I could not get hold of my gym buddy. I even waited to start my workout in the hope she would turn up however she never did till I finished my workout. She had overslept and that is okay. In her absence my other gym buddy was already working up a sweat so I was able to get on with it. Though this is a good thing because at least I know when my schedule changes I can attend the gym by myself and still want to workout.
Whilst sat down on the bikes with the back my friend and I was approached by one of class instructors. He wanted to see if we would be interested in taking part in the class that was about to start called Body Pump. The name alone sounds scary but he assured me that you work at your own pace. Someone had a lost a stone in 6 weeks of Body Pump. Wow sounds impressive huh. I decided I would peep in to see what exactly they do so not to commit to something that might finish me off for the day when I have a family to tend to. From my observations they use weights on one of those long pole things and an aerobic step. There was no sweat inducing cardio movements from what I saw but I could have missed that.
Upon discussion I will give that class a go next week. I would try it this week but there is no way I could manage anything much straight after Zumba at my current fitness levels. So I need to keep up this working out situation so I can do more. Splitting gym time between classes and machinery sounds good to me and will give my body the variety it needs. I am only going to do weights 1-2 times a week. As my main aim is to trim the fat and keep toned. I will increase weights but I do not want to bulk up how I am I want to trim, then trim and tone and then fall into maintenance mode.
Have you seen the MTV show “I Used to be Fat”. I like the concept of goal setting. This is something I will introduce very soon. At such a point I will start keeping a food diary, just because apparently it is a good thing to do.
