The Warrior In Me

by Lori on May 26, 2011

Some people love their running, others are elliptical fanatics, and yet others are crazy for group fitness classes. I’m pretty open to most types of exercise, but there is one I love. It brings out the inner warrior in me.

I’d like to think that I’m a lover, not a fighter. Except for when I’m in Combat class. I’m a fighter. I love how I feel when I leave the class – a “good” exhausted. I love that I’m surrounded by friends. Most of the time, the music is fantastic.

I’ve been going to Combat class for nearly two years now, and find that if I don’t have my fix of it, I get cranky. It has turned out to be my best stress relief tool.

If you had asked me after I finished my first class if I would ever think about instructing the class, I would have had the laugh of my life (after I was done gasping for air). And yet here we are … I am a month away from a Combat instructor training weekend.

The description I was given of the weekend? “Hell.” Awesome. At least I’ll be going through hell with a friend. We’ll pull through it together.

I’ll post more about this as it comes closer and happens. That is, if I survive hell… At least there’s the potential that it’s fun hell.

Wednesday workout: Body Combat class … 550 calories burned.
