Today I attended a Meetup event entitled Femme Fatale Fitness Boot Camp. This Meetup group is not a fitness-only group; we call ourselves the DC Adventurers. The organizer plans international trips(!), trips to activities for local foreign adventures (one I am sad I missed was a Korean spa), and lots more. This was my second Meetup with this group. Every time, the mix of people who attend are different.
Today's event was a BLAST. Well, that is if you can call burpees, medicine balls, and kettle bells "a blast."
The two women instructors were great -- super fit -- one was an undefeated champion of Thai boxing, the other was a Marine who said her heart was at this gym. I watched them do burpees, push ups, and other exercises like it was the easiest thing ever. I don't necessarily aspire to that, but I do appreciate a strong female.
They set up stations and 2 of us did the same station at the same time. It was fun to cheer my partner on and for us to try to propel each other further along. I can only imagine how sore I will be tomorrow! Will I make it to step class tomorrow night? Time will tell...
