2013 was a pretty awesome year. I took on some pretty fun challenges from becoming a personal trainer, to managing a part time job plus working full time, to getting back into some pretty intense workouts. I cannot wait to see what 2014 has in store for me:) I love this little space I have to just write:) I need to take advantage of it and use it more often. Sadly, my last post was from August. This is what happens when I get busy, I suppose. So one goal I have for this year to step out of my comfort zone more often. I got the job at the Y by taking a chance. I got a new “classroom” by taking a chance. Time to make the most of things and think more positively.
Monday morning I headed to the gym a little later than I normally would have. Staying up late and watching the Eagles actually win a game trumped early AM gym time. Away I went to the 9 AM class which is with a trainer I personally do not like. He is very arrogant, makes many inappropriate remarks and just makes me feel uncomfortable in general. Talk about stepping out of your comfort zone. I hit up “my” spin bike before class in hopes of offsetting my nerves a little. This guy really gives me the creeps, but I am sure there are plenty of patrons who think he is amazing. I do not.
I watched this trainer struggle to set up the equipment needed for our workout. I listen to him yell at us that this was not a social hour. I even tuned him out when he made his juvenile remarks that belong in a locker room, maybe. I busted out the workout and laughed when one of the other participants in the class commented that he could not have done that workout. I think she was right. He was content to sit on a plyo box and just kinda watch/laugh to himself that we were struggling to get through this killer workout he designed. WHATEVER. I stepped out of my comfort zone, went to a class with a trainer I cannot stand, and did an amazing job!
Here’s to an incredible 2014! Looking forward to many exciting opportunities!
