Activity: Attend Fitness Class at the Wellness Center
Wednesday, January 8th at 6:45pm
The activity was to attend a group exercise class at the Wellness Center. I thought this would be a great opportunity to attend CardioKick class. I heard it was really hard, but you could get a tshirt if you went to the class 5 times – so here was my first. It was so tough! I have never been in a cardio class that had that intense of cardiovascular activity. We did moves from plyometrics to boxing – it was so intense. The running in a circle thing was torture. I met another girl in the class so she coached me through some of the moves. I’m so glad I went – I met a new friend, a new exercise class and I felt great afterwards. I’ve done the Insanity workout before, but this was just as intense. I think this class is a great stress reliever and I think the punching bag part can really help me unwind once a week. I will definitely be going back to this class!
