if you do try...


If you do try...you may LOVE IT! I bought a group of classes at a yoga studio, and just sat on them. I was nervous. Why, I have no clue. I wouldn't know any one there. I have never taken a yoga class previously so I waited. Then on a whim I booked my first class, and I went. It was amazing!!!! I was still sore yesterday! I sweat (a LOT)!!! I was physically exhausted when the class was over, yet felt physically alert and exhilarated! I pushed myself in a different ways than I regularly do when working out. I am a convert - and I can't wait to go back!!!

I have been walking taller, and now I want to see if all the crazy things I used to be able to make my body do - to see if they will return (splits both ways, the foot behind the head...). My teacher was great. The studio was gorgeous.

Has anyone else felt a little timid before trying something new? Then completely fallen in love?! Has anyone tried any new work-out classes that they absolutely love??? Now I want to try them all!! I am now tempted to try all the other classes that have interested me (Bar Method, a pole-dance class etc!).

  2. I hate being the new person in class- so unsure of the routine and if you're doing it right, but once you get into the groove it's such an addiction! I definitely recommend Barre. I took in Dallas for a year and just recently joined a studio here that I really like (Barre Bee Fit)- if it's close to your work or home, I definitely recommend checking it out.

  5. Congrats on trying your first class! I'm always nervous to try new classes at the gym. I'm afraid there's an exclusive club and they're all going to laugh when I come in. But, I did try cycling two weeks ago and loved it. I've been back a few times since and will keep going! I really want to try yoga, but yes, that's another one that makes me nervous...

  8. I'd love to try yoga but I've haven't yet found a class with a time slot I could get to...I'll have to have another look! The best class I've been to recently was Aqua Aerobics; my best friend and I were the youngest there by 40 years but it was good fun :D

  9. I love yoga and just took my first budakon class (yoga and martial arts) and it was even more awesome then i could imagine!

    I am a fan of non-traditional workouts: I do belly dancing, boot camp and pole dancing. Barre class is next! It is something new and interesting that makes me work in different ways. Although, I don't recommend doing all of these things at once. You're body gets confused and starts working against itself.

  11. Yoga is crazy hard and makes you feel good! I have been really into Thai Kickboxing but it is super expensive :/

    GOOD for you for trying something new :)

  12. I love yoga, you wouldn't think it would be hard but oh boy it's tough. Have you tried spin??? I love spin I usually burn about 900 cal. in an hour, it's quite intense. I feel much better after though.

  15. I really want to try pole-dancing... I know that's weird, but I've heard it's an INSANE workout!

  16. I can TOTALLY relate, I had the same concerns about yoga but now I am completely addicted. It goes far beyond exercise and totally connects with your mind, body, and spirit - it is like a therapy session. The best! Next up, Bar Method.

  17. I felt the same way about Zumba and ended up loving it. I'm also looking forwar to taking my first Pure Barre class this weekend. Later this month I'll be trying a pole-dancing class too!
