Well, yes I have – does it show?Indeed it does – when I got home from my first session George thought I`d been mugged.
But Pchaw to Beginners` Pain - it won`t always feel like this (they insist) so just Keep Going!
Why did I start going, though - I`ve never liked exercise and have hung grimly on to my figure with simple determination...
Beach Ready, for example, doesn`t just mean squeezing into your cossie, it means running into the sea with a lilo round your neck ready to save someone...
I don`t know where this person did hers, but everyone else in my class was twenty-two and wearing teeny-pants.
However, they were very kind and helpful, and generous with their pole-sharing. And after an hour I knew I`d cracked it!
Strangely, they urged me instead towards Starter-Pilates, which I must admit was enjoyable and educational (I mean – do You know how to find your Core Strength?); and also Flexi-Punch (loved this, and now I`m floating very like a butterfly).
I`ve been training for Four Weeks now, am at the pinnacle of my physical prowess and feel weirdly at one with the Rio Olympians.
For this New Me I`d like to thank my inspirational gym, my lovely husband, and whoever invented SweatBeGone leggings.
But what next? How can I satisfy this sudden Need for a new challenge?
