If I am not working or doing homework, you will undoubtedly find me in the gym. Since I was young I have always had an interest in working out primarily due to the sports I played. I went through a period of time when I was 300lbs and was a power lifter focusing on lifting extreme weights…not the most flattering time of my life. Now, my goals have changed to a healthy lifestyle and bodybuilding style of lifting.
The Community feel
I was first introduced to BodySpace by one of my friends who is a competitive bodybuilder. I had heard that the site had great articles and member posts on new meal plan ideas, supplement guides, workout routines and equipment. The main draw to this bodybuilding community was not just the new ideology being shared, but the opportunity to meet other lifters of all ages and experience.
How it can help you
In this community you can share you goals, your workout plan, supplements you take and get real feedback from community members. For example, my goal is to get to 8.5-9% body fat this summer. Other members can see my goals and can share their ideas and help by suggesting meal plans and different workouts. I will never consider myself an expert at anything I do, especially on the topic of working out but having this community of 10 million plus members I can be confident I can find answers to any question I have from subject experts.
Is it for everyone?
No, I do not think this site is for everyone as living a fit life isn’t for everyone. It is a personal choice but if you want to get healthy or just live an active life this is a site I definitely would recommend! You set your goals and they will help you reach them!
