So after quite a late night last nightÂ I got up early for the 9.10am combat class, hoping they might do a practise with the filming release. But worse than that, no instructor turned up! People started walking out after 10-20mins and the class was cancelled. The ironic thing was that there were probably about 5-10 combat instructors there coming for the filmings, including myself, yet none of us had music anyway. The weirdest thing was I chatted briefly with a couple of the members and I asked them what this new release is like, and she replied that it’s good, but she liked the old one better…….that was just strange hearing her say “the old one”Â since she was talking about BC32 which we haven’t even released yet!
I wandered back down to Studio 2 where a step class was commencing soon and ran into Wayne again. Shortly after this Vanessa turned up and I chatted with these guys until the class started and I went back out to the LM clothing store to drool over the clothes. I accidently left a pair of my shorts at home so I just HAD to buy an attack pair. I don’t have much attack clothing anyway so I could do with them anyway, even though I’m broke! I drooled over the newest range of shirts that they have for all the programs, but I really just can’t justify NZ$140 for them, I could buy 2 tops for that! I know they’re good quality, but until I’m richer I need to stick to below $100 per item. While looking at clothes I was fortunate enough to run into combatchez…………the girl with noknickers! 😆 I have to say, through running this site being recognised isn’t something I’ve gotten used to yet……hehe.
Then headed back upstairs for the practise class of Body Balance 38. Jackie, Anita, Dr Dave and another guy who’s name I missed were presenting. I love my first impression of this release. It has a very different feel. Without giving too much away, I recognised 2 songsÂ that wereÂ combat cooldowns. Jackie mentioned at the start of the class that this release has a change of format, a different flow. She said that normally we work all the different body parts in each track, but this time the structure was slightly relaxed and weren’t necessarily in the right order. I was looking out for this during the class, but I didn’t notice a huge difference from usual. There still seemed to be the basicÂ structure of Tai-chi, sun sals, standing strength etc, but maybe I’ll notice more when I do it again. There’s a couple of new moves in this release, but I don’t want to give too much away.
After this I ran into Vanessa again and we went and had lunch. Nike store was the next destination……..since we don’t have a Nike store in Adelaide I just drool when I go in there. I love their Nike Frees they’ve got at the moment! Oh man…..I have to keep telling myself “no mel, you can’t afford it”. I have to walk out of there wiping the dribble away.
So this is quite a full update, There’s combat, pump and attack this afternoon, so I might go along to combat and see if they’re practising the latest release. Hopefully there’ll be an instructor this time…..lol. Pump…hmmm, might give that a rest, but I’ll definately stick around for attack. Vanessa tells me that they’re definately rehearsing the filming release tonight.
