I typically don’t investigate where I’m going when I set out on a new adventure. Mostly because it practices my flexibility. So when I showed up to Plunkett Fitness I didn’t really know what to expect. However, walking into the gym and seeing all the weights, dumb bells, and bars I knew I was in trouble.
I have never been a weights kind of girl. I prefer taking classes. I think it comes from my dancing background and how I grew up, but I made a commitment and I was going to go for it the best I could! So I warmed up with the group, and paid close attention to the directions that were being given. Luckily, everything is done in reps. Being the new kid I always had a spotter close by, but I had something else too. My own personal cheerleaders! There wasn’t an activity that I tried that Jamie and his staff didn’t holler out encouragement when I felt like I couldn’t go any further. I even surprised myself and my ability to keep going even when I thought I was too tired and would normally have quit.
I, of course, had no weight on the bar. I even laughed more often than not at them when they showed us what we were going to work on. Mostly because I was full of doubt and was defeated before I even began. Every time they had more faith in me than I did myself, and they proved me wrong every time as well! We may have had to modify the suggested weight to the bar minimum, and there was a couple of times that the staff had to help me finish my reps, but I kept pushing through and succeeding every time! I felt great, and I had a little more belief in myself too!
