Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet up with a fun group of women (and token male trainer) to participate in the first ever local Fitbloggin’ meetup. Roni, fearless leader that she is, took the reigns and organized a great activity for us at Brick Bodies, a local Baltimore area gym.
We did a weight training class called TRX Suspension Training that gave us an opportunity to mingle and sweat (some more than others…I don’t know how to NOT sweat) while trying to look as hardcore as our instructor.
It began innocently enough with a couple of suspension exercises that felt more like stretches. But soon enough I realized that we were not, in fact, messing around and that I was about to get my butt handed to me by some straps hanging from the rafters.
In all seriousness though the class was great. I really liked the challenge of the straps and the fact that you can make each exercise as easy or hard as you want depending on how much of your body weight you use. I would love to incorporate this type of strength training into my normal workout routine, so I am definitely on the look out for a gym that offers these types of classes.
After the class Julie and I had a little coffee date.
She has a great outlook on life and chatting with her was like a breathe of fresh air. I love hanging out with bloggers because you never run out of things to talk about. I could have talked for hours!
What is the most off the wall fitness technique you have ever tried?
