In keeping with the theme of trying new things, I decided to give a TRX class a try and begin my training as a modern day ninja. My style probably looked more along the lines of Beverly Hills White Ninja, but hey it’s a start, right ❓ To share in my public display of uncoordinated movments I invited my friend AG but she has this condition called “Idon’tdoearlymorningsatthegym” 😯 As such I was left to try it on my own. Granted, a few weeks back I did do a TRX session with my trainer RubySlippers and almost died, but it’s one thing for your trainer to see you half passed out and a whole different thing for a group of strangers to witness it.
Still, I made up my mind and decided to go to a morning session taught by one of the spinning instructors whose class I’ve attended in the past. I figured that as long as she knew my name then that’s one less stranger in the class. Also, since she’s super nice it makes it much easier being a newb in her class and asking for help with my tangled TRX set-up.
The great thing about going to the gym regularly and trying different classes is that some people become very familiar & so the minute I walked into the gym class I recognized a few faces from spinning and Zumba and gravitated to their corner. Because in all honesty I am way passed the point of being embarrassed in front of anyone who has seen me flailing around at Zumba 🙂 So being the nice people that they are they helped me set-up and of course Tanya our awesome instructor came over and was happy to finally see me give her class a shot. And so the madness also known as TRX began…

:arrow:Super Hero T-Shirt soaked in sweat, yeah I know gross but cool!
:arrow:Conquering fear of trying new challenging classes
:arrow:The satisfaction of making it through the class half dead but still standing
:arrow:None, unless you count those stairs to the locker room…big challenge after TRX
It’s always great to discover how much your body can actually do. Things don’t get any easier but you get stronger so it all balances itself out. I also learned something new today from Tanya’s class. She likes to say: “If you’re not feeling pukey by the end of the class, then you’re not pushing yourself hard enough!”. Which means I trained hard, because I was definitely feeling pukey
Keep training hard, moving forward and eating less cookies & stuff!
My challenge 2U:
:arrow:Drink more water

It’s like RubySlippers says: “You’ve Got This!” 😉
