Adam and I decided to sign up for boot camp this summer at the local gym. Holy schmoley, let me say we did NOT belong there but we kept going back and I don’t know why. Well, I do….because we paid. ha ha
I got lapped running bleachers one day. Lapped. She had us doing things that I’ve never heard of but I think are probably common everyday moves for most people. Adam and I have been hibernating for too long I guess. Mountain climbers, skaters, jump squats, jump lunges, jump (well if you can do it while jumping you just should, okay), pulling one another (literally), burpees (well I call them mudruckers….not sure why but that is the only way I remember them), oh and the plank. By golly…..that is THE THING TO DO! Don’t you dare forget the plank. And, I will say at first there was no planking happening in this body but now there is…..for almost two minutes straight. Phew. Each class ended with 100 sit-ups of different types. She alternates in increments of 10-20 of each type and by the time I hit 100, well, nevermind.
Sadly, after each 45 minute session I was so full of nausea and gross fatigue that all I could do was go home and barely make it into bed and that is it. For the entire first week I had to log-roll to get out of bed!
All I can say is she is absolutely amazing. In incredible shape. AND, I love the quote she put on the back of our shirts because it is perfect:
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”
