    Were you good at sport when you were a kid or did you start as a teen or adult?

    What sports do you do and which activities have made your body the way it is?

    I was a band geek...any instrument except woodwind. (how ironic, huh? lol)
    My body is still a work in progress, but I'm doing it via various workout routines. Once my schedule is more stable, I'll get involved in Ultimate Frisbee...really miss that! Kayaking would also be fun, but that requires a much more open schedule than what I have now.

    Hopefully someone will say they got their body online, and post a link to where I can pick one up as well. That would save lots of sweat, hard work, and dedication. icon_lol.gif

    I was a band geek AND GLEE kid as well.

    I didn't really blossom until I started going to the gym in 1997 at age 32. Once I started hitting the gym and eating right, I "bought" my body with hard work, commitment, and patience.

    I continue to "pay my dues" daily to keep the body that I love.

    In high school I was the skinny kid enviously ogling the football jocks.

    Now I'm in better shape than all of those ex-jocks LOL.

    I was unsporty until the age of 21, then started jogging, cycling and swimming (non seriously). I always wanted a more muscular body, but for some reason scorned going to a gym. I did triathlon, yoga and kung fu, but didn´t really start to look better until I took up pilates and weight lifting. I´d say the way my body looks now is mostly due to Pilates and happened in my early 30s.

    (transformation can be seen in my private pics).

    Yeah, I worked out since the age of 23 but I was constitutionally skinny until my early 30s, and muscle didn't come easily to me until my mid-to later 30s. Late bloomer I guess, but today 40 is the new 25.

    I have good genes. I started lifting at 11yo. I wrestled, biked and did gymnastics during my youth. Now I am lucky to see the gym.
    Which I will probably post about because I go thru times where I am to go and then others, I barely get 1 hr to eat lunch and usually thats at my desk while typing emails or doing Drawings.

    I started hitting the gym when I entered high school, but I did pushups and situps every now and then in grade 9 because my sis kept teasing me about how skinny I was lol


    I think I'm in an okay shape, except working out so soon may have been the reason why I've been 5'4 for about... four years? lol

    I have untreated hyperthyroidism (I prefer to regulate with diet and exercise rather than taking eradiated iodine pills to kill my thyroid) so I have always been very thin.

    At 16 I finally decided I was sick of getting picked on for being skinny and gained almost 40 lbs by eating my own invented high carb and protein diet in less than 6 months and started working out like a motherfucker during that time.icon_cool.gif

    Mainly Genetics. But I ran track in field starting at age 14 until 18. I did show choir from 16-18. From 18-21 I ran a lot and lifted lightly. At 21 I started heavy lifting.... and now i look like this.

    What an inspiration! Do you have pictures? Do you remember your weight? Every time I hear some story, some before & after pictures, it's always someone who has lost weight. It seems like they have it easier.

    I played H20-polo in high school and college. The coaching staff made us run, swim sprints and lift weights. We worked out twice each day in college during the season. I owe whatever looks I still have left to those great coaches way back when.

    An artist/friend did this for me - - it depicts me back in college - 30 years ago. My weight workouts all these years have been very close (with modifications) to the same intense workouts they taught me in my playing days.

    I've always had a bigger chest, thighs and a big ass...but my legs have always pretty toned since I've played soccer most of my life.

    I was in good shape playing water polo for years, then I careened into fast food (my first job) and out of sports altogether, drinking and indulging in hard drugs throughout high school.

    Quit most everything and now I'm a model citizen working towards (edging closer and closer) for that model body.

    Competition skater as a young guy and some football in High school till I had to stop to work full time in order to help support my family; however, I mostly credit a bud in the Navy for getting me to train for Iron Man before I got out. It was because of that body I was able to coast along for so many years. I know I’ll never get that body back but it is still under there and I can get most of it back.
