This post is complete social sacrifice.
Here, you will see how uncool I really, truly am.
Or at least how easily amused I am.
Or, just as is my intent in posting this, you will see how easy it is to make workouts fun.
I was feeling super sore from yesterday’s “Full House” Fitmixer Boot Camp workout yesterday morning and half-dreading doing another weights workout. My old without-a-plan self would have ditched any weights workout last night and just sucked up a run of some sort, but thankfully, my friend Jamie was down to join me.
Jamie rolled on by after work and we leashed up Chloe for a nice little 4 miler. As we finished, I selflessly shared some of my beloved Fitmixer aminos with her (which she loved) and told her I’d be hitting up my boot camp workout. Curious, she stuck around as I logged on to see what today’s boot camp had in store for me today.
Guess what? Jamie got sucked in and stayed for the workout. And, just as I loved in the last boot camp workout, I really enjoyed the fact that a lot of these moves were new to me.
As we ran through one of the moves, Jamie turned to me and said, “Wouldn’t this be funny in a music video?”
I turned to her, one eyebrow raised, and said, “You mean like, middle school style?”
I didn’t bother to do any editing to this video because it’s way better just the way it is.
1. Take note of Jamie’s motherly scolding to me to scoot back as I get ready to start the video (like I would sit up by the camera to do it).
2. Ignore our terrible form and rest assured we did three “real” sets of these.
3. Laugh hysterically at our attempts in lifting both legs at the same time. And check out our never-wavering smiles as we do this.
4. Give Jamie serious props for her really cool geek-out at the finale.
And Robin, we kept your little fist pump in the end. We liked that part.
Idiots. In the best way possible. It’s a good thing I wasn’t born with that whole “embarrassment” gene.
We’re giving you Harvard baseball boys a run for your money. I bet you weren’t working your abs, arms, and legs during your little dance montage.
How do you make your workouts fun? Have you ever embarrassed yourself doing so?
