I’m afraid to go to the gym.
The thought of walking into any place packed with people sweating, swearing and grunting leaves my stomach in knots. Worse, I absolutely HATE the feeling that people are watching me when I fail on bench press.
(Yeah I see the irony of FitNate being scared of the gym. Go figure)
I know it can be intimidating as hell to step foot into the gym. You’d much rather hide under a staircase and munch on Cheetos than enter the Church of Iron.
Unfortunately, you’ll not find your sexy destiny while cowering in a dusty cupboard — unless you happen to be Harry Potter.
Hence I decree: it’s time for you to overcome your fear of going to the gym, and get you some sweet sweet gains. Continue reading “Overcome Your Fear of Going To The Gym – Part 1”
So I have a friend, who I’ll call Ashley.
Ashley had an awesome figure, and decided she’d pick up running to maintain it. At first everything was great. Her endurance improved, climbing stairs became a walk in the park, and all her friends praised her for choosing to run.
Then… Crap happened.
A few weeks into her running program, Ashley checked herself out in the mirror. Her eyes widened as she noticed stretch marks appearing where there were none before. Worst of all, she was losing fat and muscle in all the WRONG places.
Horrified, she stopped running, and has feared running ever since.

Yet Ashley’s story makes you wonder…

WOAH there ladies.
It has been brought to my attention that a number of you have been deliberately sabotaging your fitness efforts. Indeed, the squats and donkey kicks are fantastic, but you’re doing yourself a great disservice by neglecting your upper body.

Working out sucks.
You’re so busy, so frazzled, so unmotivated that even the thought of working out feels like a ridiculously unfair burden.
It’s so tempting to toss the training and nutrition away, and be consumed by work, relationships, or Netflix on the couch. If you’re not seeing the results you want, it becomes even easier to throw in the towel. “I was going to be fat, anyway,” you tell yourself.
When workout laziness strikes and exercise becomes a chore, here’s a technique to get you back on the narrow path to glorious gains. Continue reading “Combat Workout Laziness with This Unexpected Technique”

Nathaniel Christie: FitNate
You stumble out of bed. It’s 6 in the morning, and God damn you want to sleep. Still, you’ve got work to do, so you shuffle down to the kitchen to get some grub. You open the fridge, blinking at the glaring blue light, and reach for the Frosted Flakes on the third shelf.

Suddenly, an explosion rocks your world as the Calorie Cops leap through your window, knock you to the floor, and backhand you into unconsciousness.
You haven’t been awake 20 minutes and you’ve already screwed up on your fat-loss goals. Continue reading “Two Common Breakfast Mistakes That Totally Screw with Your Fat-Loss”
