Today I got to workout with a trainer, named joey at Fitness Together. My dad knows the owner and she needed people to work with this trainer before he was "legit". I was supposed to go yesterday to do a full body workout but, do to technical difficulties and getting lost/not finding the place, I didn't get to workout with him yesterday. But today, I did find the place, woot!n
I got into the gym and there were three trainers working with clients. Joey came up to me and introduced himself. He said he wasn't going to be done with his client until 12:45 so at 12:30 I was to warm up. I jumped on the treadmill and did some face paced walking for about 15 minutes. Then I cranked it up and ran for about 10 more minutes. I had a good sweat going.
He asked me what I wanted to do today and I said kickboxing. I have done it before but not really as a work out. He got me some boxing gloves and we started working out. Most of the workout was high intensity, a lot of reps and him telling me to "hit it harder!". Every time he said that I wanted to laugh and say, "that's what she said". But I kept it in my brain. He was a very talkative trainer, which was good because I didn't want some gorilla juice head type of trainer that says two words every 10 minutes. He actually went to the same college as I did so that was a topic of interest for him to talk about. He was also an avid Michael Jackson lover. Joey also liked to serenade me during the workout...unfortunately he isn't my type. I was hoping for a gorilla juice head ;)
At the end of the workout I was dripping sweat and I smelt horrible. It was a good feeling though, because I haven't had that kind of intensity in awhile. We stretched at the end and he gave me an apple for the ride home. I ate the shit outta that apple, nom nom nom! I think I'm going to try and get another session with him for a full body workout. As for tomorrow, I'm going to do some running. I got a 5k on Sunday. My third one-I never though I would be signing up for 5k's every month. Crazy what happens when you lose a couple pounds.
What are you doing this weekend?
