I’m changing the way I move by taking a new class at my gym called Tacfit. It’s similar to Crossfit which is a little better known. Lots of kettle bells, box jumps, pull ups, squats etc. etc. It’s intense metabolic circuit training for 20 minutes with a 5 minute stretch and 5 minute cool down stretch inspired by yoga movements. The average class is two twenty-something muscular (or as I say, hunky) guys, the trainer, and me. The first time I went, the trainer and my classmates doubted that I could finish, they told me, ‘not to be ashamed’ if I didn’t finish. I of course had to finish after that! Now I’m totally hooked.
You get a minute to do this, and you start again every minute, on the minute, for 20 minutes. So twenty circuits of the above workout. As fast as you go determines your rest. If you go over the minute, you finish your set then rest until the next minute is over. I had to skip four sets. Hunky dudes 1 & 2 had to skip one each. My legs were shaking, and my knees kept hyper extending because my legs were so jiggly. Trainer Aaron, Hunky dudes 1 & 2 both told me that I did a good job. I know that doesn’t look hard, but doing it for 20 minutes with almost no rest makes it really really difficult!

Hope everyone else is enjoying changing the way they move! Thanks Nicole, great idea!
