Have you heard of Orangetheory Fitness?
I'm about to try it on Saturday. I'm seriously going at 7am because I'm afraid I'll chicken out if I do it any later in the day. I have to open my eyes, put on my shoes, and walk out the door. No excuses!
The way it works:
You wear a heart rate monitor, and they put your info up on a screen with everybody else. You basically watch the screen and make sure that your heart rate is in the zone they want you to hit during that time period. All with a coach and lots of bumping music.
Am I too old for this?
Am I too fat for this?
Will I die?
Will the heart rate thingy fit?
Will I be the fattest one in the class?
Will I leave before it's over?
Will I need to lay down on the floor during the class?
I have a friend who is obsessed with this, so I'm going to give it a try. Theoretically (no pun intended - ha!) it's based on research and should therefore totally work. I need to get my buns moving, so I'm ready to go for it. This is it. It's time.
I'll post a blog Sat to let you know how it went! I'm so scared!!
