Working Out for Fun!

Yesterday was a day of FUN workouts :)

I started the morning with my first official run for my next half marathon, the Indianapolis Mini Marathon in May.

3 miles at about an 8 minute pace…not too bad if you ask me!

After running, I did a bit of foam rolling,  but my calves and legs are STILL sore today.  It’s a good sore though…

After my run and a shower, I ate some of my spinach and artichoke frittata with a side of fruit and pecan butter.  So yummy!  I didn’t even heat the frittata, it was delicious COLD :)

All this was great, but after work is when the real fun started:

Complete with finger lights and matching tank tops, our gym launched a new-to-us program–Bodyjam.

Bodyjam is a Les Mills group fitness class that is a 55 minute cardio dance workout.  Now, to some of you that may not sound like a good time…but I promise this is probably the MOST fun group fitness class I have ever attended.  I can’t even begin to explain it, you just have to try it for yourself. :)

Me and some of the other Fitness Center staff, and even some of the members had practiced the release a couple of times before the actual program launch so we could be placed in the crowd as “backup dancers.”  We had a blast!

Now, I am definitely NOT the best dancer, but luckily that’s not what this program is about.  It’s about having a great time and moving your body.  So despite my slightly stiff dance moves…I’d say the launch was an absolute hit!

Question of the Day:

  • What is the most FUN workout you have ever done?

  1. I am beyond jealous you are a les milles trained teacher, one of my dreams. this sounds like an awesome class, I so wish we had more classes like grit and jam. I still do love my body pump! headed there tonight

  2. So fun!! That was a great workout and foam rolling hurts sooooo much but it is good for you (at least, I always tell myself that). Our gym recently added BodyJam also but I have yet to take it because I have no dance skills so now I might have to check it out. Love the shirts they provided you!
