First step towards better health

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

So I grabbed up a groupon for 10 kickboxing classes with boxing gloves included...which I must say that I was slightly scared of but excited for. I went with a friend so that made things more comfortable and less intimidating. As soon as I was handed my boxing gloves, the class got started and everyone was doing laps around the bags. If theres one thing that I hate about working out....its running. Hopefully in due time that will change....anyway once i went to the locker room i realized no one wore shoes....okay made me feel a little more comfortable. When i finally got out to the floor the laps were over and lunge hops were next....oh that seems easy.... yeah right. after the fifth one I was ready to fall over. I couldn't help but chuckle to my friend next to me and say 'i didn't realize that I was this out of shape!' Fortunately I saw that no one was judgmental and everyone was going and pushing it at their own pace which made me feel comfortable. Once the floor work was over came the punching bag, which was a great way to relieve frustration. I ended up being paired up with two other girls that were friends and were also very encouraging to me. They were fairly new as well... I liked it... and I felt comfortable being a sweaty mess :) this is definitely a place i see myself going on a regular. Fitness classes that I once saw as intimidating...Now I'm actually proud that I'm going.... Hopefully I'll have another blog on my progress

    I have been there! I am so proud of you for sticking it out. emoticon You are absolutely right, you will become more able to do the activities the more you go. I have a feeling you will be completely surprised by the leaps and bounds you make in those ten sessions.

    Sounds like fun. I took a few classes like that a couple years back. It felt great to pound on the bags and got a good sweat going too!! Keep up the hard work!!!
