RSers, how did you get fit?

I'm not sure if this thread is made redundant by the general fitness thread, or if it's been posted before. I did some searching and couldn't find anything.

What are your transformation stories? Maybe it will inspire and motivate people. To be honest, I'd rather hear the stories of people who were super skinny or obese and transformed their bodies, rather than those who had a leg up and were athletic their whole lives, simply because I can relate to it more.

Super skinny prior to 2012 sept. I have always been very active (playing basketball, soccer, badminton, vball), but was always very skinny (i looked like I weighed 120ish at 5'8). Decided to hit up the gym and bulk. Gained about 15-20 lbs since then, and am still working hard at it. I'm hoping to bulk another 10-15 lbs by the end of the year. Currently going to SN about 5 times a week. Going to the gym has definitely helped my performance and endurance in sports.

u go to the gym to improve on your physique. You train hard, you will notice improvements. And because you notice improvements, its what motivates you.

I started working out last summer and I wasnt serious about it. During the time, I worked out when I felt like it or when my friends wanted to. Sometimes we go and we just leave because we rather go out and chill instead.

Just when school started, I became serious on making gains. I was 120lbs, now I am 150lbs due to being persistent on going to the gym every morning before class.

I now fit into my clothes from high school.

I weighed 220 mid November 2012, by mid February 2013 I was 175 then got in a car accident and was unable to work out for awhile. Now I'm down to 165 and starting to build muscle. Biggest things for me were excercise, stopped drinking pop and eating at fast food places/eating random shit I didn't need.

I was always a fatty, especially during grade 8 and 9, almost weighing in at 200lbs. Joined rugby and wrestling during grade 9 to help lose weight. Started working out mildly in grade 10. Took it a bit more serious in grade 12 and joined local gym Raptors. I wasn't as fat as before, but I didn't get the result I was looking for (ripped, toned, etc). Unfortunately back then I ignored doing squats and deadlifts like most others.

It wasn't until 3 years later in 2010 when I took it very seriously. I started to post on forums, ask questions and re-search online to help me make changes. During this time I worked out at home and manged to lose 40 lbs within the year. The key was proper diet (nutrition) and weight training. Cleaned my diet, logged my workouts and signed up with Steve Nash Sports Club. Now playing sports and working out is part of my lifestyle. Working out and getting a good sweat on is fun for me. It's also a good stress reliever. Most importantly its my thing, for that 1-1.5 hr I get to focus on myself and improve myself physically and mentally. So kudos to anyone that is willing to make an effort to living a healthier lifestyle.

anyways I may not have the 6 pack that I've wanted atm, but my lifts are better than ever, and I'm not a fatty anymore

Great thread, the posts are a good read and very inspiring. Here is my story taken from my website:

"Gary was often known as the “skinny guy” growing up. Being hyperactive as a child, he had no trouble finding time for exercise whether it was on the basketball court, on the field or at home. However, he never gained much muscle mass. It was not until a close friend of his introduced him to weight lifting during his university years that he started to take working out more seriously. With the support of friends and coaches, Gary soon made big changes to his body composition. This taught him that hard work and dedication are a must in order to achieve the body he wanted. Even though it started off as a hobby, he continues to lift hard for his own personal satisfaction and well-being. Gary strongly believes that when someone puts their mind into something and is guided in the right direction, there is no reason why he or she cannot achieve what they want to become."

Started off as 165lb with a beer belly last May. Work 9-5 where I sit on a chair all day long. Didn't play any sports either. Ate out every other night, drank beer, smoked and so on. Decided to really change myself before I get too old. Started paying for a gym membership and because it was not cheap, it sort of motivated me to go more often to get my money's worth. Noticed I am actually making progress so I kept going. It's like a cycle.

Throughout the entire time I tried out supplements as well, such as EC stack, pre-workouts and the usual protein. Happy to say that now I'm down to 140lb, and I actually look muscular.

