Fitness Friday Week 6 in Review
Well, I ended up working out 4 times last week, which is good considering I was sick part of the week. I have been working out at a gym since Ryan won a 2 week free pass for us both to a local place. The gyms are all really nice, and I especially love the group fitness classes. I also like to work out with the cardio equipment and weights, but group classes are my favorite! They motivate me and challenge me better than I am able to do on my own. I did try a Zumba class for the first time. Ha! Maybe not the best class for me. I am SO not a dancer. Though, out of the 10 or so people there, I would say I was in the top five for coordination. If you are familiar with my dance skills, you know that this means that the class was HILARIOUS to watch. NOBODY was coordinated, and we all looked funny, so it definitely made me feel more comfortable. At the end of this trial period, Ryan is really pushing for us to get a membership at the Y (cheaper). I am not sure if I want to or if it is more worth it to me to put the money elsewhere. I feel like I do pretty well finding ways to workout without the membership. Ryan, however, kind of needs a membership because he can't really lift weights at home or play basketball. Anyway, we'll see. I just feel like I can more efficiently fit my workout into our routine at home than I can going to the gym. It takes up the whole morning, it seems. You moms who have gym memberships, are you glad you do? Do you feel like going to the gym is just another big time commitment that pulls at you?
