Andrew

ANDREEW/
FREELANCE
I' been coming to Tipness for eight years now, and I somehow manage five to six times a week. My favorite instrument of torture is the leg press-I do it for 30 minutes.

I've been coming to Tipness for two years. I hate EVERYTHING but, you know, I do them all anyway.

I work it all out at Fitness World. I've come once a week for three years, and spend about an hour on the aerobike.

We know, we know. Every New Year, you pay the gym fees, promise yourself you'll get fit, then go home and open a beer. This week, we track down the few who've stuck with their regimes and ask about their club and favorite instrument of torture. Phew, makes us sweaty just thinking about it.

Right now my body belongs to Fitness World. I've been coming here for three years, but working out at various places for ten. I work out every day, and do the high puller for my back.

I've been cooking up a sweat at Crunch three times per week for the past six months. I get it all out of my system by doing about 30 minutes on the aerobike.
