that new gym….

January 9, 2013

I went! Its called Transform Group Fitness Studio and I was so excited that I went half hour early. No, not really that excited, I just read the timetable wrong – or  it could of been those tricky to read xcel spread sheets online…

But anyway, I liked it, and here is why;

*Its on a strange quiet street not far from here {the closeness ticks a box for me}, which in winter and the early darkness could be a bit daunting – I will just have to remember to not hang around for long after the classes.

*The owner/instructor seems lovely, a little disorganised/ too casual maybe… but her friendly, funky workout style is enough for me to get over my own crazy need for order {the way she interacted so well with everyone of every size was another tick}.

*The price is right up my alley – one fee for all, no joining fee, no contract {big big ticks for all three}

*Everyone seemed friendly and chatty, people chatted with me easily and even waved goodbye {meeting new workout friends….tick}

*The music was very loud {I kept asking J when I got home if I was yelling as my hearing felt muffled…} but it was super funky – and one goal this year is to dance more {so that is a tick}

*The classes varied and different from what I have been doing, they even have Bokwa {Go here to check out just what I am blathering about – I will report back when I have done a class :)} – and there is a good mix of styles in hourly sessions each morning/evening ie; boxing followed by Zumba {which I like for an extra long workout that can be tough followed by fun and rhythm}

So all up, while going there had me wondering just what the heck I had got myself into – from the warehouse style, open floor plan of the gym to the above ground temporary back yard pool right in the doorway to having little idea what I was doing moves wise in the Zumba class – I still felt like I was welcome {she had me come in half way though the boxing class and begin right then rather than sitting round for half hour} and in a place that I could enjoy working out in.

I am signing up, I will be paying my fortnightly payment of $40.00 { a little dearer than my old gym but still a great price!} and I will be getting my grove on doing both Zumba and Bokwa frequently :mrgreen:

Stayed tuned for results…. groove wise and fitness wise!

    My friend goes to bokwa there and I’ve been meaning to go with her. I’ll be the uncoordinated, fat, sweaty one having a ball:)

      It seems pretty good Sarah, I have yet to try the Bokwa (school holi’s prevention program in full swing). I am sure we will both do well….
