Highlight Story

If your one-time gym companion abandoned you for a packet of chips, you probably, no, definitely have some weighty issues to work out.

But if you’re also tired of looking like Queen Latifah’s body double, then log on to www.gyminee.com, a social network that motivates/monitors your daily fitness routine.

The website has tools to help you create your perfect workout routine as well as track your daily exercises and diet plans. You can browse through the site’s online library of workout videos, subscribe to other users’ fitness programmes or customise your own.

A database of more than 65,000 foods and recipes can help you plan your diet, while nutrition labels on each eatable indicate your carb, protein and fat intake.

If it’s motivation you lack, search for online gym buddies and groups who will spur you on. And if you’re game for some healthy competition, join a friendly fitness challenge with other members to reach targets like “lose five kilogrammes in three months.” A constantly updated leaderboard shows your position in each challenge.

In case you don’t want a potential date discovering that you need to eat 1,000 calories less, the site offers you a private locker room to keep a tab on your weight changes. Social networking never felt more productive!
