But take it slow….
Last week I went to try a new workout class at ModelFIT (before you lose it on me, their slogan is “It’s not model thin, it’s modelFIT”), and there were all shapes and sizes in class. No Karlie Kloss to ruin my first work out in months. I really didn’t know what to expect — would I have cell phones thrown at me Naomi style to get me to go faster? Maybe it would be non-stop cardio, my absolute least favorite…
Turns out it was much simpler than that, and slower. Like dial-up internet slow. But by the end of class, I felt all the small moves we did… from the tiny leg lifts to shortened jumping jacks, and so did my butt, thighs and even my arms! We used resistance bands and
3lbs 2lbs weights along the way and finished with some stretching, which I love and always am disappointed when it isn’t involved.
All in all, I would recommend their classes for anyone looking to get lean and toned, the space has beautiful light, the locker rooms are clean with great beauty products and the music is curated by DJ friends of the studio.
Now I have a plan on how to balance all the holiday sweets coming up…. thinking small, real small.
