Body Attack!

It seems that spring has finally sprung in Greenville! We had great weather this past weekend, and it’s supposed to be 80 degrees here this Friday. However, that means its going to be bathing suit season much sooner than I’m used to (aka you’re lucky to be in a bathing suit in Mid-June in Michigan). This means I’m really working on trying to get back to my regular workout routine, and out of my current routine of cuddling with Lola and eating candy while watching TV in my apartment. Luckily, as Lola gets older, her ability to not potty in her cage continues to improve, making it easier for me to get to the gym without having to worry about coming home to a huge mess. While I do like running and working out independently, I personally much prefer taking group fitness classes. Maybe this is due to the fact that I tend to be a more social person, but I feel like I tend to work harder and get less bored when I’m working out in a class with a teacher telling me what to do. Luckily, the gym I go to has offers a wide variety of classes every week, as well as having multiple locations that I can go to for different classes. Back in January they started offering a new class, and let me just say, I love it. The class is called Body Attack, and it’s a high-energy cardio class that always makes me feel like I got a great workout, plus it’s just really fun. I would describe it as a mix of Zumba, high-intensity aerobics, and sports conditioning. We do everything from jumping jacks, Rockette-style kicks, high knees, sprint drills, and cheerleader-esque tuck jumps, and it’s all set to fun energetic music. I’m always exhausted after this class, but in a good way, and it works your whole body in 55 minutes. I know that not all gyms offer the Les Mills classes, but if your gym does, I would highly recommend checking this class out!
