Stretch like a mofo because that workout was BEAST!
I've been terrified to try Barry's Bootcamp. The workout never seemed like something I would enjoy and you know I'm all for "making fitness fun." My friend Jade's determination to get in the best shape of her life was the nudge I needed to join her at this boutique fitness class. The price is much more than I would normally pay for a workout, but supporting my Sweat Sister was more important than the price tag. As soon as I stepped inside the studio, I was inspired, and I began daydreaming about the day PGS has a space as cool as that one. From the customer service to the smoothie bar in the lobby, I was hooked before I even stepped foot in the class. The classroom doors opened up, and music filled the air as the instructors welcomed guests into the dimly lit red room. The smorgasbord of weights and treadmill lined mirrors made me feel like I was stepping into a new-age gladiator training camp and it fueled my competitive nature. I was all good during my first two minutes on the treadmill. Once the instructor told us to adjust our treadmill's incline from 5.5 to 9, I wanted to give up and conjure an excuse that I had to go to the bathroom or that "I think I left my car door open." But staring back at me as I looked in the mirror were the words PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT boldly showing on my black muscle tank. Whenever I felt like I couldn't take another step, I kept my eyes on those words and never wavered. From the floor for weight training to the treadmill and back to the floor again, I was doing the best I could with consistent encouragement from Jamaal, the instructor. The playlist could have been a little more ratchet, but I got my fix when G Eazy's "No Limit" came pouring out the speakers. Music saves lives! Would I try it again? Yep. But only once a week because... the way my bank account is set up is set up.
