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.

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.

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!"
