    I went about the same time as you and felt well rough afterwards.

    Apparently you can go and tone up which I plan to do when I return from hols.

    I suppose when you think about it on avereage i burn about 200 calories on cardio machines which whilst on VLCD is quite alot out of daily intake.

    I will try a bit of toning or some swimming this week.

    Really be careful at a gym guys!

    Ideal on VLCD's are toning, swimming, walking, pilates, yoga and generally being active.

    You haven't the energy to go banging it out on a treadmill / exercise bike etc so please take care!

    westhills I STILL mean it!

    I go to JJB gym 3 x per week, and have a pogramme which is reviewed every three weeks. My body fat oercentag is measured and I have only positive things to say about it. I am a lot stronger, and feel marvellous. As always, enlist help, and do whatvthey tell you!
    I do cross trainder 10 mins, rowing machine 5 mins, treadmill cross country 15 mins, bike up hills 15 mins, and 8 lots of diffeent wights. I also do 6 lengths of swimming. I do all thins 3 x per week. Ann x
    PS, on the days I don't to the gym. I do 1 mile at 3.6 mph on my treadmill at home.

    I am a big fan of trying to make your normal day more active rather than going down the gym. My pedometer rarely shows under 10,000 steps these days and I want to increase that still further.

    This way I don't need to think about trying to work activity into my day because on the days I forget I won't be as active and after I lose the weight I'll be more likely to put the weight back on.

    I think the gym will be useful for toning and classes as long as it is not relied on for general fitness.

    I have found the LL resistence band great for toning at home even though it stinks!

    I go to David LLoyd gym 3 x per week.:D

    Once with a personal trainer for an hour.

    Once to go swimming.

    Once to go into the gym to go on the bike/treadmill/cross trianer and toning machines.

    Also use my Slendertone belt every night for an hour! I WILL have abs of steel...I WILL I WILL I WILL!!!! :rolleyes:

    I've never noticed a great loss or gain if I sweat it out at the gym, but as IceMoose said, you must be careful! Don't overwork your bodies. Do the exercises which suit your lifestyles!

    After i went the other day and made myself feel a bit peculiar i took it easier than usual and so far i feel great.

    I aim to go 3 times this week, the wedding i'm going to is getting closer.

    Don't overdo it though and keep your water up!
