This Program has really pushed my limits, the first week was tough and the funny thing is since I’ve started Beachbody programs, I always feel like I’m doing really good. In fact I get a little cocky about it thinking its easy and I’ll sail through the new program. Well I’m hear to tell you , I am always wrong lol.
Just when I feel like I’m stronger or getting past the hard part, I start a workout and boy oh boy does it remind me I have a long way to go. So this week the Shift Shop program increased the workout time to 35 min. Doesn’t sound like a whole lot of extra time right ?
Ha ha wrong , 10 min is a lot of extra time when your legs are burning and your sweating so bad you can barely see. Did I mention how much fun it is?! Well this is what I like to call my playground. Just me and the trainer , oh and the usual fur baby that likes to join me !! You can’t see in the picture but there was not one spec of my body that wasn’t dripping with sweat.
One of the things I have noticed with SHIFT SHOP is that the trainer CHRIS DOWNING , is very supportive and encouraging while he’s making you do things that I normally wouldn’t want to do. He had a saying in one of the exercises and it was this ” Don’t let the MOVE finish you , YOU finish the MOVE!” He also really stresses at how he doesn’t want you to rush through the workout. He says to slow down and make sure do the form properly even if you have to modify , there’s no judging!! Isn’t that such a great way to encourage people. Especially if they’re just starting out!! We always feel clumsy ( or at least I did) little bit of a failure because you can’t do the proper push up etc. HE doesn’t care as along as you do the best you can. I think that’s one of the reasons why I love this program so much. SO today after I wake up from my night shift I will push play and LOVE IT !!
