Second evening working out at Farrell’s yesterday….
More importantly…MY first day at kickboxing! and it’s legit too- I have boxing gloves and everything!
So me and kickboxing never really got along in the past…I would either get really confused with all the complicated steps, or I was worked so hard that I would come close to passing out half way through the class. So needless to say, the nerves were up when I walked into class yesterday.
THANKFULLY my bestie Amy is a Fit Member and was my partner at the 5:30 class, so she helped make sure I knew what I was doing.
Amy has been a Fit member for at least a year or two now, and she is the perfect story for those that maybe don’t have extra weight to lose, but want to be in shape. There were a couple summers during our college years and after graduation where we would take some workout classes here and there, but I remember her saying she wasn’t ever satisfied with those. Then she started Farrell’s and she loved it! And rocked it too…this girl is TONED!
And she was rockin’ the class last night. As her partner I felt like a superhero’s super inferior side kick…she’d throw 3 rockin’ roundhouse kicks to the bag, and I would throw my one wimpy kick in a “Yeah! And stay down punk!” kind of way.
I still had a great time though! I learned that I’m very uncoordinated with figuring out the whole jab/cross/hook pattern (I forget which is my left and which is my right…) but I’m sure that will come in time.
Tonight’s session: back to strength training…and its the lower body….Sean “The Madman who is also a 10 weeker warned me this morning that it is rough! I can’t wait!
Bring on the Soreness! and I’m sure it will hit me like roofies hit Tracy Jordan…
have a great day! and remember- more details at joinfxb.com!
