  1. As someone who was actually overweight. 300lbs. Absolutely don't start running. WALK, don't run. Walking is much more enjoyable than running especially when your body isn't used to moving to much. I walked a couple miles every day for over a year before I started running.

  2. I’m 190 right now and I’ve started doing 30 60’s where I run in place for 30 seconds and walk in place for a minute, for 25 minutes (then continue walking for 50 mins) when I tried running outside a few years ago, my knees started hurting so now during the quarantine I’ve started doing everything in place. this is my first week but I think it going to help (and maybe I will one day feel comfortable going back outside)

  3. When you guys can charge on a monthly basis instead of taking it all at once per year…I will start my free trial. Can't give up that much money all at once for something I don't think I might be able to stick with or have time to do.

  4. 165 lbs(75kg) this weight is just insane for my age i am just 21 ….started walking and jogging at 5 45 am….its been 3 days…..and i will continue my training for sure…😍😍😍just came here for few tips….😀👌👌👌

  5. I am 5'7 and weight 213lbs. I started running two weeks ago. I hope i can improve my 5km pacing from 7:40 to 6:00…..

  6. it is recommended for over-weight individuals to do brisk-walking/hike everyday for 1 hour as the primary cardio before any type of running is performed. Running while being over-weight can damage the knees, hips, and ankles in a short amount of time! Its hard to see over-sized individuals who start off their first day of a workout program with a 3 mile jog and suddenly develop all kinds of pains in their lower extremities. Brisk Walking, Eating Healthy, and doing a lot of mobility training is the first phase of building a lean and healthy physique. Strength and Cardio-vascular endurance training should should be easier to perform afterwards.

  7. I'm 5ft7 and weigh 14.7 stones. I've just started jogging again after a long period off and each step I take is painful. I feel like vomiting at the 0.5 mile point. I've been jogging for a week now and I'm so fatigued every time I jog, I'm nearly on the verge of giving up every time I go. How far do you think is best to jog for an overweight person like me?

  8. I did the San Francisco Parkrun in that park when i visited from Australia. Such a beautiful place to run. Looking forward to when we can travel once more. Great video too!

  9. I'm pretty middle in weight, just about overweight, and I'm getting up at 6:00am tomorrow morning to start running- I did a mile today, and wow, that was more difficult than it should have been; I'm blaming lockdown and my previous workout of the day- but Isabelle Furham made me start wanting to. Anyway, I wish everyone else luck.

  10. I’m going to learn to run a mile nonstop. I commenting this because I want to be held accountable for it. And so that I don’t give up because so many people are going to know I failed if I give up so I’m going to push through! I’ll give updates 🙂

  11. I used to run 5K's, 10K's, 10 milers, 1/2 marathons, and then I started college and everything changed. I was seriously into weight training but with school, I've gained a belly. I still have my muscles but my belly is a bit bigger. I started to weight train and noticed lots of huffing and puffing. My condition is not what it used to be. I want to get back into running and weight training. I find myself being a couch potato. I thought I would never get to this level but I find excuses. I need to get back and stay with the program.

  12. When I ran I would do sprints, combos (30 sec sprint, job, walk), and jog. On days I didn’t run I would bike or do other low impact cardio. I have permanent injuries so now I walk mostly and low impact cardio.

  13. I’m 26, and have put on about 50 pounds over the past year following a particularly bothersome breakup. As somebody who ran cross country throughout both middle school and high school whilst also playing drums in a variety of gigging bands, I feel so ashamed for having fallen off as much as I have.

    Any pointers? I’m 5’9 and about 200 lbs.

  14. Thank you for making this, I'm gonna start running this morning. I'll be back a month later… Wish me luck

  15. Thank you so much from a beginner runner. This really helped to explain so much, especially the mental challenge and the comparison to other runners. Thank you.

  16. Starting today, used to run a lot but got injured and now I’m 2 stone overweight and unfit, so wish me luck 🙂
