I embarked on yet another new fitness class at the Army gym. What can I say, I just can’t get enough!
The new class that I tried out yesterday is called Power Flex and is one of those classes you love to hate, and hate to love.
Yeah, because as you can see in the photo below, part of the workout is just getting all the needed equipment for the class.
And yes folks, we used every single piece. And I’m feeeeeeling it today.
Power Flex can be best described as a bootcamp style, aerobics, pilates, bodypump class infused with Jillian’s 30 day shred. Uh yeah, and add in several running ladder drills, and sprints around the gym and you’ve got yourself a Power Flex class that will leave you sweating and shaking by the end.
Oh my. Oh my indeed.
I kind of wanted to surrender several times during this class. Mostly because my abs were burning and my thighs were cramping from all the 80’s style aerobics moves.
I especially loved this class because of the added running drills, and the high cardio additions [think Jillian 30 Day shred, where every so often she’s got you doing jumping jacks etc].
This class seriously had a little bit of everything – strength training, cardio, stretching, ab work, push ups, running drills, and even Pilates.
I think I may have just found my new go-to fitness class. YAY!
For those who enjoy taking fitness classes at the gym, would you attend a class like this?
I admit that all the equipment needed was a bit intimidating at first, but it was nice to have a variety of weights to switch out when my muscles started to fail out.
