Active Tweeters!


Lawdy, is it just me or have more and more people been posting their workouts on Twitter?  Some of you can’t stand workout updates. Me? I love them! What a great thing!  So many more people are getting a move on. Of course doing 3 a days like @OGOchoCinco isn’t for everyone.

Whether you know it or not, it seems like a lot of you are taking the NFL’s advice.  And that is: “Play 60.” One of my favorite commercials. Maybe because it makes me think about all the stuff I do with my son.

Here’s a quick look at what’s been flying down my feed:

@jarret23 is hitting Crossfit and he’s recruited @MSURabbott  and @UlisesOrozco. @vicequeenmaria is beating on my local Bootcamp. @lapp can do a lot of pull-ups and is strong like Brahma Bull. @morewillie  is a side of sinewy beef. Ditto @eQuinn2010. Ditto @DaleBuchanan. @journeyofnow trains either at 10:30 at night or 4:30 a.m. Good luck with that. @malcolli is a controling shareholder in New Balance. @loritodd is back at the gym with a trainer. @brianbreslin is biking in Shark Valley. @rmedina is biking a lot but not in Shark Valley. @egabrewing and @Annush1 are running using the Nike thingy. @MichaelCalienes needs to provide me an update. @andyvitale is back on a washboard binge. Look at @amyvitale’s FB profile pic. Enuf said. @beagarcia is ripping up spin class. @SoFloBoJo is fighting the Outback. @vaughanlazar runs at ungodly hours for ungodly lengths. @KeithSoifer? Tennis Pro and Golf mix. @vanessamontes has 4Squared her butt off (literally) @LAfitness- sometimes at 11:00 p.m. What’s wrong with you child? @alishavera walks like it’s an illness although a recent event has sidelined her and we wish her a speedy recovery. @mklopez has been sweating out family issues and all of our best thoughts are with him and his family. @LoreLama is vying for Ms. Fit on Twitter. @lizscherer is the mayor of like 5 health clubs. @agustinap and @Rebekah Monsoon are constantly sore from bootcamp. Plus Agustina supplies the screaming audio track. I know @RoxyNBCMiami is doing something! @knowaging is frozen in time like Jaclyn Smith. @nakedpizza is all about the fit. @joelkodner has the 12 oz curls covered. @smashfit is the goldstandard. Ditto @MizFitOnline and @joycecherrier. @queenadrock is on it even with her grueling traveling. @Joeperz has never been more vascular. @repsychler hasn’t been out of shape for a day in her life.  I know @dorizinn is doing something, but doesn’t tweet it up.  Plus she burns 1,000 calories just thinking about Mike Stanton. @summerjoy is back at the gym. @travelblggr runs thru airports and at 4 a.m.! @jillianmichaels call me pls. @reddywriting blogs and walk/runs at the same time. @ctiedje is ripped, but that’s probably from chasing three kids. Dunno. @bsoler hates  running but sucks it up. @sanjayguptaCnn shed 20 triathlon training. @jillmeetswrld>run,run, run. @mdl914 does something…I forget. @gopalo blasts it out with high-energy Afro-Cuban Funk. @amandastewart does everything possible. @BruceTurkel has run ruts into the Grove pavement. @miamishines gets in shape by hanging with @iambrucejenner. @SueanneShirzay wrecks a good pedicure for a run. @steph_rose does some sick stuff and Crossfit. I’m thinking @mchamberlin runs but doesn’t tweet it up. @PalmBchGirl walks on the beach in high heels. @mashable has the strongest right wrist on Twitter from pasting links in (work with the joke Pete). @LizaWalton, Yoga. @JillyEnFuego>@ricari. @AllisonNazarian walks with her dog even tho walking with the dog is a pain (always finishes before 8 a.m) and she’s just about to break out her new asics running shoes. @missbeckla doesn’t say. @tedmurphy>marathons. @kcom walks everywhere. @Cessiec is at LA Fitness as I type this. @scottiardella>kettlebells and more (bruther is ripped). Lloyd is happy that @jeremypiven does yoga to keep his temper in check. @TwittsMcGee? Kayaking without sunscreen. @drunkbrunch runs around the Central Park reservoir. @elvisofdllas chime in. @mcuban has a pic of himself playing hoops, but I can’t tell. @AnaisabelGarcia will be getting back to crossfit shortly. @ericadurst swims, runs on the beach with daily mile. @JeffHechtAZ trains at (SETS) and we both taunt @terrellowens. @eastd is back to lifting but has cut out the grunting.  @chrisbrogan? Let me know.  @adamsconsulting is on the Social Media diet and looks great without makeup. @PGA_JohnDaly does The “Daly Workout.” It’s a special mix of lapband surgery, smoking  and he still hits longer than Tiger Woods. @OwenO is waiting for the storm to pass on a golf course. And @swimbikerunning? Fairly self-explanatory.

So that’s it for now. If I missed you, please ring in. A post can only go on so long. Me? I only train to eat more pizza.  ~Mike

P.S. Special thanks to @pbarbanes and @TheTinyJEWELBox for Thursday’s webinar.

    Thanks for giving away my main *hairflip* beauty secret. Running on the beach barefoot. Yes, it means the pedicure only lasts a week, but dammit, I’m worth it and so are my lack of jiggly thighs.

    • Mike LaMonica Says:

      No, you were early to this post! We had a conversation like 600 Tweetups ago and I told you that I liked when you posted up what you did for a workout. You asked me if it was too much. My post is your answer. Glad you got home safely. ~Mike

    I LOVE this post! (of course I especially loved: “@alishavera walks like it’s an illness although a recent event has sidelined her and we wish her a speedy recovery.”)

    I’m all about the illness. Wanna walk with me?

  19. mobikeith Says:

    ‘Cuse me while I walk briskly to the fridge to get a cold Shocktop.

    With everyone so fit, why dont we have an Ironman Tweetup for S Fla tweeps.

    The principle sponsor could be @pizzatweetup!!
