Hello folks, I am planning to begin to seriously get into very good physical shape very soon (due to the career aspirations) but I don't know where to start! Before college, my metabolism took care of most of this, and once the freshman 15 hit (go Gators ) that all went down hill. I have never really seriously and consistently worked out, set up a diet, or anything like that. Is there a good resource online that could help? I am very weary of hiring one of the trainers at the gym...it just looks a little too much like a scam, but whatever. If that is a good way to go, yall just let me know. I don't know if this helps any, but I am working at a very physically demanding temp job while my police application goes through, so I'm always lifting heavy stuff, sweating, drinking a lot of water (I go through at least 9 cups a day) and constantly moving around. I have noticed that I have dropped in weight a little since I got the job, but not nearly as much as I'd like to. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank yall!
