What a weekend! I’m feeling everything I was last night, likes times a bazillion haha.
But it was all worth it because…
Let me take you through the gruelling, inspiring, mentally draining, physically painful and absolutely amazing 2 day BodyAttack module training.
It started out with me feeling refreshed, clean, excited and nervous- oh and not quite as stinky as I ended up getting.
And it ended up like this…
Totally spent, exhausted after having been pushed to our limits and to places we didn’t think we could go- just like we hope to do with our participants when they come to a BA class.
The above photo was right after our BodyAttack challenge
…which was after presenting and participating our tracks once for the day (with still another time to come), and the day after we did hours of technique, a masterclass and a fitness test (beep test, how many crunches/push ups in a minute and flexibility test).
Couldn’t you tell I loved it? Ha. The challenge included 15 moves, 5 of which were strength based, done for 1 minute with minimal rest (ten seconds) between each exercise. After one round we did a power track which was deathly before pushing ourselves through another round.
I didn’t manage to get in as much fuel as I did the first day due to having SO much to do, but it was still enough to keep me powered. There weren’t as many food photos as I’d hoped too, because I didn’t want to take away from my experience. Have to take a photo of my carrot sticks guys…bloggers problems haha!
But since I know how much you readers love hearing about what I ate here’s the run down:
Day 1 (all food eaten at the module)
- Breakfast: Same as Day 1
- Snacks: grapes, almonds, carrot sticks (eaten in the car as I drive)
- Lunch: Tuna with salad and topped with sweet chilli sauce
And here’s some of the food shots I did manage to get…
But apart from all the pain and hard work I still managed to smile- sneaky bag shot
Plus I met some pretty amazing people, like Eve our trainer- who is an absolute killer instructor and inspiration, not to mention she has the body.
Ps. I promise I own other workout tops!
And I made some new friends! We’ve got something pretty powerful in common: the love for Les Mills
, exercise, inspiring others, BodyAttack
and healthy living- how could we not
I’m now a trained BodyAttack instructor and I’m looking forward to going on a new challenge with Les Mills, to become more involved in this amazing culture and to continue to motivate others to healthier lives through kick-ass music, great choreography, and deathly exercises that push your limits- all the while having the best
time! That’s group fitness
for you… that’s Les Mills
