    I have a membership to 24 hr fitness and the training sessions are pretty spendy, so I was wondering if there is a website that will help you lay out a monthly training plan (aerobic and resistance) along with a diet plan? I was hoping the monthly fee would be less than the personal training sessions. Any help is appreciated.

    Quick search on Google doesn't reveal anything but you may be onto a nice business idea?!?

    Men's Health has a lot of good info depending on what you want to do.

    What are your goals? Gain muscle, lose weight, build endurance?

    I am working on losing weight and toning muscle. My goal is 225 by race season in May for DH. I just started the p90x program and it's an ass kicker. After the first 90 days, I will start the double days program.

    Try bodybuilding.com , good sight, not all about bodybuilding. Check out the section on transformations.

    Are you training for something bike-related or just to be fit?

    Thanks for the site, looks killer. I am actually asking for my wife (easier to ask from 1st person perspective). She wants to tone up and lose some weight

    I got cut the week our daughter was born. I figured it was best for humanity.

    <edit> the idea of her not getting pregnant again helped to increase the frequency as well.
