20s guys or gals looking to get more fit?

Recommended Posts

23y/o guy looking at dropping about 70 net pounds in the next year.

Any other guys or gals on a similar sort of journey looking to keep in touch and motivate each other? I tend to like to keep my personal struggles out of my public life, so I'm not proclaiming my fitness goals to the world in any of my local communities.


I'm in Michigan, but geography isn't a big deal. E-mail, text messages, distance ain't no thang.

I'm also really into hockey and firearms, so if your hobbies include either of those, we'll have a ton to talk about outside of fitness, too.


Feel free to hit me up if you're interested.

It's been a while since this blog was started, but seeing as it's slowly growing, I'd like to join the 20s club :)


I'm 21 and working on dropping 40 lbs. (With a potential additional 10 lb loss depending on how I look and feel at that point :)

I'm trying to lose about 90 pounds of fat and gain about 20 pounds of muscle. I like Basketball and self defense, and see firearms as a means to that end but they don't excite me. I'm in florida we have the Panthers but I know nothing. I'm 28 and I guess my fitness goals are that I generally want to be a badass, I want to dunk. I feel that dunking was a key step in my development that never happened and as a result i'm stunted in several important ways. Also I want complete control over my body. Like this crazy son of a bitch

and this one
I want to be able to destroy anyone in my path.

Can I join the 20s club, too?  :nevreness:


I'm 22 and looking to lose 40 pounds. Just graduated last year. I like ultimate frisbee, Legend of Zelda, superheroes, firearms (I am a native Texan, so it kinda comes with the territory), and dark beer.


I also am not the kind to proclaim my fitness goals to the people in my life, which is why I'm on this site. I live in DC, but I don't care if you're local or far away! I'm really good at emails and texts haha.

I'm 23. Looking to gain weight and muscle and to quit smoking (which is much easier to do when you're around non-smokers). Mostly just would like someone to exercise with. I live in baltimore, and I'm down for texts, emails, whatever.

I like to run and I like whatever thing you put in front of me. I'm cool like that I guess. :P

I'll join the club if you guys are ok having a crafty veteran. I'm really just looking for camaraderie more than anything else which was my reason for joining the forum. I'm in the suburbs of Chicago. Interests are basically all things nerdy and lifting heavy stuff.


Edit: Totally forgot my age lol 23

Thanks for sharing.  That was beautiful.   Some crazy yogic transitions in the there along with lots of other body weight fitness.   Mastery of body indeed.

Total weight lose in current challenge:

Link to comment

Did someone say firearms?? It's an insane goal of mine to compete in skeet, but all the over and unders in sizes that fit my small frame.... wayyyyy out of our budget! So I stick to my hunting rifles and shotguns, although I realllly want a Ruger LCP, but I live in California :(


ANYWAY, I'm almost 26 and follow a primal way of eating and living I guess you can say. I have about 70lbs to drop, which I'm doing with food, kettlebell time, running, and yoga. My problem is staying away from almond snicker bars and whiskey. Once I have a snickers bar, it leads to other gluten free candies... and I stop exercising. 


If this group is happening, I'd love to join in!

I'd love to join.  Been a long time reader and occasional poster but I haven't been able to stick to a challenge yet or really get into the Paleo diet.  I'll be 26 next month, 5'6" and am looking to lose about 40 pounds.  I've also got some health issues that I'm trying to get under control so I'll feel better and have more energy.


Looking for motivation and camaraderie.  I'd like to start weight lifting and do yoga regularly, then try out some basic parkour moves.  I'm based in Canada at the moment but am happy to email/text, etc.
