Dalby's Motion Fitness Workout Blog

I've been a fat guy since high school. Now, I'm 28, 300 pounds, and tired of huffing my way up the stairs of the Atrium Center. Thankfully, the folks over at Motion Fitness are going to help me do something about it, and you get to follow along. See what it's like for a regular guy like me to have to learn about exercise programs, diet plans, and all the other fun stuff that comes along with getting in shape. You'll read about the hard parts, the easy parts, and hopefully you'll see that it's not so bad living right!

The Irony Of Injury

  Losing weight is not cheap. As a matter of fact, the reason most of us put on weight is because eating like crap is usually cheaper. Think about it, burgers, fries, deep... more

It Gets Easier With Time, But For Now It Still Hurts

First Days Are Never Easy
