No, not the Easter peeps...my workout peeps!
First off, this here is Brad. He owns the joint. He does the strength training. See that smile? He's always smiling. Even when he's telling you to do something horrible like 50 Indo Board pushups in two minutes, he's just smiling away. It's hard to hate the guy when he has such a nice smile. I think that's part of his strategy - he's so upbeat, you just have to keep going. Next he'll have us whitewashing his picket fence!
Disclaimer: Brad doesn't really have a picket fence. But he is considering putting in a swimming pool and I would not be surprised if he has us all digging the hole one of these days...and we will, happily!
This is Linda. Isn't she cute?! I just love her, so much so that I let her drive me into a puddle of sweat on Mondays and Tuesdays in the cardio room. Plus she tells fun stories about her kids and horse to distract us from the time not moving fast enough during our workouts. But beware - if she feels like she overate on the weekend, we all are gonna pay with an even higher intensity workout!
Disclaimer: Linda cannot possibly overeat. Look at her picture! She has a waist that rivals Scarlett O'Hara!
And here's Will. Doesn't he look sweet? But look deeper into his eyes...those are the eyes that get this evil squint when he's thinking of ways to torture us on Wednesdays in the cardio room.
Disclaimer: Will is not really evil. He's a nice young man. But he needs to remove the word "burpee" from his vocabulary.
It's been eight weeks since I started working out with my peeps. I have seen great results in the form of fitting into smaller clothes, 12 pounds lost and, oh yeah, strength, endurance and nice muscle tone. It's crazy how much I like doing this! Even on my worst days (suspended chain push ups, anyone?) when I'm struggling to get through a set, the encouragement I get from Brad, Linda and Will helps me so much. And I'm always glad I did the workout - it's kind of like childbirth...you forget the worst of the pain and enjoy the reward. Only in this case, I don't have to change any diapers ::grin::
