I’ve been in a workout slump for weeks. Honestly, it’s probably been a few months now. I like working out it makes me feel good. Eating healthy and working out combined helps my waist line — bonus! But, truthfully I’ve become tired of the same ol’ same. I need a fresh workout routine, new workout music, and even a new workout facility. Y’all know by now I don’t sit on the sidelines long complaining — that’s a waste of time and energy. Y’all also know I’m not afraid to step outside of my comfort zone and seek what I need.
So,this afternoon I went to an awesome studio — Northwest Personal Training. I took a kick-butt Bike/Row class led by an enthusiastic certified personal trainer, Ted, alongside five other folks rowing and riding to the beat of Bob Marley’s “Jammin.” During class I admit I became winded a couple of times and took a breather, but otherwise I rode and rowed right with the others. When Ted instructed us to crank our bikes to another gear, I cranked. When he told us to find another rowing level, I did.
Today, I tried something new and I liked it. I believe this class and the new workout environment is the very spark I needed to get myself back moving in the right direction. It’s time I take my fitness and weight loss to the next level.
