Hi Lilly,

Thanks for your email.

Lilly, since you are only 13 years old, I recommend that you get a clearance from a doctor first. Please don't ignore this advice.

Secondly, its not the right time to start building muscles using heavy weights.

The best you should do is to start doing bodyweight exercises { I will give the link below} and do aerobic exercises.

Have a active lifestyle and eat lots of grains, veggies and proteins.

Use the links below to learn more about the above topics.


Also I suggest you try the Burn the Fat program, but once you start this program, take your time as the program can be difficult to follow. But with your motivation I am sure you will do what's required.

You should lose about 1-2 lbs a week on a program that's right for you.

Hope I have been helpful.

Hameed S.

Usecircuit training body weight exercises and have fun

Hi Lilly:

Great that you are thinking about your health & fitness. So many don't these days.

Focus on health, Strength and fitness and not about weight loss. This way you won't get drawn into the weight loss mentality where the motivation to be fit can be totally loss. You will become lean and fat loss will be a (nice) side benefit.

Firstly have a check up with your doctor then concentrate on exercises that use the whole body as one unit (don't use weights until you are older). So do things like pressups, body weight squats, skipping, handstands against a wall,chin ups when you can and medicine ball exercises (there are loads!). As you improve you can increase the intensity by 'Working for time':- put several exercises together in a circuit, set a timer that goes off say every 30 seconds. Perform the exercise for 30secs, rest 30 secs, then do the next exercise etc.

Keep changing, explore new exercises, have fun!

You could also buy a jungle gym from Lifeline products - this is a fantastic peice of kit and the exercises can be progressed as you improve. Check out . The owner Jon Hinds is brilliant and there are lots of exercise suggestions and video on the site.

Good luck to you.
