I spent almost 24 hours in a Fitness First gym this weekend. My results?
LOTS of sweaty clothes…
At least 50 repeats of Danny Byrd’s “Daydreamer”…
[And we’re all daydreaming now – dun, dun, dun – dun, dun, dun!]
More bottles refills than I care to count…
[You know your sweat glands work in overdrive when the guy – who weighs 150% of what you do – on the bike next to you suggests that the two of you are in close competition over who has dripped more sweat on the floor during the ride. I think he won – but only by a few drops…]
And in the end:
There are still more steps between me and a final certification, but this was the first big one. I’m excited to brush up my own spinning skills, learn some more choreography, and (eventually) be released in front of a live class!
This weekend’s training challenged me as an athlete, a student, and a coach. It also provided a place for me to connect with a room full of people for whom fitness is a passion and/or career. Although I was pretty exhausted yesterday, both mentally and physically (Nadia was right when she suggested that I’d be getting awesome sleep on Saturday & Sunday nights!), today I am feeling recharged, energized, and thankful that I can help people get fitter – and change their lives – every day.
Good thing, too – because I have lots to do after spending all weekend hiding out at the gym. I hope your weekend has left you feeling similarly recharged and ready to tackle the week!
The RPM 59 release is now seared into my brain – what’s currently stuck on repeat in YOUR head??
Were you inspired by anything this weekend? Tell me about it!
