Motivation & Support / Why does everyone want to loose weight?

Its frustrating seeing everyone say they want to loose weight on a fitness app. Loosing weight does not mean you are fit and can sometimes be more harmful depending on if you are losing weight or losing fat.

If you are being fit it means that you are going according to your body type not your weight. I suprise most people when I say that when I weight 160 lbs I was miserable and kept getting sick because it was not healthy for my body type. I'm currently 180 lbs and have more energy and run 12miles a week.

So please don't say that you want to loose weight but that you want to be healthy and fit for your body type. Embrace your body type and don't try to be anyone but yourself. :)

Randy. There are 3 body types. Endomorph, ectomorph and mesomorph. Check out www.bodybuilding.com/fun/becker3.htm It will bring up a link where you answer a few questions and it will tell you your body type.

Motivation & Support / Back exercises

I run a lot and have recently been having my lower back muscles giving me issues. Even after changing my shoes and adding yoga to my routine is there anything else that might help?

Welcome Wagon / Running

Hi I've just started running long distance in the last few months. Any suggestions on a good shoe that doesn't break down as easily? I've gone through 2 pair in 4 months
