Last night, I found myself at work after 7:00pm. After the air had gone off, I realized it was time to go. I had also realized that I had missed my planned mid-day Pilates class. Whoops.
You see, I haven’t been to the gym very much since I made that commitment and joined. Every time I plan for a lunch-time workout, I get sucked into a project, or a meeting goes over, or I just lose track of time. So yesterday, I was determined to get to the gym and do at least something. After looking at Gold’s Gym’s class schedule, I came across this guy:
Enter “Body Flow”. As the last class of the day, it was my best option for making it to the gym. So I went. And I was nervous. Trying new things always makes me nervous, and I had NO idea what to expect.
I was waiting patiently outside the room with a few other girls (the previous class was finishing up), and I turned to one of them and asked if she was waiting for the Body Flow class. She said yes. So obviously I asked her what it’s like. And she said, similar to yoga. Oooookay. Not exactly what I expected, but hey, that’s great! I need stretching and strengthening.
So this is what I expected:
This is what we actually got:
Overall, I liked it! There was a lot of stretching, but also a lot of strength too. We even focused a few moves on hips, which is fantastic, bc I have ridiculously weak hips. We also did a few core moves, and hamstring stretches. I’m even sore today! I love that!
My only problem is that the class is at 7:30. I don’t really like staying at work that late. 😦 But, I suppose in the future I can go to the gym for a short run or bike, and then go to the class.
Woohoo! Look at me! I’m becoming a real gym rat!
What’s your go-to class or move for stretching and strengthening? My plan was to really focus on pilates, but I can see the Body Flow class working for me! Have you ever done it?
