Today I went to my first ever Body Pump class. Although my whole entire body pretty much feels like jello, I LOVED it and can't wait to go back once I can move again.
I had heard such good things about the class and everyone kept saying what a great workout it is and how much everybody who has ever taken it loves it. I was a little intimidated when I first walked in because the other people had so much stuff set up. After introducing myself to the instructor and telling her I had no idea what was going on I felt much better. She was so sweet and was really helpful explaining what all I would need and how the class was going to work.
As we got started I knew my no strength training self was going to be in trouble. I already started to feel the burn during the warm up. The hour went by surprisingly fast and I really liked how it worked out the entire body. The different exercises kept my interest and while it was fast paced, I never felt rushed. The instructor did a great job explaining and demonstrating each exercise and showing how to modify them if needed. I'm excited to go back!
The rest of the day was spent reading by the pool (we FINALLY got some sunshine), eating delicious cookies, and hanging with my best pal. You know, really productive day.

Happy (almost) Friday!
