When I was young and foolish, actually at age thirty five, I started spending three hours a day, or more, six day a week working out. My whole purpose was to turn my skinny body into a body beautiful. I even went the steroid route. After accomplishing what I wanted I walked out of the gym one day at age fifty and didn’t return for eleven years. I retired at age sixty one lost forty five pounds and began to workout again at a gym five mornings a week, for one hour, to do a cardiovascular workout. Now six years later I continue the same cardiovascular workout and I HATE every minute of it but continue ONLY for health reasons.

Working-out just makes me feel great… even though at this stage in life I am trying to preserve to the best of my ability the muscle I have left. I do a combination of weights and aerobics (three sessions of each a week on average) and I keep a journal of exactly each exercise I have done, how many sets, amount of weight, etc. Somehow writing it all down gives it all a feeling of organization which helps to spur me on. What makes it somewhat easier for me concerns the fact that I have enough space at home so I don’t have to trek on down to the gym.

 

Still, if I ever feel just “plain out of it” or even depressed after a bad day a good workout without doubt gets me back into the swing of things… it seems to get my endorphins flowing and produces an effect similar to a drug induced high… Hence, the more I workout the better I feel. Plus I have feelings of guilt if I don’t workout on a regular basis. So in the final analysis for me working-out can be considered a “guilty pleasure” of sorts…

 

Incidentally, I always try to have a vigorous workout with weights just prior to a hookup… I usually do so in the hotel gym whether I am doing an in-call or and out-call. It puts me in the perfect mental frame of mind and also gives me that “pumped up feeling” that gets me geared up for the action. While some might feel that I am unnecessarily expending energy it seems to have the exact opposite effect. In essence it makes me feel as though I would be able to conquer the world.

If I don't hit the gym early in the morning I feel fat all day. I know this is totally subjective, because I'm reasonably height-weight proportional, but somehow working out wakes me up and helps me feel more fit. I get it out of the way early in the morning and feel ready to take on the day. I've been doing it on average 6 days a week since about the time I hit 40 - Now 56+ and still looking reasonably good, knock on wood!!!

I am naturally pretty skinny, so from age 21 to 40, I worked out regularly at the gym, so I would look good at the bars and sex clubs. From 40 to 50, I didn't go to the gym at all, because I figured it no longer mattered what I looked like--I wasn't gonna get much anyway. At 50, I started working out regularly at the gym again, this time because I knew it was good for my health. But I found it really boring. Then at 62, I discovered that I could get many of the same health benefits from playing tennis every day, which was a lot more interesting. I still belong to a gym, and go occasionally, but only when I can't play tennis.

I love cardio but could never get into lifting weights. I was doing 45 minutes 4 times a week on a eliptical then about a month ago I bought a mountain bike. I ride the bike 4 times a week for 5 miles each time

I do it to keep an eye on Derek. I especially love to watch from a distance when he has these cute young straight guys coming up to him, asking for training ("How'd you get those huge traps?") and diet ("How'd you get so ripped?") tips, while they practically worship him with their roaming eyes. He eats it up, and I love to watch him in his element, dispensing gym-rat wisdom. :p

 

P.S. Just yesterday, at the Gold's Gym in Tampa, Derek was showing yet another cute 20-something guy how to workout. This time, it was tricep pushdowns, and Derek was standing behind him, cock pushed up to his ass, holding his arms to show him the correct form. It was all so "innocent," except when he stepped away it was also obvious that Derek was hard. I assume the boy enjoyed it because he didn't pull away... }(

Of course working-out at a gym, which gives one the opportunity to ogle all the “hot properties” who train there, certainly is a plus factor. In addition to offering visual encouragement, I also recall reading that it helps to produce natural substances that help make muscles (as well as certain other body parts) grow faster. That is one reason why (as I noted above) that I always hit the hotel gym prior to a hookup. Additionally, that is one reason why I always stay at the same hotel while in NYC… as its gym is not only well-equipped, but also seems to have quite a number of hot guys (including personal trainers) frequenting the establishment… as it is an independent heath cub facility in addition to being available to hotel guests.

