A few weeks ago I started a new job and one of the perks is an awesome corporate gym. I have been going to this gym for a while and paying the guest fee in order to swim with my friends and training partners so I was really excited to get the job so that I could officially join the gym!
A few of my friends have always loved a Bootcamp class at the gym and encouraged me to join them when the new session started today. I was told to show up early because the class can get full and they actually will cut people off from entering if it's too full. I met up with my friend Cathy as I was heading into the locker room to change. I told Cathy I was a little scared for the workout!
The class started out with a series of ab moves then moved onto circuit training. As Jason the trainer walked through the stations I got even more scared! The stations covered a full, total body workout. Some of the stations included exercise bands, dumb bells, stability balls, and even the TRX bands. I had never tried the TRX bands before and by the end of each station could definitely feel the burn. I also struggled with doing the mountain climbers and had to take some pauses during those stops on the circuit. For the most part, I was fatigued by the time the trainer hollered to switch to the next station and I'm fairly certain I will feel the workout tomorrow.
As we finished up the class, I asked one of my friend's in the group how come I was sweating and they weren't! His remark was that they have had more practice and know how to cheat better!
