I have had instructors of all ages, all sizes and have learned not to judge based upon those factors. However, this instructor we had last night was just completely unfit and I just don't find that acceptable. Not only that, but .... I love a variety of music, I really do. And I love some of the old (typical aerobics style) '80s music. But seriously ... an entire hour of it grated my nerves like you would not believe. Plus, not only were we gifted with an entire hour of '80s music, but also a lot of the moves were your classic '80s aerobics moves that are since a thing of the past (for very good reason).
Found this video on youtube. I think I know where she got most of her moves from ....
I found myself doing my own thing through most of the class and having to push myself extra hard just to get my heart rate up ... which wasn't easy since she stopped about every 5 minutes to take a breath and/or change music. Grrrr!!! I will NEVER attend this class EVER again!
The original plan was to take this step class followed by a 30 min Abs only class. However, the instructor for the Abs class called in sick. Since I really didn't get any kind of a workout from the first class, we decided to go for a little walk then attend the Bootcamp class later that night. Unfortunately when we got there the instructor was the same as the Abs class who had called in sick. They'd found a replacement instructor (who happened to just be at the gym working out herself), but she only teaches spin classes. She did however give it her best shot, and we shared a few ideas with her and made it a decent little class.
What a fail of a night! :( Guess at the end of the day though it was better than sitting on my tushy at home eating bonbons.
