I figure I can do most anything for 130 seconds, so even my least favorite parts (the crunches) pass quickly!
I love that the entire program is scripted out for me. I don't have to worry with how heavy things are suppose to be or how may reps I should be doing. I have a personal workout log that tells me EXACTLY what to do each week. After each workout I write down my successful number of reps, do a little math, and it tells me what to do for my next workout.
Based on my current weight and body fat analysis during my orientation. The trainer has set a goal weight for me of 175lbs (which is 25 more than what I had orginally had in mind). The idea is that I need to lose 100 lbs of fat, but gain 25 lbs of muscle. That seems quite reasonable. I like the idea that I will be gaining muscle instead of losing it, like so many do as they are dieting to lose weight. I understand that in the long run increased muscle will help my body burn more calories at rest, improving my metabolism. I'm excited to have a program designed to help me reach this goal.
After only 3 workouts, I haven't noticed much change in my body. However, I have had increasing success with the number of reps I am able to complete at each station, which seems like an improvement. I have experience a little muscle soreness, but nothing extreme. I hope to do the workout 3-4 times per week in addition to 2-3 times of cardio or walking.
I'm excited to see how things change over the coming months with this new workout!
