Diarrhea is a good way to lose weight. I follow this program.

I'm looking for some form of fitness which has a social element to it. I've thought of gym classes and yoga but it seems like people just go to the class then leave straight after with little socialising involved (fair enough). Dance classes are too intense, I went to one and absolutely hated it. Any suggestions?

^ I find gym classes the most sociable. I rarely attend the gym now. If you make an effort to talk to people they will generally respond.

I love classes. I could go to 7 a week if I had the time. My favourites are body pump, aerobics, and boxing classes.
Since moving I'm going to change my gym to one more locally.

In the past Ive been a bit of a council gym snob.

Iím a relative beginner to weight lifting. Determined to bulk up, going to be using Greyskull LP program to focus on progressive overload with compound lifts.

Anyone else bulking up?

All forms of exercise make you feel good, definitely make you want to sleep at night. What I haven't seen in this thread is any insight into why; a) moving your life in a more valued direction, meeting your need to status & b) it simply makes it easier to believe the good bits about yourself.

Wonderful as exercise is, I fear a lot of people have got this idea that it's a chore, something that has to be endured, to 'make themselves less a loser' vs. 'I'm great but this will add to it'. I fear a lot of the motivation comes from the former idea which is a reason why people don't keep physically-active; note I use 'physically-active' instead of 'exercise', there's a good reason.

Now people might see exercise as a 'chore' (possibly not helped by bad memories of PE lessons), this is what needs to be turned around. Shouldn't there be more focus on getting over these obstacles? This is why I think the emphasis on running and gyms is doing a poor job of reducing obesity. Physical activity is so much broader than this and there is so much more than that.

Can't help but throw in thoughts.
