own personal health. There are plenty of sites and videos out there, but if you don't get some personal feedback on YOUR style, YOUR body and YOUR form, then you may not see the progress you want. Also, you'll want some nutritional guidance.

    What I've learned with trainers is: Observe them. Ask questions. Find out their experience and match that with your goals. Don't be afraid to have a session and say, "no thanks, you're not my person." You are paying for results, so make sure you keep up to your end of the commitment!

    Dude, you are at the PERFECT age for getting a workout buddy and getting into a routine. Just stick with it and don't give up.

    best wishes.

    It can be hard to stay consistent if you're traveling a lot, but I think the most important thing is to try and make time to do SOMETHING.

    I know hotel gyms aren't always the best, but here are some ideas for some exercises you can do without much equipment:

    Good luck!
