I had no idea what I was walking into when I stepped into the community room of a local church to participate in my first group class since I started my fitness journey. I was there to try a new type of workout that my friend Giana Aragon had been trying to get me to join for over a year.
I was never big on group workouts because I felt self-conscious about working out in front of other people. But writing down my own journey has pushed me to branch out and try things that make me uncomfortable. So there I was in my Nikes, t-shirt and spandex shorts (it’s a volleyball player fashion thing I just can’t give up) ready to get started.
The workout was from Beachbody the company that advertises their workouts like INSANITY and 21 Day Fix. Giana and I had agreed to do an interview about her own health journey and becoming a Beachbody Coach after I got to see for myself what it was like to participate in a class.
I went into the interview with the intention of only featuring Giana for my Mighty Mermaids series but after participating there was so much more to write about. After attending one class I met some amazing women with some very motivating stories to share.
