Baby got back! Woot Woot - of course you're talking to me right? Ha!
How many times have you found yourself in a class titled this? This was a first for me. The class was insane - let me rephrase that, Scott Baker is insane. Scott is the owner, operator of Gemini Fit and the genius behind this class and many others like it taught at the studio. This one hour interval type class included cardio, weights, plyometrics and lots of other sweat inducing moves! Literally for 60 minutes we did not stop moving and all though I was cursing him under my breath I was secretly loving it.
What did we do?
The type of training we did was called, Tabata. Tabata training is a High-Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) workout that lasts four minutes. You spend 4 minutes on each exercise, you do 2 exercises at each station. Work for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds for a full 4 minute count. I had never heard of this type of workout before (a day of first) but it was cool. Engaging, entertaining and strength building. If you feel like your workout is getting stagnant this might be just what you're looking for.
After 60 minutes of great music, encouragement (and torture) from Scott and making life long friends in the process of a shared experience; we were done. As I made my way to my car (crawling) I realized I felt really good but of course that is the sweet before the pain. Within an hour my whole body felt 'worked', my muscles were getting sore and my neck felt tense - I was dying for a soak in an Epsom salt tub but that would be hours away. Instead I powered through and after a recovery protein shake I felt better. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and would certainly return - in fact he's got a 30 minute intense ab class that I'm thinking might just be the right kind of torture I'm in to next.
Did I mention how great an epsom salt bath would be right now? Yea, got to go....
More to come!
