I’m all about trying new things, but I have a tendency to give up on them after a fairly short period of time.
Exhibit A.) High school sports. I didn’t just play one or two sports and stick with them throughout high school. Oh no.
Softball – 2 years, Basketball – 1 year, Tennis – 1 year, Track – 2 years, Cheerleading – 1 year. Two year limit and I’m out baby.
That dusty old thing is the guitar I tried to learn to play in college. Yeah, that happened.
Knitting. Or crocheting. Or something along those lines. See, I don’t even know what the heck those needles are for, I spent so little time using them.
Today I signed up for something I am determined to see to the end. I signed up for Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping.
What is FXB?
From their website:
“Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping® is a body changing, life-style transforming fitness program designed to help you quickly improve your fitness level. In ten weeks, our students make positive, permanent changes to their health, strength, appearance and confidence.
Farrell’s® 10-Week Challenge combines exercise through fitness kickboxing and strength training, nutrition, a coach, certified instructors, teammates and a $1000 contest to motivate you to transformation. The Farrell’s team will lead you to a healthy lifestyle, weight loss, increased lean muscle mass and complete body transformation.”
The workouts are at their gym – 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week, for 10 weeks. Then on top of that there is a nutrition plan that you are supposed to follow. So yeah, it’s going to be a challenge. I’ve been working out pretty consistently for a year or two now, but have yet to actually increase the intensity of my workouts. I think this is just the kick in the ass I need to step it into higher gear. I don’t need to lose any weight, but I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t like to lose some “vanity” pounds. And I can definitely improve my level of fitness. It’ll be interesting to see where I’m at 10 weeks from now.
I’ve added a tab called FXB to the menu bar and I’ll be keeping you all posted on my progress. I’m pretty excited! Orientation is this Saturday!
