    What sort of exercise do you do? I'm a bit of an obsessive when I get going... Spin / Body Pump / Body Combat / Aquaerobics / Gym / Abs Class / Swimming / Kettlebells Class
    How often?
    Spin 2-3 times a week
    Body Pump 2-3 times a week
    Body Combat twice a week
    Kettlebells class twice a week
    Abs class, a swim and a gym session (including elliptical, strength training, rowing machine, stationary bike) all once a week.
    How long for?
    Spin, Combat and Pump are all an hour. Kettlebells is 25-35 minutes. Abs is 25-30 minutes. I swim for at least an hour when I go, and my gym session is about 2 hours (including weights and lots of faffing around inbetween machines!).

    I also walk for at least half an hour each day, more at weekends (I don't drive).

    What sort of exercise do you do? I use the gym. I go on the stepper thing, the bike and the treadmill. I go on the cross trainer too if I'm feeling brave haha. Still not got into the swing of that. I'm having a session with a trainer today so hopefully they'll give me some pointers on what I should do for strength and stuff :)

    How often? I want to go three times a week. At the moment it is like two. This will be the first week that I'll go 3 times :)

    How long for? 50 minutes - 10 minutes on the stepper, 20 on the bike and 20 on the treadmill.

    Kirsty - maybe invest in a kettlecise dvd and a kettlebell? Some of the dvds come with a free bell - this one doesn't but has good reviews: Power Body: Kettlebell Bootcamp DVD 2009 US Import: Amazon.co.uk: Angie Miller: Film & TV and you could start off with a light bell and work your way up as you get stronger. It'll also help boost your metabolism because it's strength training (and I remember reading you were having issues with that due to your thyroid), as well as cardio ^^. 3kg or 4kg is a good starter weight for your bell.

    I'm really lucky with my gym - it's the local sports centre, so I pay 36pounds a month, get unlimited classes (apart from yoga which I don't go to anyway), unlimited gym and unlimited swimming / aqua classes. That said, our local pool is pretty manky and closes when it feels like it - twice last two week I turned up for it to be closing to the public at no notice - once for a kid's fun session, and the other time for local club practise! But the sports centre is brilliant.

    I can't squash the gym into my routine, i'm a single parent to 2 little girls, and i work and go to uni.

    I walk the 7 flights of stairs into work, 3 days per week, i miss a step all the way and it really poofs me out! I can do it in a minute and 6 seconds now...and in HIGH HEELS :D

    I have got a nice little routine at night, i get the kids in bed for 7:30pm, then do a dvd, ranging from 20 minutes to over an hour depending on how i'm feeling. Then i have a bath and do some uni work (revision at the mo, boooo). Stops me snacking at night because i'm busy, i am missing loads of good tv though!

    I have built up quite a collection since having my eldest, i have a 4 of the Pump it Up dvd's, 30DS, 2 of Davina's, Nadia Sawalha's is fantastic. I have just ordered a cheapy Tae-Bo and one by The Firm called The 500 Calorie Workout. I do love exercise, not the thought of it, but once i'm up and running it's great and afterwards it feels so good!

    I go to the gym about three/four times a week and do stretching, 25 mins of solid cardio, weight resistance reps and then I always chuck in another 15 mins intense walking in the treadmill, cool down and stretch. At home I'm a bit of a Wii fit girl! I do 30 solid mins of free stepping whilst watching tv totally takes my mind off of it, I also do the rhythm boxing for my arms... I have a serious bingo wing issue!!! X
