Geek Fit: The P90X Workout Experience

My biggest challenge to getting fit has always been just overcoming the pure boredom I experience when doing normal workouts. I have never liked the gym, weights are heavy, running is lame, and the people in workout videos make me feel stupid. That is probably why cycling was my key to success. Still, it’s hard to dispute the millions of before and after images of people that spend 90 days doing this crazy P90X workout and end up looking like a whole new person (or half a new person depending on your viewpoint). Whenever someone talks about a “workout” that involves watching a video, I can’t help but think about the legend himself, Richard Simmons. Growing up, Simmons’ curly afro and short shorts represented all I knew about fitness. Eventually, as I got into shape, I realized that to really hit the goal I had set for myself, I would need to try something new.

Geek Fit: Ride Bikes!

If you have stumbled across my twitter account, chased me to any of the other sites I contribute to, stopped to look at the image attached to my profile-of-Doom, or taken a close look at the banner for this little series, you might begin to deduce that I am into cycling. It’s the truth, I am a lycra-wearing, two-wheeling, bell-ringing, cycling fool. In truth, cycling is really the only sport I actually care about, though a few years ago that wasn’t the case. When it came time to get in shape I decided that a bike would be my means to a healthier life. Cycling is a low impact activity, which is important to a bigger dude because just the act of carrying all your weight can present challenges to various work-outs like running. If you are really interested in the play by play of that story I created a Tumblr account when I started riding and chronicled everything up until a short while ago. It’s fun to re-read now and hear the excitement in my words over riding 10 miles and then to see the transformation to riding 100 miles a year later, and eventually to my first race earlier in 2012.
