I feel like I say this every time, but -- I tried something this week at Valley Athletics that I was always too afraid and intimidated to try -- INSANITY!
Yes, you read that correctly. Katie Phernetton tried INSANITY. And guess what.... I want to go again!
I've always seen commercials for it and always was intimidated by it. But this week I took a giant leap of faith and went to the class for it with my trainer, Dane.
At Valley Athletics, they offer INSANITY as a half hour class. So your initial thought probably is, "oh a half hour? Not bad." But just because it's a half hour, that just means you've got to push harder.
It was hard, but I felt so much better about myself after! Ryan, the instructor is awesome. Seriously. He's so motivating. Saying things when everyone starts to get tired that that's when change happens. And one thing that I thought was FANTASTIC that he said was one teenage guy in the class who comes regularly must of looked tired and Ryan just told him to keep it up because he's so much better than his first day.
If you've ever thought about trying INSANITY but you're like me and have always been too afraid too, seriously join Valley Athletics and come. There are people of all fitness levels in the class doing it right there with you. You really know you're not alone and everyone really pushes each other to do another rep.
It may have been hard during it, I may have been wanting to walk out the door and quit, but I didn't. I survived and am better today than I was yesterday because of it.
You really need to break down those walls, attack those fears and just do it. That feeling you get after is all worth it.
