Found this on reddit/r/fitness like a lot of others and was pretty pumped up about trying it.
I'm 29 y/o, approx 175lbs, 6'0'', classic "skinny fat". I haven't seriously exercised in a couple years due to several factors I won't get into, but the prevailing one was that because I stayed skinny I was "fine".
This couldn't be further from the truth as I now feel sluggish, tired, and weak way too often for someone who is my age. The only exercise I get really is lifting music equipment around at gigs. So yeah I have the standard musician's build.
Simplefit seemed like a good place to start because I know that I'm pretty weak and didn't want to embarrass myself in a gym just yet. :o I researched the program and others like it, made some tough decisions about my diet habits (no deep fried, no mayo, lots of cottage cheese and salad, fruits and veggies for snacks), got excited, and ran off to get a chin up bar and some new workout clothes.

The last few pull ups became very difficult and I had to switch to assisted mode, but I didn't give up. I know that at first the progress will be slow but it feels good to be back in action and I'm looking forward to sticking it out for a long time.
