I haven't been to the gym since Thursday! I haven't really even worked out since then either. I've been a combination of busy and lazy. I decided to take a TRX class today. [First day back in 5 days and I decided to take a class I've never taken before, I'm super smart!] If you aren't familiar with TRX it's the suspension training class. It kinda looks like this:

Luckily today's class was the "beginner" class. I was one of only 2 people UNDER 50. This class was brutal. I thought it would be easy since I'm fairly strong and lift weights on most days. But, NO! This was not easy. My legs were dead 15 minutes into class. I found maneuvering the straps a bit tedious but, besides that it was a great workout. I would highly recommend it. According to my friend who does TRX, it takes about 3 weeks for your body to stop hurting from it. I guess I better start counting down the days.
I think tomorrow I'm going to check out a Spin class. I'm not too certain I'll be able to walk tomorrow though. Oddly though, I love being sore. It means I got in a good workout.
The more I learn about fitness, the more classes I take, and the more active things I do, I have decided that if money was no option (or if everything was free) I would be certified in EVERYTHING. TRX certified, Paddlefit, personal training, everything that I've taken so far I love and I want to teach it to the world (or atleast Flagler County.)
