  1. Hey guys, I am new to this forum. I am fitness freak and going gym from 9 months and lose around 26 Kgs in those months. Now I am looking for some tips to increase my muscle size
  2. Hi guys First off: Happy new year! I randomly found this site and the forums while i could not sleep and got stuck on my cellphone. So I decided to sign in here on the next day and get started, just to try if it helps me to stay on track. (It is actually a coincidence that I join in the new years eve, it is not a new year's resolution, so it has actually a chance to work and I have a good possibility to retrospect next year) Some words about me: I am a nearly 29 years old dude living in Germany (Bremen to be precise) who needs a change in life. Right now I
  3. Hi, I'm Katura, or Katya, or Kat. Any of those work. I'm looking forward to improving my fitness with you all.
  4. Heya I'm new to Nerd Fitness and am looking to get involved in the community... I'm a boxer (just starting out again--and struggling to do so--after a very long absence), so I'd love to meet some other NF folks who are into that, but if you're not, that's Okay, too. I have a lot of great friends IRL, but not a lot of friends who are interested in fitness, unfortunately, so I'm reaching out here to see who I can find. Excited to meet you!
  5. Hey! I've found NF two days ago after looking at myself in the mirror and thinkin "I need to finally take care of myself". But maybe let's start with an introduction (I hope this forum is alive and well btw ;)) I'm (almost) 26 years old. I work as a web developer in Poland. My first encounter with a gym was when I was around 16-17 years old. I've always been a very skinny kid, and in a couple of months in the gym I've managed to gain a little bit of muscle and look somewhat healthy. Unfortunately I've abandoned that habit and never managed to get back on track consistently. I'm strugglin
  6. Hey Everyone! I decided to join the community to try to have some support during my journey of trying to tone up and lose fat. Also, I joined so I can learn more about what my goals mean and how to more effectively reach them. Even though I do have a good amount of knowledge on health, food, exercise, mental health and wellness and things of the like, I just thought that joining a community reaching different health goals could help!
  7. Hullo all! I'm James Penhallurick, a games design graduate, and currently self employed illustrator! I'm not entirely new to fitness and health, just over 3 years ago I was quite active, going to the gym at least 3 times a week, generally being more active than I am now! I've been on and off routines for the last 2 years, and now that I'm less busy in life, I've decided enough is enough! I want to get back to doing it all properly as I really enjoyed it! I do have a gym membership but I'm totally open to trying out new things, I'm relatively ave
  8. Hello fellow Rebels! I'm very excited to find a group of people who share my affinity for nerd culture! A friend of mine told me about Nerd Fitness last Wednesday and I've been reading articles and Steve's book and working through the angry bird challenge and doing my best at paleo. I'm super excited about being the best me I can be and it's been rough because I've got no accountability, so in the past everything I've started I just gruadually stopped doing and I didn't have anyone to be like "hey, did you get this done?" I'm 22 with a beautiful 6 month old daughter and
  9. Hi all. This is Dorcha. I usually go by Druid on the net but as that is an actual thing with your nifty organization, I changed it up. I'm 29 (almost 30...holy cow) and non-binary. I currently have a fairly sedentary job at a law firm but used to work in the theme park business where things were more active. I'm currently semi-active but the 20s metabolism crash definitely got to me. I would like to lose about 25-30ish pounds. Slow metabolism is a pain. Haven't been a part of a forum in about fifteen years or so, but thought I'd give this forum a try anyway. Last forum I was a part
  10. Hi NF community, new here and just saying hello... Friendly geek of mine suggested I join as would be a nice way to meet some new people with my similar interests.... gym, health, comics, games and general geek stuff..
