Colleen At The Ridge: First Workout

Today was my first real workout day at The Ridge.  I went skiing yesterday, and we skied hard.  Then, we had margaritas.  I stayed up too late, woke up this morning and not only did my legs hurt, but so did my head.  All I wanted to do was cancel my workout with Annie and go back to bed!  I knew I couldn’t cancel my first appointment, and now I am SO glad I didn’t!

Annie and I are a perfect match.  When I signed up, the membership desk got some information from me, so they knew which personal trainer would be best for me.  Annie combines cardio and weights in one workout.  I asked her to take it easy on me because of the skiing yesterday.  Apparently, she decided to ignore me.  We started the workout after a quick warm up on the treadmill.  I love that she knows just how far I can go.  Annie pushed me to do my best, but knew when to stop.  Even though it was tough, I felt like a new woman!  If I hadn’t had my training appointment, I probably wouldn’t have gone to the gym today.   Thank goodness I did, because it completely changed my day.  I felt so good about myself afterwards!

I am a self-starter, but when it comes to working out, I need accountability.  Annie asked me about my workout plans for this weekend.  I am going skiing again, but plan on hitting one or two of the many classes that are included in membership.  If you’re like me, and need a kick in the butt once in a while, you should get a personal trainer at The Ridge.  You will be amazed at how knowledgeable (and fun) they are.  The Ridge has great deals to get you started, and get you on a program.  If I had walked in there on my own today, I probably would have wandered around, walked on the treadmill for a while, and done some ab work, probably incorrectly.

I feel great today!  Plus, I love that I get extra calories for working so hard!  Something funny about working out, it also makes you eat healthier.  Even though that morning I was craving fast food, after my workout, I had a wonderfully filling, healthy lunch.  It’s not taking as long as I thought it would to get back to a healthy way of life, thanks to Annie and The Ridge!
