Favorite activities: hiking (Torrey Pines), racquetball, biking (Trek ftw), swimming and beach activities (but the Great Lakes > oceans). I go to the gym in my apartment complex to lift/cardio 3-5 times per week depending on the surgery schedule.

I also work out regularly with my girlfriend 8)

New Balance is a fantastic brand, but honestly, if the shoe fits, who cares... :D

No, it's just you. You also forgot to include your favorite brand of shoe.

it's always been my observation that a large majority of armagetron players are physically active and many play competitive sports. it makes a lot of sense, the game is about movement.

My favorite exercise is aggressive inline skating, so I guess my fave shoe brand is Rollerblade TRS skates? Trying to learn some extreme running moves, just use some good old $7 starter shoes from Wal-Mart...
Lift some weights, low load (never more than 40 pounds), but high reps. 3-5 sets of 20 reps...

Atm, I play baseball on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and lift on Tuesdays and Thursdays (for baseball). I used to run a lot, but now it's only sometimes on weekends. Usually use asics shoes.

During my golf season, I walk 9 holes, and practice for a total of 6 hours. 9 Holes is around 2.75 miles on the courses I play (long walks). I do that 4 days a week (plus one 18 hole round). So I walk about 16.5 miles a week for 3 months. Over the summer, I walk 18 holes about 3 times a week, and use a cart another, So I roughly walk 18 miles. I do that in 90+(Fahrenheit) heat.

During the winter and spring, I only walk 5.5 miles a week, unless I have a tournament coming up, then I will get that up to around 11.

p.s. I am about to get my weekly exercise done now!

Not that you care, but I wear footjoys. http://www.austads.com/FootJoy-Mens-Dry ... 61/product

I don't work out lately other than walking places because I can't lose too much weight (90 pounds right now.) But I used to go to the gym 3 times a week.

I'm in football and lacrosse, and I usually go to the gym every other day. Preferred brand of shoe for working out is any real Nike High Tops. For just casual wear I like Vans Slip-ons.

I've gotten lazy this year, but last year I jogged 5 times a week for at least an hour and 30 minutes. I don't have a shoe preference, but what I used to use most is Nike Air Forces.

When the weather gets a bit better (i.e., no longer freezing), I go running three times a week early in the morning.

I use Saucony shoes. No idea if that brand is any good.

8) I wear those to look cool. I don't exercise in them though. I should try. They seem Ok for jogging and that's about all.
