So Red Deer had a new gym open on Thursday and I joined. I honestly joined back in March and have been impatiently waiting for it to open and now it is open and I am so happy.
I went to the Grand Opening on Thursday night. The place is huge, it's the largest facility in western Canada for Goodlife. I have now been there every day since it's opened, I am concerned I am turning into a gym rat!! There is so much to do, so many classes to take and so many machines to work out on.
My favourite class is Body Pump, I have done a class like this before when I lived in Saskatoon and I am feeling exactly like I did back then a day later. Sore, and sore and strong. I don't like doing weight training that is simply me doing three sets of 15 for different muscle areas that gets boring. I love doing weight training in class settings, I'm more focused and because there are other people around I push myself harder. There are definitely some muscles I have not worked in a long TIME because they are super sore!
After workouts I am constantly treating myself to a quick massage in the massage chairs. I love those things!! Watch for a picture blog to come soon of my workouts and things!!
