And it's one I've never even heard of!

We were doing lighter workouts since it's a new session and one of them fell over during squats! My instructor always tells people to use a bench and sit during the squat if they're still not familiar with them but she chose to ignore that suggestion and ended up losing her balance and tipping over. The class changed from being called "boot camp" to total body conditioning because they felt like too many people were intimidated by the boot camp name. Since they changed the name we get a lot of people in the class that just are not ready for this type of workout and regret paying to take it. It's one of the few classes you actually have to pay for so I don't know how they found their way into signing up for this stuff without doing the research about what it is. There's no way I'd pay for a class without going to a preview of it before. Anyways I felt bad for her but at the same time it took everything I had in me to not laugh at her.
We started our bootcamp as well. Four of us. Oddly enough, the thinnest was the one that had a hard time keeping up. She had never done that type of workout. She apologized for being slow and I told her that was not the case. Hey, we're all here trying to do something good for our bodies.

She was still pretty tough on us even though she was holding back to see our threshold. Since she's my trainer, she knows that she can push me.

It felt sooo good.

yeah it felt really good to have a hard workout. We were off last week and I almost threw up the week before so I only got half a session in that week. This was great tonight. There's 9 people in this class, the most that's ever been in a boot camp. I like smaller classes but my trainer even said that since they changed the name more people are interested in it.

My class is also taught by my trainer and she goes out of her way to kick my ass every single time. At one point she even stopped showing someone else a technique to tell me I needed to pick up the pace and run faster because she knows I can.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the larger girls taking the class, because as you said some smaller people also have issues, but maybe they should have worked up towards it first. My friend has taken the class with me for the past few months and although she runs a few times a week she had a very hard time with the strength training. But she said right away there's no way she could have taken the class had she not at least been in shape to run a few miles.

Yeah, the girl there was previewing the class. She liked it. I told my husband that it was like 2 sessions with our trainer.

Yeah, even if you look fit, that doesn't mean you are, like those lucky few that always look good with or without exercise haha.
I've been taking a sort of workout class regularly for the last ten years (though the level and instructors have changed) and I have a hard time with a lot of the cardio stuff, and I'm not much of a runner either. Gotta give credit to anybody that actually tries though, that's the good thing.

I would've chuckled a bit at the instructor falling over, too, arw .

That sounds very tough indeed. But sometimes you need that push to really get you going, I guess. Hope the sessions continue to go well.

I really need to exercise more. Don't know if I could go to a gym on a regular basis, but I could certainly work with some more at-home exercise stuff.

Ahhhh, cool! I love it when that sort of thing happens . I often wind up sitting there going, "Heeeee, he looks so young and cute!" and stuff.

Glad you're enjoying the movie. What's it about?

no, no....the instructor didn't fall. A larger girl taking the class fell over because she did not listen our instructor's instructions regarding doing squats with a bench behind her so she knew how far to go down.

Oh. Sorry. My mistake, then .

To be fair to that girl, the chances are good I would've made a similar mistake.

It was a good movie.

It was about a serial killer in South Africa in 1982.

Actually, no. He didn't die. He was one of the good guys, I think.










And it surprised the hell out of me.

BTW Tara, did you catch the Sons season opener yet?

Looks like it should be a good season.

Ooh Green Day just performed on America's Got Talent. I have no clue what they were doing on that show. (Justin Bieber was on it too) But I guess like U2 TV airtime is all good when you have new songs to perform.

And geeeez Billie Joe will NEVER age.
