That I could monitor my progress through the class; that I was able to switch up the exercises after so much time; being in a class environment; and getting a summary of how I did after the class was over.
The coach-led workouts are intense, but doable, and they inspire me to stretch beyond what I would normally do on my own. Getting it done alongside so many other dedicated fitness enthusiasts makes it fun — and the hour flies by.
I love how intense it is, how I always feel it the next day, and how trainers offer feedback even in a busy class. Also love how kind and helpful most of the classmates are no matter the day. I’m a solidly klutzy, fat, and short person who looks way different from 95% of the people there and I was seriously expecting to get a lot of stares and dirty looks. Not the case!
