07-26-2011, 03:40 PM
Hello all, I am a 43 yr old guy who was a gym rat from many moons ago. I figure that its now or never (even though I know its never to late) that I get this fat, balding, but still handsome self of mine in shape. I have seen allot of fantastic looking 40+ men and women around me and I want to be one of them! Still some good tread left on these tires but Im gonna have to peal back the layers. Im 6 foot 2 inches and right at about 264 lbs. We have a gym opening any day now right around the corner and my son wants to work out to. He is 17 and just maybe he can keep me motivated and I can do the same for him. We both have smartphone s and are going to use Jefit to track our progress and keep us motivated. All the Best!!

Welcome and good luck!!
it's great to see a son and dad going together!, and if your doing the same routine i'm sure it'll cause you both to push it that bit more!
After all noone wants to be beaten by their kid, an everyone wants to beat their dad ;)

Its good to see that your going to train with your son. It will probably strengthen the bond. I started training with my son about a year ago. Its been great. Good luck.

That's great to hear! It's never too late to get going. Just don't overdo it trying to show the son that the ol' man can hang. ;)

Hello orobiller ,
Welcome to the JEFIT Community and we are glad and very appreciative that you are giving our application a try to help you get back into weight lifting/exercising once again. We know that our application will only help you further push yourself to get back into shape and keep track of both your exercising statistics and progress. The one thing that sets our app apart from everyone else is the ability to synchronize your data, keep track of all of your information, have a built in timer that will keep you on the mark for each set, and of course logging onto the JEFIT Forums and interacting with other members who share the same goals and interests as you.
These forums will provide you with great advice and our members/your fellow community members are all extremely helpful and willing to help you in any way as we are all here for the same goal, and that is to get back into shape, increase our strength, build more muscle or just have a better way to track our exercises. You probably already have noticed this by now but we are glad to have you join and hopefully you enjoy both the application and the forums.
Haha your son is going to have a run for his money when you use the application and show how much you have progressed with your workouts. As Fsny6849 stated, it will help strengthen your bond with your son (I dont have a son but when I do things with my dad it strengthens our relationship) and knowing you are both striving for a common goal in fitness and to be healthy together, it makes all the difference in the world.
We welcome you to the JEFIT Forums orobiller and if you need any help, advice, or anything at all feel free to message me or leave a post/thread here on the forums and the thousands of JEFIT Users and Community will be willing to help you as much as possible. I wish you the best of luck and can't wait to hear of your progress!
