BodyPump Obsessed

At lunchtime today, I took a workout break and headed to the gym with my dad. We had big plans for our afternoon workout.



I am just a little bit in love with BodyPump and have missed the class so much ever since we moved to Ocala. I took BodyPump multiple times a week when we lived in Orlando and since BodyPump is nowhere to be found in Ocala, I miss it terribly. Luckily my parents’ gym offers the class. We’re all members of the same gym chain, so I am able to use their gym for free when I am in town!

I took it easy today and used lighter weights during the songs that focused on squats and lunges since I’m still recovering from Saturday’s race, but I felt the burn big time during the upper body tracks. I loved it and my arms felt like Jello as I walked out of the class when it was over.  The burn I felt in my biceps and shoulders today reminded me just how much I adore the burn of BodyPump. It’s the best. Phew!


Lunch today was inhaled the minute I was done showering.


I assembled an easy meal of leftover whole wheat pasta and tomato sauce from Saturday night’s dinner and taboule.


I’ve tried taboule one or two times before and I adore it! I love all of the fresh flavors.


Now I’m about to head out to hopefully find a quiet place to work and study for the rest of the day. See ya later!

Question of the Afternoon

  • What is your favorite group exercise class?

BodyPump is obviously my all-time favorite group exercise class, but I also loved the boot camp classes that my old gym in Orlando offered. And Jazzercise is pretty much the most fun workout on the planet.

    I just joined a new gym in town that has all the LesMills classes. I can’t wait to try them based on what you’ve said. How did you fit them into your exercise schedule? (Ex. classes a few times a week and alternate cardio?) I’m in Valdosta if you ever want to join me in a class!!

    When you are working on improving your shape nutrition is one of the key success factors. Most nutrients are received from food, though, in order to enhance my energy my friend advised me to try nutritional supplements. The one I’ve tried first was Navy Seal Formula. And this is the one I am definitely going to stay with! It gives me incredible amount of energy and pushes me harder during my workouts. I see positive results in my endurance and strength. Now I am capable of visiting much more fitness classes than I used to.
