What's your biggest fitness achievement to date?

Monday, May 30, 2011

What's your biggest ever fitness achievement to date, and how did you do it? That's the question I'd love to hear your answers to.......

For me it was getting up to 185 lbs in weight, more muscular (12% body fat) last year. i'm a 42 year old male, 6'1" (185cm) tall. Right now I'm around 13.5% body fat, and 182lbs . Most people's goal is to lose weight, mine is always to gain weight, as long as it's lean muscular weight (with the proviso that I don't exceed 15% body fat maximum).

I achieved this through 3 times a week weights (1 hour sessions), and tennis once a week (90 mins), and 2 cardio sessions (20 mins each), and a couple of core workouts (20 mins each).

So what's your biggest achievement and how did you get there?

    Well done on increasing your weight Domenic

    I managed to do a 5k run yesterday in under 34 minutes - my last 5k was 42 minutes, so a real improvement!
    I'm now ready to up the training and get better, faster and work towards a 10k in November - I know it's achievable now
    For me, who despised running at school and was always at the back, running is enjoyable and I've realised I can do it and get better. A real confidence booster and I've also discovered I inspire other people (me!?!)

    My big fitness achievement is my agoraphobia being less intrusive in my life. As I started walking everywhere to lose weight, it's now got to the point that I can do more "normal" things as if I ever feel I'm stuck, I know I can always walk away, wherever I am.

    Not much for fitness achievements, but I didn't really have goals to start with :)
