Who needs a gym to lose that belly?

Just eat sensibly and do regular moderate levels of exercise such as walking 9k steps a day. The weight will fall off you....

Anybody can do it If they want (serious medical conditions excepted) you just need to keep it up and don't make it boring.... take the weekend off.

I have a pal that did that. He used an app called Couch-to-Triathlon to manage his fitness from none existent to enough to do a triathlon. It worked, he smashed it. Fair play.

Sign up to an event, be it a 5km, a 10km or a sprint triathlon and tell everyone. I did this last year and aside from the financial issue of the entry cost the fact that others know you've signed up spurs you on psychologically. Well, it did for me anyway. My brother in-law laughing at me when I told him of my first triathlon runs through my mind every time I train...

You'll love it mate. Get a couple of months under your belt for fitness then hit some local trails. This website is decent for finding trails:

https://www.trailforks.com/region/hampshire/

A word of warning; it's addictive, and can be bloody expensive. Bit like fishing lol.

That's what I'm looking at doing on a maintain bike. As like all the lanes and so on. Unfortunately I got a phone call from the doctor. So I've got to do it now and quickly.

Some good advice given. Also, do you have someone to go to the gym with? When I joined up a few years back I used to enjoy it, going with a mate of mine. But when she stopped going it got a bit boring, and I stopped going myself not long after that. You seem to push each other along which I found helped a lot. I a aged to drop a stone and a half in 4 months, unfortunately now I've stopped that's all come back, and an extra stone too

Good advice. You need to enjoy it to make it bearable.
I tried the gym...... boring, gave up.... tried running.... boring, gave up...... got a mountain bike, bloody loved it. I visit trails and bike parks all over the show whenever I can now, and just head off down the local bridleways for fitness.

My advice is, either do something you enjoy, running, rowing, boxing or cycling. Or if you are going to go to the gym and not enjoy it then you need to set goals and reach them.

The goal can be anything like run 5k in x or loose 20lb in x. If you don't enjoy the workout then you must enjoy the results otherwise you will lose interest fast.

Excellent on trying to gain some level of fitness..


There are no gyms where I live,however after an injury I decided to up my inner core strength ...what I do ,and I works for me is a mixture of Yogic and Calisthenics,these exercises are `portable`you can do them anywhere,i do mine at work,fishing anywhere that's fairly quiet for around ten minutes...

I start off with some simple stretches ,these were shown to me by a deep core muscle specialist,once these simple exercises are learnt they are a massive benefit..


however the Calisthenics ,you already have all you need around you every day stuff like a chair,park bench...bars anything and everything you can think of can be used....I start off with some slow push ups ,same again elevated on a chair ,I use a bar for pull ups ,walls for nose touching push ups on the balls of your feet...my ten litre bait bucket,plus bait inside held close to my chest for squats Ö.basically you are using your own body mass ,to increase your core strength....plus I walk a lot every day with my dog....over the fields across the cliffs just being active,i eat a lot of fish and so on...Thing is ,it wont cost you a penny ,all is needed is mental self belief...


it has really helped me ,I do these in the morning and before bedtime...like I mentioned I went to a injury specialist first ,and he taught me the basics......
