Warrior Fitness

I bought a Living Social deal for 20 classes at Warrior Fitness for $20. It looked like a great deal and the studio was near my house making it easier for me to attend.  One summer in college I went to bi weekly kickboxing and not only was it a good workout it was a great stress reliever.  Before starting Warrior Fitness they wanted you to attend a new member orientation. I emailed hoping to get in this weekend and as luck would have it they and one opening for today.

I showed up a few minutes early and was greeted by Kelly who had me hand over my voucher and fill out a little paperwork. Getting there early I was able to watch the class before me finish up and I started to worry. Every single person was sweating.....dripping sweat! What did I sign myself up for. Oh well I was there and I was going to do it. We started a few minutes late as we were waiting for the rest of the people to show up. There was supposed to be 8 of us, and only 4 of us had showed.

After giving us loaner hand wraps and boxing gloves it was time to get started. The first half of the class went by fast, with a combination of hits, sprints around the rooms, squats, lunges and push ups! The second half of the class was more of the same, but I could instantly tell that I didn't fuel myself properly for this class. My hands were shaking and it was getting hard to remember the combos because I was tired.

Overall it was a great class I am going to need to invest in some hand wraps and boxing gloves as I was a little skeeved out by the smell of using used gloves. Good thing they are running a special for $29.99 for both gloves and hand wraps. I hope they are still having it next time I go in as I don't want to use loaner gloves again.

I didn't have sweat stains, but I was sweating and actually had to stop and take breaks during the class to keep going. I am looking forward to continuing the rest of my 19 classes - it should be interesting how I can fit them in over the next 60 days. Of course I am not sure if it was the best idea to try a new class the day before a 5K, hopefully my legs will still want to move tomorrow.
