  1. Hello, all! I was on here a long while ago working on my fitness and am returning several years later (and several years older - welp!) from an entirely different country and with completely different goals, ready to work on myself again! 😄 Back then I was in my late teens and concentrated heavily on cardio and studying to great success, but I also had far less to contend with back then. I'm quite a changed person now, with a job I love in a city in England, an intolerance to lactose that I was free of as a youngster (boo), and an only slightly detrimental work ethic (
  2. Hiya, guys! ^-^ I was here years ago (I wish I remembered my username but sadly, I don't!) and then had some health issues that put a halt on a lot. Just on the absolute off-chance that anybody I did know comes across this, I was put out of commission (and well, into hospital) due to unmanageable seizures and the chronic pain that resulted. Its been a while and not only am I back in tip-top shape again (between treatment, surgeries and more!) but I've since moved to England and have a steady career (in the nerdy field! Ay!) I swear, how time flies. I remembered this place a few we
  3. Hello! My names Mike, I'm overweight and no longer as fit as I was 5 years ago. After much faffing I've finally joined and set up my 'character'. And, as sharing is caring, here is my Acadamy Profile. This is me!
  4. So I live in a part of the UK that has plenty of woodland, heathland, hills and countryside, near the end of the Southwest Coast Path, which has some fairly tricky bits to negotiate. Some routes follow roads for a bit before plunging back into overgrown footpaths or gravelly hills. I've never quite worked out which parts of these come under walking, and which hiking. It doesn't seem to be as clearly defined over here as in, say, the US. Especially when we have terms like hill- or fell-walking (though I don't think my hills qualify for those terms). I want to mark off various hiking
  5. Hello fellow rebels. Jess here reporting in for my first challenge. I have made it through the Christmas period without going (too) crazy on mince pies. My main quest is to get down to a healthy weight/dress size. I'm aiming to get down to a UK size 10/12 (US 6/8). I have a dress already and everything. How will I do it I hear you ask, well that's where this challenge comes in. Starting Stats: Monday 4th January 2016 Weight: 99.4 KG Height: 5'4.5" Body build: Pear BF% 54.1% Body Water% 33.9% BMI 36.8 Measurements: Thursday 7th January 2016 All measurements are from the widest pa
  6. Hello, I'm Jess and I'm from the UK. I've tried many times to lose weight and get healthy with mixed results. I've had problems with my digestion for the past few years and I've recently reintroduced eating wheat based products to my diet that has helped me lose 3 lbs (which I think my be due to increased fiber in my diet.) I am 5'4.5" and I currently weigh 203 lbs. This is getting close to the most that I have weighed ever and I am between a UK 16 and UK 18 dress size. I have mild asthma which I think is due to my weight gain as it has only appeared in the past three years. I am 30 y
  7. Greetings and salutations, My name is Zack, 27yo of Albion (the UK)... Since 2013 I have been on an epic quest to get healthy, motivated and become the best version of myself. The road has been long and there have been many setbacks... at first the motivation was there and I was unstoppable, I lost 3st of my 4st weight loss goal and went from being a sedentary beer monster with a dodgy ticker to an active guy, taking part in military boot camps, tabata and crossfit. I quit smoking and completely overhauled my eating habits, becoming a vegetarian, which was challenging, but extremely re
  8. Any rebels from UK especially Yorkshaire? I'm from Leeds and I'm looking for any nerds around in this area.
  9. Hey. I'm Jelly, a 24 year old German person who's been living in the UK for the last seven-odd years. I've recently completed a Media Studies degree (recently, as in Tuesday) and am now in that odd inbetween-y place that temporarily grants me buckets of freetime to finally sort myself out a bit until I've found a place to stay/someone willing to give me money in exchange for labour power. Not that I intend to fall back into bad habits once I'm a bit more secure, but we'll tackle maintainance once we get there. So, I've been pretty fat all my life, and am perfectly aware that it's mainly du
  10. 25yo girl khajiit seeks leanness... 1/2 marathon in Sept '15, swimming once a week and strength training with a PT 2x a week. BUT I've been seriously slacking on my nutrition, not tracking macros and hence no results yet! SO I'm determined to join the Rebellion and get serious about my new 6 week challenge... 1) MAIN CHALLENGE: I will track EVERY calorie - every gram or butter, yoghurt or ml of milk. No more lazy 'guestimating' for the full 6 weeks (30 days) 2) I will stretch every morning, switching up the routine as required, for at least ten mins. (To improve squat, deadlift performance
  11. Hello all! I didn't want to introduce myself until I was sure I was gonna stick around, and now, very nearly at the end of my first six week challenge, I'm confident that I'm a rebel for good! So, hi! *waves* I'm Sam, a 24-year-old from North Yorkshire, England. Work as a French tutor and live with my lovely partner of 5 years, whom I'm marrying this summer. I love birdwatching, Joss Whedon's entire oeuvre, spending as much time outside as possible, Harry Potter, craft, reading, and lately, getting fit. I also love cheese and beer. In terms of fitness, I was always a geeky child who
  12. Looking for someone to start training with, I'm a beginner so all levels of fitness welcome. Maybe take a few martial arts courses, do some cardio, then there's the mental fitness, which will involve watching lots of fight movies Anyone?
