my jeans are starting to feel loose, and my body/muscles are generally feeling stronger - hell, my guns are basically bulging out of my shirts.
ok, maybe not bulging out of my shirt...
i'm not madonna.
so it's been a month since i've been going to physical training sessions two times a week at overload fitness in westlake (they have a beachwood location too, btw), and thus far i've been very happy with the results.
what was originally an unconventional workout for me (no sweating or cardio), has become completely conventional and now makes more sense then ever - mainly because the staff educates you so thoroughly on everything going on.
i've been cutting calories, although it's obviously hard with the holidays and what not, and on top of the strength training with overload fitness i've been doing additional cardio 2 to 3 times a week.
it's been an adjustment to say the least.
i went from never EVER exercising to waking up at the butt crack of dawn to drive out to westlake to work out.
and i love it.
the staff has been a major help and motivator for me, these guys are so passionate about their job and helping their clients that it's infectious. you simply want to do well for them.
but i don't want to make it out to be all sunny and rainbows cause these workouts are flipping hard, never would i have thought that 25 minutes of strength training would have such an impact on me that my muscles literally still feel all jello like hours later.
it's a good jello though, like cherry flavored with a dollop of cool whip on it.
i'm feeling stronger, more toned - and it's only been a month.
it's official, i drank the kool aid.
i highly recommend calling overload fitness for more information on their physical training process if this is something you are interested in learning more about - it's worth a call, promise.