I've heard that much of keeping fit has to do with your frame in general. Some take little effort and can still keep fit whereas others gain a ton of weight eating quite minimal. The key is patience and im trying

started in high school. from grade 8 to grade 10, i was the skinniest guy u can find. standing just below 6 ft and weighing 110lbs,i was pretty much the brown larry king live. then during grade 10, i made a life changing decision of working out, problem was that i was a really weak ass bitch. i'm talking like too weak to bench 50 pounds kind of weak. so i made a little plan to start up the whole process.

plan was to do 3 sets of 10 for pushups, dips, pull ups, curls, and anything that i could do in the vicinity of my house. i was too insecure to lift outside of my house kuz i was so damn weak. needless to say, shit went damn well. i got into strength and condition in grade 11 and 12 and actually having some strength to move the bar was nice to see.

at the time of my graduation, i could rep out wide grip pull ups, rep out 135 bench, preacher curl 70, rep out dips, military press 90ish, and shrug a few plates. my body weight went from 110lbs in grade 10 to 160lbs in grade 12. in gr11 and 12, i focussed on reps so i would be doing allot of pyramids, 10x10s, and many high rep crap to get my body growing. sadly i never worked legs during this time like a cheeky pinner cunt

fast forward a couple years and a friend of mine gets me into the powerlifting world. this is when i finally start working my weak ass legs. at first it was a big shock as i was still doing body building shit that didnt have full range of motion or lockouts so all my lifts plummeted . then i realized that my body was far more accepting to strength training rather than body building. i was not only getting stronger pretty rapidly but i started packing some serious muscle mass.

then not until a month ago, i finally passed the 1000 pound total mark with the body weight of 215lbs. i went from a wimpy weak ass 110lbs to 215lbs in a span of 5 years. i had a shit loadda injuries n what not but it doesnt stop me from going back to the gym

as for diet, i ate anything and everything, added a whole lotta fruits n veggies and a ton of meat including the protein powders in my diet.

mindblowing inspiration overload in this thread.

Something we can all relate too, because none of us started off being big, fast or strong and everyone has their own story

I got something good in store for you guys

Not fit yet, but I'm working on it!

Find some something you truly enjoy doing and then rest will be easy. For me that was powerlifting too.

Back when I considered myself "fit" it all started with a gym membership. As others have said, the price made me go; I wanted my money's worth. I would go 5 days each week, with weekends off. This would be after 8 hours at a somewhat physical job anyway.

Once I moved for University, I lost focus, but I'm getting a new membership tomorrow and starting after work on Monday.

Time to get back to a solid 190!

I was always very skinny. I remember when I was 19, I weigh 138lbs at 6'1". I felt like crap, ate whatever I wanted and have no idea on how to diet, bodybuild, or anything like that. I could eat a cow and still maintain the same weight on my ectomorph frame. I was jealous of people with natural good genes and thought this is pretty much what I will be for the rest of my life.

A friend introduced me to the gym and I thought ah.h..might as well try it out. What do I have to lose. I started bench pressing 85lbs and was struggling. LOL. After about 8-12 months I hit 155lbs and I felt great! I wasnt as scrawny as I used to be, but still looked thin under my clothes.

I kind of left the gym for years due to school/work/gf etc. Then last year I was about to get married, my fiance and I signed up for a gym to get in shape. I was 155 at the time. My goal was to get bigger, so I started researching on how to do that. I started eating a lot more and supplementing with lots of home made protein/weight gainer shakes and push harder at the gym. I now weight in at 176 with approx 10% body fat. My goal is to hit 185, so I am almost there and feeling great!

For me, It was drinking/eating out.

I did it to excess for about 4 years. Spending a lot of time at Guu, Kintaro, etc.

I ballooned from 190lbs to about 235. Last April I got pissed off and decided to stop. So the first thing I did was:

Cut out beer.

Just that with some minor diet changes, I lost 15lbs alone in the first month. Then in May 2012 I started to go to the gym, for rehab a car accident injury, and just did a lot of cycling/eliptical/rowing machine.

In June 2012 I started playing as a goalie in ball hockey, 3 times a week along with the gym 2-3 times a week.

By February of this year, I was at 183lbs. I went from a size 48 suit to size 42. L-XL shirts to a M, and from 36-38 waist to 34.


BUT. Had a really shitty breakup in mid february, so started drinking and eating out again.....now I'm at 194..... =(((

Cutting it out at the end of this month again and going back to circuit training for hockey (I'm now playing on ice).

Moral of it all?

Don't drink so much beer. Don't eat so much shit. Run/bike/swim a couple times a week.

You'll be good.

nothing too crazy to report but i was about 185 (all time high) two years ago and never active at all, now down to 150 (all time low since highschool)
the first 20-25lbs was easy but the last 10 were not. took a lot of calorie counting and running 3-4x a week to get to where i am. now im addicted to running, so i think i'll be just fine.
