Do you take group exercise classes?
If you do, where do you tend to stand/sit? In the front of the class? Off to one side? In the back? Do you always try to get the same spot/bike/machine?
When I was taking spin classes I liked to be right in front. I didn't want to look at people's butts. Yet I guess I didn't mind them looking at mine. Now on the rare occasion that I do take a spin class, I stick to the back corner, let the others have the prime seats.
For fitness classes I also used to try and secure a spot with good mirror access. I wanted to be able to watch my form. Now, it depends on the class. In boot camp I tend towards the back corner. I know my form is OK so let the others be in better view of the instructor. In boxing we run around too much to really have spots, but I do like to have a view of the mirror when we're stopped.
Yesterday my boot camp instructor (who I happen to be friends with) told me he wants me to be in the front. Um, OK. He said I was doing well and I should do that in the front, not in the back. So I promised him that next time I take the class I'd be in the front. I'm definitely not shy, so it's not an issue having people watching me, it's just a deviation from the norm. But it's all good and I'll let you know in two weeks how the view from the front was.
Any good weekend plans out there?
A few of my college girls are coming to visit tomorrow. We're kicking the get together off with a fitness activity. Imagine that! We're doing a private boxing class with my friend the boxing instructor. Then at night we're hitting the town and I plan on wearing my sparkly shirt. Woo hoo!
Have a fab weekend! xoxo
