I've been going to a CRAZY gym for the last two weeks and all I can say is....WOW! The dedication of the people that are there is INSANE! It's a gym that offers classes that are designed to kill you....just kidding....kind of. Within the first 10 minutes, you're already drenched in sweat. I like to think of it as my fat crying because it's melting off....whatever, it works. Don't judge me!
I've invited my friends and I don't think any one of them were prepared for what was about to happen when they walked in.
Not only do they offer classes in their facility, they've also started doing FREE outdoor classes on the waterfront. Which is pretty dang cool if ya ask me!
If you've been following my story at all, you know that a few years ago I was in a car accident that resulted in a pretty major hip surgery and a life long commitment to physical therapy. The person that hit me was texting and driving while going down an exit ramp at 55 mph. I was at a complete stop when he rear-ended me; the impact caused the seat belt to lock around my hips when I was propelled forward, which left me with a very broken body. Because of the accident, I had to have a partial hip replacement and have been going to physical therapy for the last 3 years....WEEKLY. The picture above is what I look like every time I walk out of my physical therapists office. It's definitely not for the faint of heart, but it helps me walk and deal with the pain that I am constantly in. In case you were wondering....The person that hit me....was completely unharmed.
I've been afraid to workout for a long time because I was terrified of injuring myself more or re-injuring what was still trying to heal. Something in my head clicked recently and I decided to just try. At this point, what do I have to lose? I'm already always in pain and I'm ANTSY all the time because I've never been someone that was "sedentary." So....Here goes nothing. Partial hip replacement, meet Shred 415, Shred 415....just....don't kill me! ;)
