Group Fitness Classes

On my first day at college, I walked out of my Calculus Two class with my mouth gaping wide open. The teacher literally had just started. He walked into the room exactly at 4:35 and said, “My name is Professor Lupi. Everyone remember Integration by Substitution? Good.” He then proceeded to throw ten examples up on the board that were incomprehensible to me, and said, “Go home, the assignment is on the syllabus.”

So I walked out of there almost in tears because I had no clue what was going on; this class was going to be ridiculous! However, my friend convinced me to go to a Group Fitness class at my school, and that turned my whole day sunny-side-up.

I walked into the class right after getting out of calculus. The first thing I noticed that my mud-stained Asics were no match for the white Reeboks of all of the other girls. Now, I’m not much of a person to listen to, “Ready, girls!!?!?! And one, and two, and three, feel the burn!!!!!” but going to Michelle’s Fat Burn class put me in such a good mood. I couldn’t believe that I was actually in that class and kept laughing at myself. However, the perkiness and the optimism in that room brightened my day, and I found myself actually breaking out a sweat! The workouts we did were actually pretty tough. I could feel my abs working hard or my thighs begin to shake from trying to hold myself up against the mirror in a squatting position.

I never thought that those classes were completely serious, but now I have a different opinion of them. Being around way too high of a percentage of testosterone all day (I’m an engineering major) it feels good to be around happy girls. I definitely would recommend classes such as Fat Burn, Cardio, Spinning, and more. It’s a ton of fun and a great workout!
