Okay, sashay it back in people and put down your MC Hammer pants, I said work it not twerk it! Although, after my post, you may just want to petition your local Zumba teacher to incorporate "Twerk it" into your hip shaking class. Disclaimer: I in no way will be or can be held responsible for you hot mamas out there getting your groove back and shocking your husbands nationwide.
Soooo, if you just happened to be bored out of your mind and scrolled down....or your computer was possessed from hitting tab too many times, (either way is fine with me, really) you will see its been quite a while since I posted on The Daily Sweat. It's not from lack of sweating mind you (ummmm-get your mind out of the gutter...and btw, while you're there, can you find my missing pink shoe lace?)
Let me explain. Since relocating to the good ol' Volunteer state and recovering from my umpteenth injury, I've been weekly logging miles on the bike (spinning) and foot (running) as well as doing some Yogilates. Yea, that's right... Yoga + Pilates...some people are so clever with words aren't they? Oh and I'm sure you were just baffled by what I meant in relation to foot miles.
I've also trained several people on the couch to 5k and recently began working with a client twice a week at her home. In September, I will be leading a couch to 5k group at my church. I also hope to pick up some more local clients.
My current typical week looks like this:
Monday-run 3-5 miles
Tuesday-train client (and until right before vacation spinning and Yogilates)
Wednesday-run 3-5 miles
Friday-run 3-5 miles
Saturday-earning medals for laying on the couch all day eating Doritos
Sunday-practice kickboxing on myself for indulging in corn chip deliciousness
I am also currently in the Z corral when it comes to training for the Chicago half-marathon that I am running in September. I'm quite anal so this is very unlike me. But, since moving I just haven't found my old running niche (or my shoe lace for that matter...) In all seriousness, it would really help if you found my shoe lace. It appears my lack of training is all your fault. You really should practice taking responsibility for your actions.
I've got to speed up my training and include long runs on the weekend again. However, I did run the Sunday before last, so I think that should count. Okay, so maybe not. But, being the genius I am, I think I solved the problem. I put some new tunes on my shuffle. Twerk it may or may not have been one of the songs on said playlist. I'll let you know how that turns out.
But, only if you return my shoe lace.
So, like Alison from Pretty Little Liars (what? it's not just 13 year old girls that watch that show) Work it Wednesday is being resurrected from the dead...or brought back to life...or never was dead....oh the suspense is killing me!!!
So what has your workout schedule looked like...in lets say...oh the last year? Comment and let me know how you worked it out on this Wednesday. Do tell.
Then, just for kicks, go "twerk, twerk, twerk"...Miley Cyrus will thank me.
Yes, yes we began bootcamp over five weeks ago. We started at my house but just like God, he opened up two locations for free right away!! We grew from two people to ten and will continue to grow.
I pray before every workout what we should do and the other night Val burned 800 calories even! Wow!!
The girls' favorite part is "recess" where we master Yoga moves. They absolutely love it. Each lady is taking AdvoCare and just go on and on about how amazed they are that it works.I would NEVER pressure them to buy it-its just come from hearing other ladies talk about it.
Personal training is something I've done since I was 19, I owned a franchise of Jazzercise and also personal trained. I took a brief respite but still worked out while we served in inner city ministry and fostered kids. It's funny how God brings you back to things.
My favorite thing is to empower people and show them that they can do more than they think they can. If you are interested in attending class, we are starting and early morning, mid morning and night classes. We also are holding classes specifically for the elderly so if you have a grandparent that needs to do some light exercise, send them our way. You won't regret it!
