"I'm not a fan of gyms.  I have a weight bench in the basement and I do all my cardio outside, even in the winter in Salt Lake City.  To me going to the gym is a chore.  It's much more motivating to put on a pair of snowshoes…"

"So much great advice already - let me just add my two cents as well. Change your diet - don't diet. The important thing is to change your mindset, not to starve yourself or deprive yourself of what you love. If you eat right 80% of the time,…"

"If you're not sure about what to do at the gym, why not pick an activity you think is fun and do that instead. For example, biking or swimming or martial arts or boxing or rock climbing or extreme polar monkey joust wrestling, etc. That way…"

"From someone who has struggled in the other direction (weight gain), these tips are all awesome, but I don't think recommending anyone start at a gym six days a week is a good idea. I'm a huge proponent of starting slow. Three days is much…"

"A lot of good advice here already. I will add or reinforce a few suggestions. Go to the gym at least 6 days per week and make it a habit. Don't give yourself any argument about why you should miss a day. Making this a habit is vital. Don't…"

"How about the elliptical? My knees and my back are crap, but the only thing that limits me on the elliptical is my feet will go numb if I don't shuffle them around when on it, or if on a cheap one."

"I'd look into a lifting routine.  I've had some success with StrongLifts 5x5, which is a 12-week three-day-a-week barbell routine.  It's not too time-consuming, and fairly simple to follow. The basics are that you do five…"

You do some ice breakers and you learn a little bit about each other. Suddenly, you notice a Nebraska Cornhuskers lanyard that your counselor is wearing and since you are a complete idiot and from Colorado, you strongly condemn the Nebraska team (and it is warranted because, many Nebraska fans are extremely annoying, and because you are…See More
