I've tried my hand at a few local gyms and none of them even come close to fernwood. I love going to a gym where I am recognised and remembered. The trainers and instructors remembered me, even after a few weeks, and it really makes you feel special. You are not just a number but an actual person who they care about. The ladies at fernwood are just amazing! I feel I could write a full post on them alone. I've only been at the gym since the beginning of the year but feel like I am part of something special. Everyone who is a member of this gym is there for the same reason. To make their life better. There is no competition, there are no comparisons, just wonderful support and endless encouragement!
My favourite favourite classes at the gym are body pump and body combat but last night I gave Zumba a go and omg I fell in love! It's basically just my favorite dance moves put into a sequence in a gym room! Hilarious! I could not stop laughing the entire time! Best work out ever - twisting your abs and laughing - 6 pack in no time! The room was dark, the 'disco lights' were on, the music was pumping and 1 of my favorite instructors was keeping us moving! As I wiggled my booty I looked around the room and just smiled! Here I was surrounded by women of all different ages and all different sizes having the time of their lives! These ladies were shaking their groove thing without a care in the world. I literally wanted to stand up the front and cheer them on! There is nothing more motivating than watching women change their lives by keeping active and the beautiful ladies at fernwood help us do this with a spring in our step and a smile on our face!
Tonight I was at it again. My favorite class with another one of my favourite instructors! I only pump a very small amount but I am hoping that as the weeks pass my strength will increase! I'm scared of pushing myself but I know that if I work slowly I will get stronger without injury or without pushing myself and giving up! I am so lucky to have my best friend as my gym buddy! We push each other and motivate each other to go! Tonight all I wanted to do was sit on my couch and watch tv but I knew she would kick my butt! That's what I love about having her beside me. We both love the gym and it's an awesome chance to spend some fun and active time together.
So thank you Cassi and my trainers Melissa, Krystal and all the ladies at Fernwood gym Loganholme.
You all motivate me and inspire me to be my best self!
