It's funny the difference half an hour makes...the 8:30 AM group they call the "weekend warriors" and they just want to be punished. It felt a little Animal Houseish after a while:
It was almost like I couldn't make them work hard enough - especially this one character in the back that kept yelling "thank you" every time I told them to turn the resistance up. I couldn't tell if he was joking or not, so I kept telling them to add it on. Bizarre.
The 10 AM group was there for a workout, not a beating. We did the same profile, minus the game, and it was much less sadistic. They worked hard, but they also seemed to appreciate it when I encouraged them. The 8:30 group seemed to want a drill sergeant.
Anyway, tonight I'm teaching FIT then strength, if anyone shows up. I won't lie, I have nothing planned yet. Not even a little. I should get on that I guess. The FIT group is usually fun and may be open to doing stuff that involves leaving their little workout bubble. Not sure if I have the time to get very creative at this point though...we'll see. Since the FIT class is supposed to be mostly cardio, I may adopt Queen Jillian's format and do 6 minute sets: 3 minutes cardio, 2 minutes strength, 1 minute abs. Actually, that sounds totally reasonable. Let's go with that.
|I have a new fitness goal. I want to be so little I can do this to a client and not break their kneecaps. I wonder if she's wearing a harness.|
Oh, and I painted the house this weekend. Again. Seriously, the novelty has worn off.
Before all the work:
With the new siding:
