Group challenge blues

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Wow. I wasn't looking forward to my gym's group challenge, but I didn't expect to hate it. Poorly organized, poorly executed, poorly concluded. I am drafting an email to the gym letting them know that they should retire this program (it had been retired for 6 years before this year).
I'm sore and wicked pissed.
Time for a shower and return to reality.

    That stinks! I did a group challenge when I was a member of Lifetime. I LOVE Lifetime fitness. Their group challenge was just OK though. I really think it would be better if they split it into different groups depending on goals/how much weight to lose, etc.

    Ugh! They didn't clearly give out instructions, they changed rules till it was completely confusing, they spoke to us like children!
They didn't explain modified moves for those of us that can't do a bear crawl for more then 20 feet. I expect more from golds gym. They spend so much on marketing and their image that I think it should be at least as organized as a classroom.
And 50 burpees in a row are way to hard for someone with a 40 plus BMI!
