I had grown bored with my fitness routine to the point where I was dreading another day spent on the treadmill/bicycle/elliptical. My new gym offers Body Combat classes and I just took my second one yesterday. It's a combination of kickboxing, tai chi, karate and self-defense moves. Lots of kicking, punching and "controlled aggression." My instructor is fit, friendly and knowledgeable and she really pushes the class. My classmates are diverse and many of them are helpful and friendly. Plus, I estimate I'm burning about 500 calories per class.
I plan to attend these classes 3 days a week and supplement with two days of strength training. I'm glad to have a fresh workout routine in place. Now I can look forward to going to the gym instead of dreading it.
