Hello Everyone! I just found this app on my phone and am really excited to finally lose that baby weight (from 7 years ago). From what i've seen from this app it all looks promising. I have about 20lbs to lose to no longer be considered obese and my end goal is to lose 50lbs and maintain that weight lose. Women on both sides of my family seem to have weight issues (over 100lbs overweight or more and cant seem to lose any) once they have children and I am determined to break free from that! Hopefully there is some good encouragement and support on this website :)

Hello US of A, California here. Currently finally getting rain. Not near enough to pull out of the drought. How about you North/ North-East? Cold, snowy and wet?
Looking forward to Spring already. I enjoy trail jogging but little bit wet now!

What are you going to change about yourself for 2014?
31-12-2013 11:01
Work out more regularly and try to eat more home cooked food instead of take away.

Plenty. On the fitness side, I'm going to get back into karate and earn my black belt.

Hurray for the Dutch!
This American VirtuaGym user wants to send a big thank you to the Dutch creators of this site. Like many people in the US, I only speak English and have minimal experience with the metric system. I just took the Fitness Test and although the writing was in English, the spoken words were something else. I couldn't tell what. German? French? It sounded Germanic, but I distinctly hear a few "ne ... pas's" in there. Dutch! It must have been Dutch! Thank you all you cool people in Amsterdam. :)

Great to hear you appreciate our efforts! We're continuously working hard to make Virtuagym even better, lot's of great plans.. :) As for the language, yes that's Dutch. We still want to put up an English translation, sorry about that. Enjoy Virtuagym, great to have you here
Gr, Hugo

Is exercise using the Wii enough exercise? I usually do the free run and burn about 214 calories in half an hour and then in the evening i try to do an 85 minute workout also on the Wii and a second free run? Any comments or suggestions would be helpful! Thank you!

It's what got me started. I liked the WiiFit because I could do it before work in my pj's. Eventually you will start having to supplement it. One of the first ways I did? Sign up for a martial arts/self defense class. You'll get a work out, and learn something that may come in handy one day.

Can anyone help me plan a workout on that schedule please let me know if you can...thanks

my biggest problem is night eating I can do great during the day but once I eat supper then I want to keep eating the rest of the night . I think I try every thing in the book and can't find any thing that works. I even went to bed early but couldn't fall asleep because of wanting some thing to eat and I can't just can't settle for something small . I just keep!
06-04-2013 23:33
it's stupid that you can't put your own exercises in  manually on this site . only if you go pro
08-04-2013 17:35
Sorry for the delay Issmith.I think it's stupid that you can't put your own exercises on this site too. I've written a few emails to virtuagym, but so far I've gotten no results from that. Especially because my trainer often has me do this workout called burpees, and it's not listed on here.
But as far as some of the obstacles you're facing, I've been there before — at least with the late night snacking.
Maybe you could try loading up in the day time with heavier meals, like a reverse meal order. What I mean is, perhaps you could have dinner for breakfast, a standard lunch, then breakfast before going to bed. The premise is, you burn more calories during the day because you have all day to burn it off. So rather than having a heavy meal right before going to sleep, eat it early, and then have maybe oatmeal and fruit before bed. It's worth a shot. I know lots of people who've lost weight this way. Give it a shot for a week or two and see if it helps.

Candracook...I thought I seen Burpees in the exercises.....I'll again look some time and let you know. well with the eating I work 12 hrs. shifts and I work 6pm to 6 I sleep during the day...but my big problem  is my days maybe that would work .I'll try it and let you know...once again thanks!

Hey all! I'm new to this site! I am trying to reach 120 pounds or less. I currently weigh 155. If you have any suggestions or pointers bring it on. I'm trying to get back into shape for my son :)

Wishing you the best. Two things: Exercise and watch what you eat. Either use the nutrition feature on VirtuaGym or download a food app --- such as Lose It!, to track your food. Set it up, still on course by watching your calories. Before you know it, pounds will start to come off.
