Edit to add to yesterday’s post: Penske actually read my post, emailed me, and after talking with their Social Media team at the corporate office, we were refunded the rest of the truck!! I was super impressed. While I was not pleased with our overall experience, their Social Media team saved the day! Thanks, Ryan Dixon, my favorite member of the Penske Social Media team!
I had never done BodyStep before, so I was a little nervous. I don’t do well with dance-y choreographed fitness classes, but I know the key to staying fit is continually trying things that are difficult.
And BodyStep is just that: difficult. An intense, fast-paced cardio workout that utilizes an adjustable bench/step, BodyStep uses bursts of high intensity intervals paired with muscle toning tracks give you an amazing overall body workout.
And when I say fast-paced, I’m not kidding. There were several different times when I literally stood on my step, confused as hell, while everyone else around me looked like they came out of a sweaty Glee episode.
While I was embarrassed about my severe lack of coordination, it was honestly one of the best workouts I’ve gotten in a long time. And looking at the stats Les Mills provides, I see why:
Seriously, I was dripping with sweat before we even finished the warm up, and this morning my legs are so sore.
Even though I was lost and confused, awkward and uncoordinated, and hands down the biggest dweeb in the class, I had a great a time. Emily and I have already decided we’re going back next week!
- Have you tried BodyStep before?
- Are you super excited about the Olympics Opening Ceremony tonight?! I am!! I have to DVR it, but I’m looking forward to watching it this weekend!
