A bad start
Tuesday, October 30, 2012
I had my first session with a trainer today, and it didn't go really well. After 30 minutes of working out with bands and weight, she wanted me to go on the treadmill for 20 minutes to monitor I don't know what. I jumped on the first treadmill, but for some reason it didn't work, she tried several times. When I jumped on the second one, I didn't see that the trainer actually started it, and I felt on my right knee. Painful.
Nikki is right, I should just start with yoga, and continue on my treadmill at home, I never had an issue with that one. After that, when the only thing I wanted to do was to go home and put some arnica gel and ice on my knee, the manager of the gym asked me to file a report of the accident. The trainer actually didn't even report the incident herself, I had to talk to the fitness manager about it, telling him that they should fix those treadmills who take five minutes and several push to start, because it was the main reason why I felt.
I know that being big is an issue for my balance, and if I was lighter I would probably not have had the same reaction....but now I have to deal with one more injury and that's not really good news!
I've been looking all over the house for those dvd's from Jane Fonda I bought last year, thinking that may be some exercise for an "older" public should be good enough for me right now since I'm so heavy, but I can not even stand on my right leg now! I bought those DVD's but actually barely used it so far because I was doing my gym in the pool, it's may be time to start with those dvd's and see how it goes.
