Friday’s Workouts – TRX and spin

Yesterday I went to TRX. There was another woman in the class so the instructor gave us a full-body workout. My core is particularly sore today! I sat in a cafe for a while to do some work, then I headed over to my usual gym for spin class. Angie is a fantastic spin instructor. She times all movements to the music, so you know when the tempo changes or the song hits a bridge or the chorus that you sprint or stand up or sit back down. Awesome. Yesterday was a lot hills and my quads are feeling rough!


Workout of the Day – TRX

I’d been interested in TRX for a while, so when a local gym that offers TRX classes was on Lifebooker, I snapped it up. At 20 classes for $20, I figured it was definitely worth trying.

After the first class…OMG. TRX is a humbling workout. It requires balance, strength, and coordination. I hadn’t been that sore since…ever.

Surprisingly, this gym is not overrun with new members using that fantastic deal. Classes are limited to 5 students, but I’ve had most of the classes alone so I can ask the trainer to work on specific areas. Today, it was my back. I’ve got a goal of doing at least on unassisted pull-up by the end of the year, so we worked on various back exercises, including low-rows.

I can’t wait for Friday’s class.
