I love this site, i'm in the selection of the Dutch national triathlon team and this site will definitely help me with it. One thing, I wish there was a way to download all the poster in high resolution at once.

I just discovered this website today. I like the way it's simple and it's easy to find information. If you had filled it with lots of self-promotion and marketing content, I wouldn't even have stayed, let alone donated.

Thank you for the site and the CHALLENGES. 9 months ago the challenge was prostate cancer. Since then it has been recovery. A few minutes ago I finished the 1400 Burpee challenge. Every day of the challenge I could feel the soreness ass weakness gave way to renewed strength. The last day there was no soreness only strength. 63 years old and going for the Core challenge next.
Thank you for the CHALLENGES to become better every day.
I would like to add an additional challenge to all your younger fans.
ARE YOU GOING TO LET AN OLD MAN OUT DO YOU?

LOVE the site! I really enjoy the clean straight forward set up, super user friendly with everything you need and more, no advertising or mandatory sign in and fill your inbox with spam B.S. I emailed a question the other day and was overly impressed with the fast response time.

Also, decided to give the 90 days of action a shot. ... Day 1, Level III, complete! :)

Loving the workouts and themed on awesome stuff. I'm currently on the Bruce Lee 30 day challenge on day 6 and also either do the fight club or vikings workout. Thank you for getting my butt off the computer to do exercise I have never felt better.

Thank you for this website. It made me move half an hour every day. Yesterday I finished 31-day long program when I exercised every day. I did 1530 kicks, 4000 sit-ups (and similar), 2400 punches, 780 push-ups, 1645 lunges and others. More than 12 thousand together. Thank you for them!

People recognize me to be thinner, I recognize myself to be more strong.

Working out is a life style, and those who share they're knowledge should be praised for that, thanks to people like you well-being and fitness is spread around.

Cheers

Thank you about these motivational workouts, I first spotted these from imgur, and these were the jumpstart for me to start taking care of my health. I was in really bad shape after a surgery, and I've been able to recover from that with training 2-3 times a week.

Due to different factors, my abs are very untrained, and I would like to train them hard to see whether they still even can be grown after so many surgeries. However, scoliosis kinda prevents me from doing sit-ups / crunches, so I would love to see your suggestions for a total ab-workout that trains those muscles involved in some different manner. (I am aware that it would probably be best to see a physiotherapist, but I would still like to hear your suggestions.)

I will keep working to get my strength back and to keep in shape.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank for ONE of the best set of workouts I have evercome across. I am excited at the number of various rutines and plans available and look forward to not only using these workouts but to see what else you have in store. With so many to choose from I am spoilt for choice. 10 out of 10 and highly recommended.

After going on vacation to the beach for a week and hating the way I looked in a swimsuit each time I saw myself in a mirror, I made a commitment to get in shape when I got back. I found this site and absolutely love it. Right now I'm working on the "From walking to running" challenge and the "Black Widow" workout and they're great. I also really love the ideas for meals and snacks. It makes eating healthy so much easier when you don't have to guess what you should be eating. So glad I found this site!

I had a personal trainer for 6 months and had amazing results. Then I took a 2 month break to save some money before purchasing another 4 month package. Again, my results physically were wonderful. When my training package ended I found NeilaRey.com; this helped give me circuit workouts much like I had been doing with my trainer. The greatest thing is that I can do these at home if I can't get all the way to the gym. These workouts have challenged me in new ways and given me guidance when I go to kick my own butt. My trainer sees me and she's so proud that I have continued in my fitness journey and have not tapered off like most people. I LOVE that the workouts have themes.... for some reason it empowers me and entertains my mind. Because of this website I feel like I can keep pushing towards my goals and find ideas, motivation, and support. I won't get "burned out" on fitness on my own, and I owe that in large part to NeilaRey.com!!

I found your site a few months ago but procrastinated in doing the workouts. I spend 45+ hours a week stationary, in front of a computer. Today was the first day I did the Office Workout. I feel better than I have in months! I plan to keep it up everyday. Your site is so helpful and is a huge motivator. Thank you so much!

I have found Neila's website a couple of months ago but only recently started working out following the 30 days of Power Up. I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying every workout. The workout are very easy to follow, they are effective, and they don't t require a lot of time to do them (15-20 min).

I have always had an interest in body weight training, and although I knew a lot of body weight exercises, I was never able to come up with a program for myself. My workout were wither too difficult (I was over-achieving) or not provided enough variation. But the workouts here have overcome this two shortcomings and now I am happily back to training.

I would encourage anyone browsing this website to also check the recipes section. I am a man, and found the recipes here extremely easy to follow, fast to make, and very healthy.

To keep reminding myself to workout, I have printed out the workouts and spiral bound them on the short edge, so it looks like a calendar, and hanged it on the wall. Thus, whenever I do a workout, I just flip the page to the next day, and I have the workout in front of my eyes to remind myself to do it. As the old saying goes, "out of sight, out of mind". This is exactly what I wanted to prevent.

As an end note, this is for Neila. I like that you have the spirit of generosity, and you see the visitors of your website as people with whom you want to share something instead of seeing them as customers. I also greatly appreciate that you are humble enough to not "brand" all of this, and create a new "fitness system", as there are already too many of them. I had problems (of ethical nature) in past paying gym memberships as I saw them just an incentive and a poor substitute for motivation, but I have no problem in supporting this project. I am sure that my contribution will help others get access and get the same benefits of this site. Neila, thank you for your generosity and keep up the good work.

Hi
I'm quite young (only 16yo) and I started working out to get rid of some bad habits I took some years ago. I discovered your site by accident after I started exercice again and I was absolutely shocked. Well off course your site is amazing but that is not the most important point to me. What really matters to me is that you really gave me faith in humanity. You really devoted your life to make other's life way better, without expecting to gain anything in exchange. You work hard and we can all assure you that what you do really changes life. You're an amazing person Neila, keep it that way.

Since the day I went across your site, I practice on a daily basis, I'm really getting in shape and by living in a better body, I'm leaving a better life. I remember before when I felt restrained by my own body, I don't have this feeling anymore, thanks to you.

Ps: I'm french so I might have made some mistakes, sorry for that

I've been working 3 sets of "300" workout every morning after a 30minutes of running on treadmill, I eat normal but "Try to have at least one meatless day a week". The best part is I've lost 8kg within a month!

The Super Saiyan Workout brought me here and I thank you so much for making this side, it´s incredibly awesome. I went through all categories, workouts, meal plans, nutritions etc. and I just can say that this is exactly what I was looking for the whole time. The best of it all is that it is free of cost, which is like the most rarest thing to find on the internet or anywhere when you are looking for any help to get you through your weightloss. This is so helping me to finally reach my goals I can barely find the words to actually explain how thankful I am for this. THANK YOU SO MUCH! ^_^

I discovered this site a couple of months ago, when a workout appeared on the front page of Imgur. Being the huge nerd that I am, I immediately freaked out over all of the geeky workout choices, and was inspired to try a couple. I have been hooked ever since. This site has really turned my life around, I've slimmed down and toned up after experimenting with some of the challenges and meal plans. Thank you so much for making so many workouts and health tips available FOR FREE (I'm poor) for everyone, this site is honestly the best!! :)
