All Members , Moderated
Fitzilla is a community of men and women from beginners to advanced. We are dedicated to encouraging and motivating each other to reach our health and/or fitness goals. It was created by aquaholic who has since deleted her journal.

Note: This is NOT a pro-ana or pro-eating disorder community. Eating disorders are not tolerated nor condoned in this community.

Some of the topics we discuss:

Body for Life, South Beach Diet, macrobiotics, CKD, bodybuilding, weightlifting, powerlifting, body shaping, strength and conditioning, female muscle, food plans, dieting, calories, books, bicycling, exercising, running, pilates, yoga, and much more.

Basic Rules & Guidelines:

  1. This is not a debating community. While it's okay to disagree, do not harass other members. Be nice, no flaming, and respect your peers.
  2. Do not violate the LJTOS.
  3. Introduce yourself: You can say where you're from, what you like to do, and even post a picture of yourself if you'd like. Or fill out our survey then post it in the community if you'd like:

    Current workout (indicate if you are on the Body for Life program, Weight Watchers, Dr. Phil's Fitness Challenge, powerlifting routine, Southbeach Diet etc):
    Current workout goal(s):

  4. PLEASE use LJ-cut for long posts or for pictures larger than 400 pixels.
  5. Try not to lurk. Post post post! This is a community, so try and get to know the people in it! Participate. We encourage it. We also encourage those with fitness knowledge, experience, certification(s), etc. to post.
  6. If you do not follow these rules we can and will ban you from this community.
  7. Remember: There is no one-size-fits-all solution for everyone when it comes to diet, exercise, losing weight, gaining weight, etc.
