So it’s no surprise that I’m a big fan of Bodyrock.tv. The workouts are quick but super intense and when a part of my normal routine have resulted in an increase in my strength. I also love that…
-I can do the workouts in my living room with minimal equipment (in the beginning I only had a timer and a jump rope), I improvised several of the workouts using dumbbells, walls for knee raises, etc.
-I can wear whatever I want as long as it is supportive
-I get out of it, what I put into the workouts. The harder I push myself (and its me alone in the living room pushing) the faster I see results.
-Its not something I can do everyday. For one I don’t think it would be good on my knees, I mean I suppose I could do modifications and do the routine everyday, but to me that defeats the purpose of bodyrocking.
-If you do decide to buy the equipment it can be a bit expensive depending on your budget. I ended up buying a sandbag before Christmas since they were on sale. It came in the mail a few days ago and I was shocked to see that it didn’t come with the sand! So I made my way to Home Depot where the only sand I could find was a 50 pound bag, I went ahead and purchased it because it was only $3, but then I had to turn around and pay $8 to take a cab home-I suppose I might have tried to carry it home if I had not just completed a spin class…mmm, no probably not.
So I do love a good gym class.
-I love the energy in the classes
-I love the teaches pushing me
-I love the cute guys who venture into the mostly female spin classes
-The music in a good spin class, it makes me forget about all pain, and without listening to the radio it keeps me up to date on the latest music.
What I don’t love about the gym
-People who end up on the machine next to you and smell like they haven’t washed their clothes in a year.
-Umm, kinda going along with the one above, I have to have clean, non-holey clothes.
-The walk there, to and from takes 20-30 minutes. That’s a huge junk of time.
So for those of you who are avid gym goers, what do you love or hate about the gym?
