My ultimate conclusion…I do not like group fitness! I’ve tried a few of the classes I mention above including Zumba , Cardio Fusion , Just Pump ( Part I , Part II , Part III ), and Yoga/Pilates Fusion . In the end I do not like group classes….something to do with the group mentality and attempting to keep up with all the random moves.
However, I do like spin/indoor cycling. I don’t know what it is – maybe the fact that it is not complicated and I don’t need to be coordinated? Yeah, I’m not coordinated.
As far as the gym goes…I prefer to use it for spinning, lifting and that’s about it. The only time I really get on the machines is if we have horrible weather or if I’m fighting off an injury!
Basically, I am figured out what my scheduled cross training will be…lifting with NROLFW and early morning spin classes. Of course I will be headed outside for some biking with Chris as soon as the weather clears up a bit!
I will eventually be all excited and post the *official* training plan for the Eau Claire Half…you know, that half marathon coming up in less than 5 weeks. I plan ahead people, I really do!
What do you do for cross training? How often do you cross train?
