A bit about yourself: I still go to school. Started lifting weights in year 9 (2004) because my friends were doing it. They stopped about 2 months later, I kept going for a while. I lifted wieghts on and off for a few years. It was only last year when I lifted more frequently, but still ate junk. It was only 2 weeks ago when I started eatting healthy and I'm hoping to see a change in my body. I never deadlifted or squatted until I read the pinned threads. I never realised how important these workouts are and should've done them all along.

Where do you train?: Fitness First, Glen Waverley
How long have you been lifting?: Since Dec 06
What are your short-term goals?: Toned all over.
Long term goals?: Become big enough so that people look and say "That's guy's big" but not big enough where it looks gross.
A bit about yourself: Well I was at one stage weighing 113kgs at my peak and was quite overweight. I decided to do something about it and so I thought I would stick it out and see what happens. 12 months later I was down 30kgs and quite slim and physcially fit. I was basically running 6 nights a work for 30 minutes at a time. I realised then that I wanted to start going to the gym and build muscle. I have been going since December and am finding that I quite enjoy the gym. The only downside I am finding is that it's harder to watch what you eat when you are weight training because your body craves food all the time and because I have not been as careful as I could be, I have put on 10kgs. I would say maybe half of that is muscle. In a year's time I plan on being a body shape that I am happy with so hopefully I can get there.

Height/Weight: 6'1" / 95kg
Goals: Short term to look better and lift better than a mate who has decided to use anabolics, and long term to be a fit and as strong as i can be, and be able to maintain that indefinatly.
About me: Love my cars, weights, skiing and of course my missus. Always looking forward to the snow in the winter, and the beach in the summer. Always looking for new ways to generally improve in the areas im passionate about.

Height: 189cm 6'2
Location: Melbourne, Vic
Where do you train?: I used to train at Spartans, Fitness First Knox, Wantirna Health & Squash (now Genesis), Genesis Ringwood & at home.
How long have you been lifting?: I don't train at all now due to a car accident, but I'm on the mend Before that I had been lifting for 6 years on and off training 5+ nights a week.
What are your short-term goals?: To lose a little bit of weight and tone up. Most importantly I want my health & fitness back.
Long term goals?: To be healthy and fit again. Previous to the accident I had turned all my weak points into my strong points so I was content.
A bit about yourself: I use to be pretty skinny at about 72kg when I first started out. But I shot up to 103kg over the years by working out really hard and eating and sleeping well. I was 'too' big for my liking even though I was toned and this weight just put extra stress on my joints when going for runs. I decided I wanted to lose some weight and would have to sacrifice a lot of muscle to do this. At my physical & fitness best I was 82kg when I was in training for the Army. But someone decided to crash into me and write my car off. I've only just come out of physio so I'm taking things easy until my body is able to get back into fitness.
Best thing about going to the gym is that I built a really good, strong & toned physique over the years and at any time it will only take me 3-4 months to get this back once my body has mended. Getting there is the hard part though! Best advice I can give is to buy the Encyclopedia of Body Building by Arnold Schwarzenegger and follow the whole book religously. This way you won't go wrong on form, diet, sleep etc etc. I would have reached my goals so much quicker by following this book and not making so many mistakes along the way. Knowledge = Power!
