The Need To Change Things Up

frog yogaYesterday I realized I’m already feeling jaded about my fitness classes at the gym. I’m sorry but I’m just really easily bored like that ๐Ÿ™„

Diversity Kills The Flab

Especially if it’s the exact same thing week after week. And it has been the exact same thing week after week. No wonder the instructors can afford to stop and just look at us because ~ you know those ladies who are always up front? The ones who’ve been fitness class-ing for so many months now? Well, they can take over the instructor anytime she drops the ball. They’ve already memorized every step, move and sequence!

Both sides are apparently proud of it, and I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. That was just to illustrate my point – coz in my case, repetitiveness enhances the flab.


Going AWOL One Too Many Times

So lately I’ve gone absent a few times already, working out at home instead. And I do enjoy working out at home much more because I have control over certain things like, what type workout to do today, in what order and in what intensity. Like today I did Zumba for 40 minutes followed by a 16 minutes upper body strength training from Fitness Blender.

That, plus I could be doing the laundry at the same time! ๐Ÿ™‚ (Did I ever tell you I’m such a stickler for efficiency?)

And I know exercising by your lonesome can be, well, lonely. But imagining myself to be a fitness class instructor seems to do the trick for me ๐Ÿ˜€


Coming Back To What’s Lโค๏ธโ€ved

In any case, it does seem like I won’t be renewing my gym membership next month – maybe a break will be good. My already non-existent social life is gonna take a hit because this was my main means to socialize.

But I don’t feel too bad about it. On the one hand, I’ve really missed this blog as well as crocheting and, there are other avenues to keep in touch.

Now excuse me while I pretend I’m one of the Pussycat Dolls in this video – shhhh, it’s all about torching calories XD

  1. It’s definitely a bit boring when you do the same thing over and over… hopefully a little break will help you find interesting and fun exercises!

  2. As a professional fitness instructor, I agree with you. In many clubs, however, this is just the way group classes have evolved. We are told what to teach and how to teach it for a certain period of time, usually a month. If your gym is a Les Mills gym, BodyPump gym or Goodlife, then this is the reality. Gone are the days when an instructor could change things up with her own choreography. Shame really, as I feel it just makes the class boring.

    1. Oh really? I didn’t know that. Indeed, such a shame. I bet for the instructor it also takes away some of the fun. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
