How old do you have to be to go to the gym? I was just wondering because I thought gyms were for adults?F


Hey KitKate963, mhmm I think it depends with every gym. Maybe if you go with an adult you'll be able to get in. I would make a list of all your local gyms and call and ask. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Mod Mod Mod When I run I get tired and out of breath so quickly. How can I run longer and feel better aftr running insteae of being out of breath and cramping thanks sooo much!!!!!!

Hey girlie,

That just means you're not as "in shape" as you'd like to be! Gradually add longer distances to your running routine - stick with it and make sure you run often. For example, next week add one more lap around the track. As you get used to running that distance, increase it again a little - by another lap or two. You'll push yourself and get yourself ready to run longer without getting as tired! Smile

MOD MOD MOD Whats a rowing machine? Thanks!

Hey girl,

It's a piece of exercise equipment that mimics the action of rowing a boat, like being on the crew team. Lots of crew teams use them to practice and it's a great way to get a cardio/arm/shoulder work out!

Got anything for bikers? It's too cold to run out here, and the nearest pools and gyms cost a whole lot.

im not really much of any of these, are there any good cardio workouts that could help get rid of fat, for volleyball players??
if there are none, what is the best exercise for burning fat??



Hey girly! You could always do something fun, like jumping rope or hula hooping... both great fat-burning and toning cardio exercises. Or, you could do a dance DVD, like salsa dancing!

okay so i don't have a treadmill, and i think running is okay once i get into a routine. i live in Minnesota, so during the winter and early spring it's hard to get out and go for a run. any suggestions?? thanks (:

Hey girl,

You can always join a gym or a YMCA with a family member or friend.  If that's not an option, try some of the workout DVDs that are available at stores like Target or Walmart!  They are fun and will get your heart pumping!

MOD I NEED HELP!!!!! I have a fat stomach. I bought this rally cute expensive bikini and short shorts to wear in the Summer. I'm starting to think it was a waste of my money since I don't want to wear it because I have a huge stomach. Is there anyway I can get a nice flat stomach by July? I would be totally dedicated to any workout if it means I can get a flat stomach.



Hey chica! Check out this tummy workout Smile

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD what's a good exercise to do to get more stamina?



Hey girly! Pretty much any cardio exercise, if you do it often enough, will increase your stamina. Maybe try talking, biking, or if you can, running. Start out small, and then add more time each time that you do it Smile

I'm a gymnast and when I run I get really tired for like the first 30 seconds! I really want to work my cardio, because my friend can run the whole p.e. mile without stopping. What are good ideas to boost up my cardio?

by f21chic on 3/6/2011 2:36:09 PM


Hey guys! I would *love* if you checked out my profile; I would be happy to give (andddd receive) advice! Especially about running/cross country. Thanks so much & hope to hear from ya Smile

Wat is a good cardio workout for getting the fat off of ur stomach?

Hey girlie. Staying fit is awesome. Any cardio workout is good for you. Try running or playing some type of sport. Then, to get toned, try some ab exercises, like sit ups!

I used be a really great runner and sprinter. A couple of years ago, I got into a accident and my knee hasn't been good at all. My injury still hurts but its been 3 years since the accident and I want to get back into track season. I need to be in runners shape. Any ideas of how I can get ready for the season without killing my knee or my legs? Thanks so much!


Hey girlie! Before you jump into it, make sure you get the okay from your doctor. If he says it's fine, talk to him about ways to gradually get back into it without stressing your knee.

Hey, I really want to stay in shape but I have exercise induced asthma so when I run or do things like that I get crazily out of breath, light headed, and in one case passed out. Do you have any suggestions on exercises I can do with my asthma? Thanks Laughing


Hey girlie, I'm not sure you might need to consult your doctor about whats appropriate for your condition.

I don't really fall under any of these categories. Can you give me some ideas for "at home" workouts? I mean, my definetion of a "workout" is dancing to a whole CD with my buds, or rollerblading through the house(:

MOD!MOD! I am hurt but i still want to stay in shape how can I do this without it hurting even more or should I just take a little break for awhile. Also I think im a little on the bigger side but everyone tells me i am to skinny im so confuzed what do i do

Hey chica. You are your hardest critic, so what you think about yourself is usually different from how others see you. If you are hurt, you should take a break from exercising. There are ways around this though. For example, if you hurt your leg, then you can still do ab and arm exercises. Try to avoid working out the area that is hurt. Good luck!
