#1  Getting Fit  20 Sep '05 at 09:37
It has come to my attention that I am hugely unfit and the season is fast approaching. How can I get fit? I have no moey to join the gym and I hate doing things in the dark. I've started swimming twice a week but I dont feel thats enough. Help.

Last time we looked at this everyone generally had the opinion thatt u didn't need to be fit or would get fit while there however I reckon tis a bonus on skiing, pulling and staying awake front as if you are fit you are gonna do more of all three.

Fcuk the gym too expensive I cycle & run that seems to do the job. Also build my arms up through excessive lifting of pint glasses

Swimming is good. Apart from that you could try girly aerobics classes or just go for a decent run a couple of times a week too without spending to much cash.

Does doing stuff in the dark make you fitter?

Doing things in groups of two or more in the dark gets you even fitter.

I meant running and cycling in the dark!!! As for the other stuff you do in the dark, it wards off the common cold apparently!

Seejay, I was expecting something along those lines but expected it from one of the old perves, not you

I dont think that was the type of activity in the dark geeky was refering to either. I reckon she does like that type of activity.

i go out on my mountain bike builds the legs up.

If you don't want to go out in the dark, buy a static bike that you can have at home you can pick them up for a tenner in the trade-it.

I would say from my A-level sports science that cycling/running in the dark would get u fitter as it gives you the chance to burn off food etc u hve eaten that day as well as using up fat and improving muscle tone etc. Thou if you get in and eat its not gonna do anymore than doing it at any other part of the day. But if you are running when it is hot u will use up more energy so I hve managed to contradict myself.

One word: NO

I think that means our advice to you is to go running in the daytime and also to wear lots of clothes to make you hotter and then to not eat any food for the rest of the day.
