In July, a friend invited me to an outdoor men-only fitness workout. I was going to be out of town for a few weeks, so I asked him to remind me when I got back. Four weeks ago, he saw me and reminded me again, so I decided to join him.

Today, I start my 4th week of meeting early in the morning for a 45 minute workout with a group of men. I feel better for the effort, my endurance is increasing even if my weight isn't decreasing (yet).

Every session is peer led; they decide the workout. It is generally a mixture of running and exercises - push ups, squats, jumping jacks, etc.

Today... run for 1/2 mile, then the real run begins.

In a field about 100 yards long, he had a series of sand bags weighing between 32 pounds and 60 pounds. We were told to partner up. Then the first partner went to the 1/2 mark on the field and 'bear crawled' to the end, did 20 'burpees', 20 sit ups and 'bear crawled' back to the center. The other partner lifted the bag to chest level and threw it... again and again until they reached the 1/2 mark. Meet your partner, switch roles.

When your partner takes the sand bag, they throw it until the reach the starting line, switch bags and start throwing it back to the center.

Repeat until you've worked through all of the bags.

My motivation? A former co-worker had two heart attacks and died this Spring; another co-worker had a heart attack that resulted in by-pass surgery - he returned to work on Monday.

What is your motivation and work out?
