It Didn't Kill Me!




Some of you may know that I have been doing the "Get Ripped" exercise program, 3 times a week, with Jari Love, since Sept of 2011. I absolutely love it, and through that class, have met some wonderful ladies in our community. I also work out at home with her DVDs another 2 times per week. With this program and a healthy diet, I can honestly say, that I am now, at age 54, the fittest that I have ever been in, in my life.

Recently, Jaris' fitness center, in the big city, introduced Cardio GX, and a couple of the ladies attended on of the classes. The day after,  I got the full report, and was invited to try a couple of classes out. My friends,  told me, and I quote," It'll kill you...but you will love it!" OK...one of these ladies runs marathons..and I am was a bit worried, that I may not be able to get through this class.

So, last evening, all 3 of us country gals, carpooled into the big city, and attended the GX Cardio class. Your particulars, height, weight, and age are entered into the system. You wear a heart monitor just under your chest area, and ride a stationary bike, with an instructor...a very fit male instructor....and go through a series of cycling intervals for 45 minutes straight. You work up to different levels, (gears) on your bike, from level #2, which is super easy, up through level #22...which is super hard. Everyones heart rate, calories burned, and  the  intensity level at which they are working in displayed on screen, so you can see at a glance, how you are doing.

At first it was a bit challenging, but after a few minutes I was into the "zone", and really got into it! It was a lot of fun, and the time flew by. I ended up burning 390 calories, and really felt that I had worked hard.  So I am going to go again next week. Above,  is a little promotional clip of this type of workout. If you have Cardio GX, in your area, I highly recommend it...it was fun!

good for you!! How fun too!

We have a spinning class at the health club I joined, but I have yet to try it. Time at the club has been minimal at best lately, I really feel like crud when I don't go. Can't wait to get back in the groove after the holidays!!
