OK, so maybe it's not such a long shot.
Last May I went for training in RPM. That training didn't go very well. I started day 1 of training with a sinus headache. After taking a decongestant, I sat in the corner of the room staring at the dust balls rather than absorbing anything the trainer said. I don't know why but decongestants really make me loopy. I passed the class, but I can't say that I learned much. To complicate matters, we didn't expand our fitness center as quickly as I was expecting. So I trained on RPM back in May and haven't practiced the tracks once since. I've attended RPM class at another facility, but I have not taken one single step to learn the choreography.
After four months of disappointment, I was really beginning to doubt whether my small fitness center in our quaint little town would ever have Les Mills classes. Until this weekend.
Until I met FLOW....err, I mean Body Flow. I discovered peace and tranquility while do my Tai Chi. I discovered sweat rolling down my back and chest as I tried to complete the standing strength track. I discovered that I actually do have abdominals and while I still don't love working the dumb things, I felt slimmer and more toned today than I had in a while.
So, while I still have a ton to learn about the "athletic mix of tai chi, yoga and pilates" which is called Body Flow here in the U.S., but Body Balance just about every where else in the world, I am excited to start learning my tracks and get the de-conditioned members of my quaint little town moving toward a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
