I arrived at bootcamp a little early. I was chatting with the trainers, when one of them asked if it was true that I have lost 10kg this year. I told him it was 13 No biggie! The trainers were giving me heaps of positive feedback about my weight loss after that. That was a nice confidence boost right before class!
There were 7 of us in total, and 2 trainers. We were split into 2 groups, and we switched between the trainers. I was the fittest person there, by far, but the trainers were really good at scaling the workout to suit everyone's needs. When everyone walked, I jogged. When they jogged, I sprinted. It worked.
We did a lot of running shuttles and relays, broken up with some cardio based strength work (like fast squats), and some core. We were on the moved most of the time, with a quick water break every 10 minutes. They said it will be different every week, so the variety will be nice.
I'm glad I signed up for this bootcamp. I think it will give me an opportunity to push and challenge myself. Since there are small numbers the trainers can tailor the program to suit all of us. At the end of the night the trainer asked us all if we wanted it harder, easier or the same. When he got to me he said "What about you, harder, right?" Hehe, my reputation precedes me.
It was nice to be the fittest person instead of the fattest, for once. I am proud of how far I have come, and how fit I have become. So if this blog sounds braggy, then I suppose it is braggy.
