My husband and I joined the Y back in January since a few of my friends are members, and I'm more likely to go with people. I immediately started taking a class on Tuesday mornings, called Ultimate Conditioning. There's a Thursday class too, but my friends warned that Thursday instructor was insane so I stayed far away. Tuesday was hard, but not crazy. I felt like I got a good workout, but wasn't dying.
Well, now that I've done a month of Ripped in 30 and trained for a half, I felt ready to take on Thursday. A friend and I went together, and holy shit! This class made Ripped look like a walk on the beach. It was kinda like the Jillian videos with 3 minutes of strength and 3 minutes of cardio, over & over for almost an hour. In each strength segment we worked a different body part. My legs were SHAKING in the very first segment!
Today, I am so completely sore everywhere. I'm moving like an old lady, and it takes me 10 minutes to sit down. Oh the pain! If it'll get me looking like a lot of the women in the class, though? It will be so worth it! I will definitely do that class again, and would love to get to where I don't have to modify everything.
The best news was my hip didn't give any trouble at all in the class! Yay!
