I never thought, in a million years, that I would ever become one of those people. You know, the ones that go to fitness classes and can’t stop talking about how amazing it is and how everyone needs to join.
Over the past few months, there have been a few different things that I’ve learned along the way… that will only make your fitness class journey much more enjoyable.
In your mind. In everything. I make it one of those things where I cannot negotiate missing my fitness class. Oh, you’re having a happy hour? Sorry, fitness class. Need me to work late? Um, maybe in an hour after I finish this sweat sesh.
I don’t know how many times I’ve tuned out the fitness instructor as they are showing us a new exercise or talking about the next thing that we’ll be doing. Ooops. But seriously, after a long work day? Sometimes my mind is tired. They will likely repeat it about 6 more times because I think they know how easy it is to tune out. Especially 50 minutes in. 😉
Just trust me. You will be working out, but it will be in an air conditioned room… so yeah, take it from experience. A padded sports bra is preferred.
It will likely take a while to build a strong relationship, but it makes it so much more enjoyable when you know you have a few people that you’ll recognize for that class you really don’t want to go to, and you can make plans together of how you can secretly escape without the instructor noticing.
I seriously love the last five minutes of class where we stretch and cool down. Your body deserves it after killing it in the workout that you just subjected it to. So, take a few minutes, give your body the rest and let yourself relax. Just don’t fall asleep.
Do you take fitness classes? What are your favorite ones?
Do you try to get others to work out with you?
