The only downside to exercising in the morning is that you won't be firing on all cylinders (CNS-wise) at first but if you've been doing it for a while then chances are you've already become adjusted to it, and if not, you will.

Try giving HIIT a shot at your local high school track, or even better on a flat grassy field where you can run barefoot. Or you can try the old fashioned method of fat burning, manual labor either real or simulated (http://www.revver.com/video/826693/grappler-sandbag-complex/). I'll put another pos...

Thats maybe a bit unfair brook! I would imagine the thought of going to the gym with manboobs would be a major hurdle. Plus, he's a college student, so I would guess money might be an issue too.
