About 3 years ago I was what I call "In the Zone". I was walking 2 to 3 miles everyday and working out by taking a Body Pump class. I was very faithful to attend class and within 4 weeks of working out (3 times a week) I could really tell a difference. This class isn't easy to find and the place I was taking it didn't offer it any longer. In addition, I started a new job that required me to work longer hours and I just didn't seem to have the time to work out.
This past week, I joined a new gym that offers classes, one of those being a class called Muscle Madness. This class is very similar to Body Pump but it has differences as well. So I took my first class Tuesday night. I had forgotten what it was like to work out like that for the first time. My legs and arms were shaking so bad I wasn't sure I was going to be able to drive home. But it felt GREAT! Wednesday afternoon the soreness started setting in and by Thursday I could hardly walk. BUT, it didn't keep me from going to class Thursday night. And today, all the soreness is gone. I know this class is going to make a HUGE difference and I am eager to see results quickly! My only regret is that I can only take it two days a week!
Needless to say, I am back in the zone and can't wait to have class each week! Even the lunges and squats - which I hate, but they are OH SO GOOD FOR YOU!
