Power Pump

You guys, I had this idea ... now stick with me because I, for one, think it's pretty revolutionary ... I thought since it's January I could maybe set a goal for the year, and maybe I could get in better shape by joining a gym. And so that's what I did! Don't you think that's a good idea? I wonder why more people don't do this. Do I have to set all the trends around here these days? Gah!

OK, kidding aside, I have been to beginner spin class (loved it) and went to Power Pump at 5:45 a.m. today. Quite frankly it was a bit early for me and I nearly killed myself when I drove completely through a stop sign because I wasn't paying attention. MSJ, please don't tell Mama. I know you will, but please don't.

I was happy with the class, however. I am not a big "splits" kind of worker-outer. I like to do something in an hour and I want it to be as all-over-body as possible. And since I cannot have Trainer Bob giving me personal guidance in functional training, I have to resort to the local fitness experts.

Power Pump is good as you work all of your major body parts intensely with a barbell and dumbells on a step. I think it's a good complement to my regular schedule of pilates and functional training. Just once in my life I want to be shirtless in public and not feel like RB McBitchtits.

Still, I am all kinds of sore in a good way. Not over-the-top but I can tell I haven't worked out like that in a while.

Anyone else on a fitness kick in 2008? I've lost 3 pounds in a little over a week!
