Alexander helped me sign up at the gym yesterday, but we didn’t actually do any classes, however tonight I went in on my own to do BODYSTEP (while Alexander fixed the washing machine which wasn’t draining properly). Since I don’t usually do step, I was a bit concerned about how I’d go following a class in Dutch, however I ended up being surprised at how many of the cues were in English. There a few moves I couldn’t follow without stopping to watch, but most of it I kept up with, and out of the 2 instructors on stage one of the instructors was excellent with visual cues. You really get to appreciate good visual cues when you’re doing a class in another language!
Another thing that surprised me was at how much I actually enjoyed step. I’ve never really enjoyed step, not because of the class but cuz I’ve always hated the music. Normally step trashes perfectly good songs and turns them into chipmunk girly lollipop songs, but this release (BODYSTEP 72) is awesome!!!!
So that makes a start to my training program. Why did I start with step, some of you may ask? Well since I’ve lost so much fitness and put on lots of weight I need lots of cardio. I plan on doing pump and weights aswell, but I’m having some hip and butt muscle trouble following my pregnancy, so I want to start with cardio. But out of the classes there’s limited cardio on the timetable.
I don’t dare to do jam in Dutch, I can’t stand RPM, I’m not ready for the onslaught of attack and there’s only 1 combat class on the timetable, which Alexander and I are finding it difficult for both of us to get to since one of us has to mind the baby. So BODYSTEP it was.
If the music always stayed this good I could possibly be bribed into teaching it one day if necessary.
