Over the last few weeks I have been going to a few classes at the gym to try and maintain my fitness over the winter. I have been going to circuit training and went to a class called body-pump! I didn’t even know what body pump was until I got there and to my horror found out that it was a load of exercises with weights. I thought about making a run for it, but decided to stay and see how it went.
I found it difficult to do some of the exercises due to my lack of balance. I was stuck right in the middle of the class so everybody must have seen me wobbling around. I really struggled at one point and had to sit a couple out.
After it I felt great because I had a really good workout. My quads were agony after it for a day or two but that can only be a good sign, it means I must be doing me good. I want to try to keep up my classes over the winter so that come the better weather I am as fit as a fiddle! I think its the best way to try and maintain core fitness and strength when the weather prevents you from getting out.
