In my posts you have noticed a theme of me referring to the way I taught when I was in the inner city with my scholars. Taking Risks was something that all teachers in our building pushed on our scholars. Without taking a risk you are just taking the safe way and not challenging yourself to find your true potential. Here is the thing.... I am GREAT at giving people advise on what I believe to be best practices for ensuring success but when it comes to my own life I rarely take my own advice.
When I began with a trainer that was totally a risk for me however I was always an athletic kid so going to workout was not really anything new. So it is safe to say I always chose what I felt to be easy for me when it came to fitness. Im great at saying in my comfort zone so I know what to expect.
Last Saturday Octovber 21, 2017 I decided to take a step out of my comfort zone and go to a Poundfit Training. Google it people! Pound fit is hard to explain but its essentially a jam carido session. I looked online and youtubed this new trend and honeslty going into the training I thought "this lookes dumb, I dobut its for me, This looks easy, but im sure other people in Ynakton will like it so I should offer it."
what a humbling experience. Poundfit was an amazing experience. Not only did it challenge me mentally because I thought it was going to be "easy" it challenged me physically as well.
I am so glad I took the risk of trying something fitness related which was outside of my comfort zone! I have always been good at most everything I do and I believe that is because i stay in the "safe" zone. Now that i have challenged myself to try something new that challenges me you better believe that I will be practicing every damn day until I get great at pound fit!
I cannot wait to share this amazing cardio Jam workout with all of the people whom I come in contact with starting in December!