  11. Hi there! My name is Kristen and I'm new to Nerd Fitness forums! I've actually been following Nerd Fitness Academy and I've been on the Rebel Women FB page, but this is my first time checking out the forums. Forums, in general, are completely new to me, but I think being connected with you all here will be a super valuable resource! I've already lost 20lbs following the program and eating paleo (yay!) but I want to reach my doctor's "recommended" weight which is 175lbs. I'm currently 225. 50lbs... YEESH. I don't think it's impossible, but it will be difficult, which is
  12. Hey y'all, I'm Indy and I'm new here. I've been an email subscriber to nerd fitness articles for forever now and decided to finally take a step into your world. While I love Tabletop games I've never been much of a RPG player so I'm not sure how all this guild/levels/race stuff works, bear with me as I figure it out lol. I'm a 28 year old female who enjoys reading and writing. I'm overweight and want to get my health back, while losing weight would be a plus my main goal is to just be healthy. Baby steps are the way for me, I'm in this for the long haul not some quick fix. No my real name
  13. [wall of crazy text. skip to the bottom for sanity/] I've tried both losing weight and NF before, but it hasn't stuck. I'm not very good at being in pain (and 6 push-ups = pain). It doesn't help that I'm already an ok weight - medium fat (not skinny, not obese) at 65kg, 161cm - but hardly Victoria's Secret model, which is where I want to end up. I eat like a horse. I've always joked that there's a fat girl hiding under my skin because I am always hungry. Recently I started logging calories again. The thing is, I cycle to work, so going running three-four times a week, as I keep tell
  14. So I've been on the email list for a while with nerd fitness and never really looked into the forums and what this really was. I love that its a community that supports each other! Figured I'd give it a try. About me: I grew up in a small town in Florida, spent years working on a neighbors farm as a kid and became a competitive figure skate which is quite the dichotomy. I have always been pretty nerdy, sci fi, computer programming, and into tech. After many years of training for figure skating and working on the farm I had to quit doing the skating because of knee surgeries and moved away
  15. Hello! I'm idealist. I'm a newcomer to this board and a college student. I discovered this board through googling 'parkour' (I've wanted to do parkour since freshman year), read a bunch of the links, and thought it was a breath of fresh air from the usual television-doctor type of garbage that took advantage of women's anxiety about their appearance and made money off of it. This cynicism stopped me from making any plans to improve my health even after my mom called me fat. Would I be giving in to their game? Don't get me wrong, part of my motivation for working out is getting rid of my gut an
  16. Hi everyone, My name is Aaron Kantrowitz and I'm a new member of the Nerd Fitness Rebellion! This site really caught my eye since I discovered it today. This seems more like a movement and not simply just another blog or community. I'm 28, an IT professional, web developer/designer and expectant father! While I love tech, I know how it comes with some unhealthy habits such as snacking and being sedentary. I've learned over the past 2 years that you must get up and be active throughout the day. Finding my passion for fitness and health over the past year has been such a wonderful experienc
  17. Hello I am new to the Rebellion and I was born an elf and I want to eventually be a monk/assassin/warrior hybrid (I want the speak and power of a monk the strength of a warrior and the body, flexibility, and agility of an assassin) I know it sounds crazy (or the perfect fighter). Well anyways I have a question for anyone out there who can answer it. My GF wants to lose some fat around her belly but due to something that happened when she was little she has ABSOLUTELY no control over her core muscles (the closest thing she can do to flexing her stomach is sucking in her gut). So she can't do pu
  18. How are you doin' I don't have IDEA how did i get here, but it's been a while since i started reading some articles, and i have to say, I liked the blog A LOT, so i told my self... why not join the forum? i mean, it's been years since i joined and actively participated in a forum, so, why not? . I'm from south america, 23 y/o, college student (public management) and well... i like a lot of things, nerdy stuff included, so i think i can fit in here, i mean, i'm pretty sure someone has to like Zelda, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, A Song of Ice and Fire, memes, Charlie the Unicorn, C
  19. Oh hey Rebellion, I have been reading NerdFitness for a little bit of time now, and I have loved it! I actually have loved it so much that I have decided to just join the community and see what happens. Just as a quick intro, I'm a nerd who is graduating from my master's program like, in three weeks. I have a pretty decent workout routine and I am starting P90X for the third time, hopefully the second time I actually finish it I am looking into getting into trail running and I have a feeling the rebellion will have some tips for me. I would like to be able to continue to do strength train
  20. Hi, I've been reading the blog for a month or so but have just joined and got the fitness guide. I'm a web developer, desk job, but (when in great shape) I'm definitely a Ranger type, athletic build and a little of everything workout-wise. I lost 50 lbs about 8 years ago and started working on re-losing 28 of it a couple of months ago, rather half-heartedly. But now I've made good progress at making running a habit again and am down 20 lbs to go. I need some help with strength training, I'm doing the Angry Birds workout along with short runs now but want to do more (without getting injur
  21. Hello! I'm a wife and a first time mom. I have a beautiful daughter who brings me so much joy .... and drives me kinda crazy... on a daily basis. Honestly I'm blessed to be able to stay home with her most of the time, but I work also. I work 2 or 3 12-hour overnight shifts a week as a nurse. I've never been teeny tiny, but my weight started bothering me enough for me to actually do something consistantly after my daughter was born. 2, 4, 6, 8, 9 months after her birth, and I had not lost any of the pregnancy weight keeping me at an unhealthy 210lbs. Just to be clear... I still weighed the