 

Of course, there are downsides to this… on several occasions the guys who were working-out in the facility proved to be hotter than the guy I eventually hooked up with… which can be a real downer… However, fortunately that has not proven to be the case of late… and especially as regards my last hookup… where the guy came directly from the gym as well… and it proved to be a quite satisfying encounter indeed.

I don't especially like going to the gym but do so in order to lower blood pressure and to lose weight and for general overall health.

 

I also walk a great deal.

 

I try to cut down on the amount of food I eat and try to eat a better choice of foods as well.

 

It is all about how you want to feel and how best to accomplish that.

 

Good luck with it.

One other story:

 

I was taking an extended vacation with an escort and part of the trip was for hiking in the Andes. Well, I am not much of an outdoor person but the trip had porters, a cook and a guide. The only thing the escort and I had to carry were our day packs and ourselves. I am about 5 10 and 210 so I could stand to lose some pounds. The escort was in beautiful hiking shape or so I thought.

 

About two months before the trip I started working out and going regularly to the gym to mostly do cardio. I was not worried about the escort because he looked to be in great shape. He had muscles, was ten years younger than me, was an outdoor enthusiast, etc. so it was me who needed to prepare for the hike and worry that I could not climb some of those mountains.

 

When the first day of hiking was finished we were both fine. I felt accomplished and slept well as did he.

 

The second day of the trip we had to go over two high passes. The first pass we walked together and had lunch right after going over the first pass. We both seemed okay but the escort seemed to be having a little bit more of a challenge than me but I thought after lunch he would be fine. After lunch we had to climb to a pass over 14,000 feet and I just started out slow and steady and looked forward and not back. I did not realize how far I was ahead of the guide and the escort until I reached the top of the mountain. 30 minutes later the guide makes it to the top with me and says the escort is still about 20 minutes behind. He eventually makes it.

 

All of this just proves that outer physical beauty does not necessarily mean you are in great shape. It may mean you have muscles and maybe he could have moved the mountain with his muscles but he certainly could not climb the mountain as easily as me.

 

The next two days were similar to day two.

 

I guess getting in shape at the gym pays some dividends!!!

RE: All of this just proves that outer physical beauty does not necessarily mean you are in great shape.

 

Interesting story! Actually I have heard more than one bodybuilder say that most of the things they need to do to get in shape... and especially when preparing for a compitition... the crazy dieting, etc... are actually unhealthy. Most actually feel healthier when they are in non-competition mode... or better yet when they retire from active competition.

What drives me to go to the gym is the "high" I get after a strenuous exercise. There is no better sensation after a good workout when endorphins are produced and released naturally in your body. I keep going to the gym because if I miss a day I don't feel well. The gym becomes like a "drug" ... Anyone else had the same feeling ?

Definitely... as I indicated above. Working out early in the morning makes me feel ready for the day.

 

Another thing - I agree with Whipped Guy. A major advantage of working out in a gym rather than at home is the "workout muse" - the hot-looking guy working out who inspires you to put in that extra effort in hopes of looking as good as he does some day... I have a few "workout muses" at my gym, and feel more inspired to work out hard when I see them going at it....

Steven! Good buddy! You know what they say about "great minds..." as we are definitely like-minded on this one! Check out my posting above where I also spoke of "endorphins" producing "a drug induce high" and how the "more I workout the better I feel".

 

I most certainly look forward to hooking up with you one of these days... and particularly doing so after we both have experienced a vigorous workout... Shoot! Two guys on a quasi-drug-induced high (as I also noted above in a different posting) is most definitely the formula for success!! Add a sizzling hot luminary such as you into the equation and things might just shoot off the Richter scale… When can we pull this off???

I wish I could explain it better - but I just love it. I go to the gym every morning. I love pushing myself as hard as I can - my whole early life I was just a skinny kid so I've never developed more than a nice lean/swimmer's build. What I love more than working out is running. Now that summer is in full swing I love being in Central Park and doing a 5-6 mile run with just the flimsiest of running shorts, and sweating, sweating, sweating. 'Course I've always had the fantasy of detouring off with another runner into the woods for a totally sweat-filled encounter . . . but I guess that's another post in another forum!