  13. Hi! I am looking for someone to help me stay motivated and even perhaps train with. I am 30 yrs old, coming back from not doing weights for a fair few years. I was really active in my twenties. Judo, Aikido and wrestling. I live on Barry Island , South Wales, UK but will be moving to Pentyrch very soon. I am doing weights in the backyard 6 days a week 5.30 am start, cardio maybe 2-3 a week and throwing in some yoga. I work 12.5 hour shifts so 5.30 starts or 6.30 in the gym at work. I have lost about 14 lbs since January and would like to lose another 14 lbs. I work as an MRI tech. I am interes
  14. Hello UK sorts. I've noticed that the current 6 week challenge finishes (25th May) during the Hay Festival of Literature. I am that sort of nerd too, and likely to be attending, and I wondered if any fellow rebels will be around, to celebrate the end of the challenge. Maybe even ruin all that hard work by drinking. For we are British.
  15. Hi everyone, This year in October I want to do the Inca Trail in Peru and as part of the preparation for it I was thinking of doing several hiking week-ends, culminating with some hikes in the high Alps in August-September. Seeing that at the end of April I have to be in Aberystwyth for a few days, I'm trying now to organize one week-end of hiking in Wales (not necessarily around Aberystwyth, even though that was my first option). I've never been to Wales, but I already started looking a bit around. For now these are a few ideas I have for the hiking routes: part(s) of the Wales Coast Path
  16. Hey, I've just moved to the area and live in Leighton Buzzard. Don't know anyone in the area and would like some fitness buddies to train with and meet up for other nerdy ventures. Like I said I live in Leighton Buzzard so anyone around Milton Keynes or Luton please get in touch. I generally train doing Movnat, but have focuses every couple of months. I'm also a Movnat certified trainer so could teach you some stuff too if your interested. Look forward to hearing off you guys
  17. I procrastinate too much! I think too much and do too little. I'm from Doncaster in the UK I'm 45 and self employed. As a child, my fitness and activity level was zero, nil... Never played any sport in school or collage (sport was not compulsory when I was a kid). I was a real nerd. Into computers (had the obligatory ZX-80), gaming, staying inside away from daylight, watching cartoons that I was far too old for etc... The only time I ever got fit was when my best mate who I met in my first job - I was 19 - who was a fitness and gym fanatic talked me into going to the gym with him. I w
  18. Hi guys, So when I was a teenager, I used to be fit, healthy and played a lot of sport. Unfortunately when I was 16 I received an injury while playing rugby (I split my pancreas in half, I kid you not! questions are welcome) which meant I had to spend 2 months in hospital. After I recovered I was stupid enough to start rugby again and ripped 2 ligaments in my knee. At which point I took the hint and stopped playing. So I went through A-Levels and went to University (doing a degree in Comp Sci and AI) and didn't do nearly as much excercise and a lot more drinking. I am now 21 and have yet to
  19. Hey Everyone! I'm back for my second challenge after slipping up quite a bit towards the end of my first I'm not very creative but I've seen a few people 'theme' their challenges so - why not! X-Men has been close to my heart since I was a kid so it's only fitting that I apply it here! MAIN QUEST: Ditch The Brotherhood and return to The Institute (NF) aka Lose weight and feel better about myself Goal 1 - Don't eat like Blob! I'm going back down the Paleo route with this one because I didn't quite stick it out on the first challenge but I felt the benefits and want that again. Following
  20. Hi, Brand new rebel here with my first post. My name is Joe and I am from the UK. My nerd credentials first: I love comics. Right that is out of the way. Phew. Now on to fitness credentials. I have been in and out of the fitness world my whole life. Played football (Soccer) a lot (and I mean a lot) up until I was about 20 then at university I found beer and laziness and one thing led to another and I am in the state of unfitness I am today. During that time there have been sojourns into running - a year or so of training for 5ks and a half marathon, got back in to football (soccer) for

  22. So, I've been a reader for a long while, but have purposefully not started to post until now. I'm James, 28, from London England. I decided to get into shape when a good friend of mine decided to become a personal trainer late in 2011. I was a good 20lb overweight at that point (I'm 6ft tall and was hovering around 205lb) with a sedentary lifestyle thanks to constant travel with work. I had major confidence issues in general, and had recently mostly overcome a stammer which really didn't help matters. Fast forward to today, and I'm still travelling a fair bit, but am in the gym 4-5 times
  23. Well this should be interesting, my first challenge oooo scary Ok, well my starting point is about 7.16 stone, and my fitness isnt too good (to the point where the teacher for my MMA fitness class has to warn others that im fragile and not allowed to hold the pads). My goals: I technically have five goals but seeing as the first one will probably be the same one for any and all challenges i participate in i thought id pick four different ones aswell. 1. Actually stick to this everyday for the full six weeks. D: i have a tendency to give up REALLY easily, i make all my goals, work out what im
  24. Hello to all at NerdFitness, my first reaction to finding this site is; why didn't I find this site sooner?! I'm a 24yo guy from Bristol UK, frequently practicing running, swimming, climbing, cycling, strength training, sprinting, bodyweight exercise, gymnastics, and circus skills, in no particular order. And like many of you, totally addicted to video games, films, and all nerdy goodness. Currently in good to v. good shape with goals of improving further, mostly reducing BF% and increasing lean muscle mass. I want to reach my absolute peak before I'm out of my 20s and priorities can "chan
