  1. Hey everyone! I am new to this but in need of a lifestyle change and do not have many other options. Currently, as a college student, my diet consists of pretty much of fruit and junk food. I am 5'8 at about 140 pounds, so I am pretty slender. I do not want to necessarily lose weight, however I do want to lose fat around my belly and love handles. What kind of diet should I follow that would help me target this, but also not lose TOO much weight? Thanks everyone!
  2. New to the gym

    Hi all, I'm new to the gym and was just looking for some general pointers - apologies if these questions have been asked a million times before, feel free to point me in the direction of the answers if they have! I'm really new to the fitness in general, haven't properly exercised since I was about 13 and I am 21 now so I have very little strength or stamina. I was just wondering what the most effective way to up my fitness and gain some strength etc is? where is the best place to find workout plans and stuff? I'd also like to know if anyone has any tips on overcoming gym anxiety? I'm fine with cardio but when it comes to weights/conditioning I always get to scared to do anything because I know I'll be doing it wrong so I'll look stupid. Thanks!
  3. Dear cycling fans, I'm a student from the Netherlands studying: sportmarketing and management at Hogeschool Rotterdam. I’m researching the possibilities of a new (virtual) indoor cycling program that you can use at home. For this research I created a survey regarding the needs and benefits it can bring to cycling fans. This survey will only take 1-2 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey you can choose to become the test panel for a new indoor - cycling product. Be assured that all answers you provide will be kept in the strictest confidentiality. The link to the survey: Thank you in advance. With kind regards, Niels

  8. So ive been "on a diet" for literally my entire life, but following a recent diagnosis with PCOS i figured this may have been the key to why i never lost weight... I was also told i was anaemic so i was looking for ways to up my iorn intake so that i wouldnt need supplements. So far ive lost about a stone and a half by cutting down on carbs and taking up an hour of cardio but my weight loss halted completely about a month ago and while ive kept up the exersice ive gone back into some bad habits. Surprisingly i havent gained any weight back. [The thought process was that id probably cut my calories too low and was just feeding until it showed an increase to let me know my metabolism had kickstarted again...] I could really do with some tips for how to progress in a steady but effective manner. My work is very demanding timewise, once im home for the day i only have 2/3 hours left before its time to sleep again so i really dont have time for preparing meals so ive been relying heavily on things i can make at quantity on a sunday and freeze and soup or just buying something on the fly [which isnt always the best but sometimes you get bored of eating the same four meals] Im lookiing for meal recopies that dont require 5 million vegetables that are all hard to find and cost a bomb and two hours to cook and that can be made in advance, even if just making it for dinner and having an extra portion for lunch the next day. Also if there are other things i can add to my exercise routine, I have my hour of aqua aerobics, and an exercise bike that i will be doing an hour or two of a week and im thinking of adding a dumbbell set or two in while making some of these recopies [ie while paps cooking on the timer] I have to keep it light but effective, im heavy set so anything vigorous is going to knacker me out too fast for me to be able to keep it going for anything more than a few minutes, once im not carrying around an extra adult human being of weight i can obviously do more but right now its just about getting the weight off healthily and building some strength...
  9. New to fitness and need help

    Okay, so the title isn't 100%, I'm not new to fitness as such as I know the basics and have a decent understanding however I have just been accepted into the army. Yeah I know, great right, however my fitness is far from great, I was fit enough to pass the constant tests and assessments but I want more. I'm 5'8 and weigh in at 77.5kg, I have around a month before I start training so whatever I can do from now to then is perfect. I am a man wth great determination but I have no idea how I can achieve what I want. In a perfect world I would like to be able to run faster for longer and to have less excess fat and more muscular endurance needed for the various bodywieght tests and long runs and walks with weighted backpacks. all help would be greatly appreciated and I hope I will get many friendly users offering feedback, any questions for me please feel free to ask.
