Tonight's Interesting Experience

Tonight was my second encounter with the evil exercise class known as Boot Camp. To make matters worse, the instructor was being re certified so we had an observer the whole class and he was trying extra hard because he was being marked. This all spelled trouble for me.

Before the class started a group of us were standing around when two young women walked in and said they were trying it for the first time and asked who was the class. Hard, but good was the response from the room. 

Looking at these girls, they were clearly in better shape than I am, but they kept looking to me through out the class as they struggled to keep up. They ended up leaving about 1/2 way through. It was a very weird experience for me to not to be the person struggling the most in the class.

I even saw some improvement in my ability to do burpees, push ups and other crazy exercises that are the mainstay of the class.

While I never thought that I would be a regular in a class that starts with running, has skipping in the middle and burpees and push ups everywhere you turn, but I think that may just be what is going to happen.


  1. WOW! I am so impressed! keep it up you deserve it!

  2. :) Great job! I love that feeling too when I'm clearly running harder, faster and longer than the thinner girls at the gym! It's a great testament that being skinny doesn't necessarily mean physically healthy!

  3. I don't take part in Booty Camp but my best friend does. She LOVES it and looks fantastic.

    Her comment to newbies: There will come a day, between you first class and your second class, that you don't want to return...you need to return
