BODYCOMBAT with Shane

I finally combatted with the legendary Shane of McLaren Vale. ­čÖé

Shane has been a member of the groupfitness.org forum for a while and in the past Natty and Alexander have made the long trip down to McLaren Vale to combat with him. But back then I was teaching Thursday nights and unable to go.

So now I finally got to go, although forgot to let Natty AND Sofie know that I was going, but we will definately do the trip again before we go to The Netherlands.

Shane did BC36 which I’m really beginning to love, and he did an awesome job. Very impressive, especially considering he’s a relatively new instructor and meanwhile Dee got all clucky giving Connor cuddles just outside the group fitness room (I swear, combat music puts Connor to sleep just nicely).

Friday 13th

Not sure if I’m superstitious as such, but this Friday the 13th ended up being a pretty full on day.

Today began with an emergency dental appointment for Alexander with a tooth infection which resulted in root canal treatment. But that wasn’t all that freaky or anything, but what WAS freaky was that the dentist turned out to be a participant from the gym….

Then, when she began drilling I decided to leave the room, since I hate dentists and I can’t stand the sound of the drills…..I wander out to the waiting room, where I see another gym participant sitting waiting with her kids.

Next we walked around Tea Tree Plaza where I saw briefly an old PT┬áclient, but she didn’t spot me so I kept moving on. The next PT client I ran into was also a┬áfriend who I stopped to talked to, since we hadn’t seen each other again since last year when I first fell pregnant. Alexander went into the newagency after getting bored with our talking, lol.

I thought I couldn’t possibly run into anyone else after that…….4 people I’d seen from the gym, but then seconds after saying goodbye to the last PT client I walked straight into a regular Bodypumper from my classes……on her lunch break from work. Only a quick chat to her as obviously she had to go back to work.

Right, so I go get a drink with a slightly bewildered Alexander…….he gets a coffee at Gloria Jeans and I dash upstairs to get a Boost Juice, where I say “hi” to the Child Care Manager at the gym…..

Thankfully we didn’t run into anymore people, cuz as it was we didn’t get as much done that afternoon as we would have liked!

Last classes

I’ve been gradually winding down the number of classes that I teach over the last couple of months, and tonight I announced that it’d be the last time teaching my Pump/Balance combo at Goodlife (formerly known as Zest). I feel proud that I’ve managed to come this far, but with only a week left to go before my due date, it’s time to stop for now ­čśë

I’ve only got one more balance class left to teach on Thursday at Fernwood and then I’m done.

Zest sold

I’ve just found out via my own forum that Zest, the gym I work for, has been sold to Macquarie. I find it particularly amusing that I find out first via the internet rather than from work, but then on the other hand I have to admit I did forget to check my pigeon hole last night.

Interesting, I wonder if I’ll be gone before Goodlife take over? Dunno what their timeline will be like for taking over?

The new club being developed by Zest in North Adelaide has been in planning for quite some time. I put in an application for GFM there last year sometime, but then the planning for the club was delayed due to some sort of approvals. I heard recently that the club was intended to be opened around April/May this year and they were taking applications again for all staff positions. It’s been advertised internally to staff here, but since I’m due in May this has meant I don’t have the opportunity to apply for these positions now. However now I’ve heard that Goodlife plan on opening the North Adelaide Club in December, so I dunno what’s happening to all the plans now?

Maybe if the opening of the club is delayed I might be back from The Netherlands by then and I’ll be able to apply for a job in the new club then!

Wow, what a spanner in the works!
