Are You Kidding Me?!

Body Pump (BP), has undergone a change. I have a new instructor on Tues.
The "problem"?
She's interactive.
She expects audience participation in the form of feedback while you're working out. (i.e. "you feel that?" Our response: crickets chirping. Her response: "I thought there were people in here with me!" Our response: low mutters, groans.)
At first her determination for audience participation in the form of conversational feedback aggravated me, now, it humors me because she is so sarcastic.
But...
I AIN'T TALKING!!!

If you know me at all, (and you will by the end of this post) you know that I don't speak many if any words before about 7 or 7:30 in the morning and that's after about 2 cups of coffee. Minimum.
Body Pump is at 5:30 am. I'm barely awake at that point, forget speaking and being the least bit sociable. I'm a BP robot. Go in. Work out. Home. Coffee.

Who knows? Maybe with persistence she will get this class actually appearing excited about being in a gym at 5:30am huffing, puffing and straining to beat our bodies into a svelter version of ourselves.

I'll be excited on the inside.

I'm so with you on this one. You want an answer? Then don't ask until AFTER 9 am. I am too busy being in my head and thinking about the weird stuff I dreamed last night to be listening and responding to someone else.

So sue me.

LOL

I'm so glad you explained what BP is. I read some of your other posts recently and I was like, "what the heck is BP? I thought it was a gas station."

I hate over-talkers at the gym. Our yoga instructor wants everyone to answer her while you're in plank position thinking, "just let me get through this!"
