I was voted off Hooping Idol. After that, I decided to do things that I believe might improve my hooping and help me lose weight. I found out Pure Bare studio in Lexington offers your first class for free. I called them and I reserved my free class. I got there 20 minutes early and had to fill out the paperwork. In the last week, I am realizing that I am "connected to a fitness organization and fitness instructor." Therefore I had to say, "Yes, I am a fitness instructor" on the questionnaire.
There are no shoes or barefeet in the studio. So odd for me to do these moves in socks. If I do this for real, I will have to find non-skid socks, preferably toe socks. The front of the studio is store selling clothes that I will never fit into in a billion years. The inside of the studio is carpeted with big windows on one side. There was mirrors on 2 of the walls. Barres were on all walls. The trainer had introduced herself to me when we started. She grabbed my mat and supplies. I felt and was a little lost. The first half of the class was being taught by a trainer in training.
The class was like WHAM we're starting. It was knee lifts and then we went to the floor. There was some planks, pushups and tricep dips. I substituted movements I saw in Bar Method Fat Free the day before. The arm work was with three pounds and it was killer! Much better than most of the other DVDs I've used. Some movements I would have to sit out because I just couldn't do anymore. We also did some knee dancing. We did some barre work. One we were pressed up against the barre with a ball between us pressing one leg back and in circles. We did some flat back and some flat back ab exercises. We also did the C curve abs with a ball underneath. My knees weren't aggravated at all. But it was SO hard. I wish I could do it more but it's $20 a class plus it's in Lexington. I did buy the Mile High DVD but I'll substitute moves as needed. I could actually FEEL these abs unlike doing the Bar Method.
I might ask John is sparely as a reward for keeping this up.
And I just counted all my exercise DVDs (I could flow art DVDs because it's still activity). The ones that are out right now is about 112. Wow. I have more in this under the bed box in my room.
