Fitocracy is the Ultimate Motivation
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
This was the first motivation to get healthy. Fast forward to 2011. I weighed 187 pounds and hadn't smoked a cigarette in almost 2 years. I figured, "Hey, I'm at my goal weight, I can relax a bit". In a little over 6 months I had bloated up to 217 pounds.
That is when I found Fitocracy. I never really got into lifting weights. After browsing the community, I saw there were a lot of impressive people contributing to the site. I started reading their blogs, watching videos on Olympic and power lifting form, and seeing all the points they were getting. This was my ultimate motivation.
Today I weigh in around 200 pounds. I have more muscle on my body then I've ever had, and most of all, I actually ENJOY working out. The thrill of getting a high point workout, completing a quest, or "leveling up" was all motivation I needed.
I love Fitocracy and will be a member for life.
