*Susan Laney was my BODYFLOW trainer for my initial training in January!! She presented on the BODYBALANCE/BODYFLOW 65 DVD!!
We also signed up to take BODYCOMBAT and SH’BAM, but after six classes – it was the end of the day for me. When you sign up for an event like this, you pre-register for the classes you want to take. Classes with equipment (BODYPUMP, BODYSTEP, RPM) can fill up quickly. Sometimes two classes were offered at the same time. RPM and GRIT were held in a different room. Steph and I signed up for classes that were all in the large main room. Instructors and Les Mills fans can attend an event like this!
(Sweaty already from the first two classes!) We were given bracelets for the classes we signed up. This gave us access to the room.
BODYPUMP 94: Great tracks and I was dying using the SMARTBAR for the chest track! Unique choreography for the warm up too! Legs were dying on lunges.
BODYSTEP 100: I’m really enjoying step and it was fun to get to do release 100!
BODYJAM 73: Biggest surprise of the day for me! I LOVED THIS WORKOUT! SO MUCH FUN!! My first time taking jam!!
CXWORX 19: Great plate work in tracks 3/4. Was dying using brand new tubes!
BODYATTACK 89: Very enjoyable for me, except my muscles were dead. Clap push ups!!! I took a little time off and stood off to the side to take pictures/videos!
BODYFLOW 69: Already obsessed with the music. Long twist track. Gorgeous track 9 song (hamstrings/forward folds). Some challenging balance poses. Or my legs were just dead??
It is BEAUTIFUL outside today!!! I have my eye on a local half marathon on June 20th, so I need to start running more often. My goal is 3x a week and I’ve planned out the “long” runs for each weekend. I’m hoping to run 3-5 miles at least two times on the weekdays. I’ve been hitting it pretty hard at the gym teaching and taking a variety of Les Mills classes, so I’m not giving those up! I’ve been teaching pump, cx and flow each week. I’ve been trying to take step and/or attack as well. When I went for my run today, I wasn’t expecting much… I’ve taken a few weeks off. I guess the cardio classes are paying off, because I had a great run! I did push myself and got my heart rate up pretty high. When I finished, I was huffing and puffing! I guess that means I pushed myself!
Trying to be a beast teaching CXWORX…broke my first tube in the middle of track 4 a few weeks ago! (It was an old tube that probably had a weak spot)
I ordered the Reebok Cardio Inspire Low shoes a few weeks ago for cardio classes (ATTACK/STEP). I had been taking these classes in old running shoes and all the jumps felt terrible. I wasn’t sure about these shoes the first two times I wore them, but I guess they “broke in” because they feel great now! They are NOT for running (they are neutral and I wear stability-Brooks) so they are strictly just my studio shoes for jumping around!
Loving my Jamberrys and I tried solids on my hands for the first time. They look great and it is nice to have something without a print.

Eating so much sushi lately. Our one grocery store has a guy come in and make it fresh. It’s SO GOOD! I could eat it everyday!
