What’s on my mind right now.

I didn’t feel like writing today but I feel like I’ve missed enough writing days already and everyday I write the better I get at it and the easier the flow of ideas. I must write. But I don’t have a particular topic to write about today but what I do know is this… I want to declutter! And what better way than to write what’s on my mind.

I guess I’ll start with emotional declutter. I want to make more space, I sometimes feel like we’re all just bloated emotionally and being bloated is just bad.It’s like you’re fat but you’re not. Space being taken for no good reason. Actually the reason is that we put in unwanted food into us or unnecessary food and our bodies way of acting out is by taking a stand and telling you “Hey!…stop it mister”. That’s how I feel my mind can get and that gets to you physically as well. I don’t usually post stuff like this, cause this isn’t how I think but today maybe the start of a beautiful journey. One with less stuff to carry around. Thinking about it is relaxing.

I guess this makes my post for the night. I usually write double the amount, but this is less nonsense for you to read then. Hope this helps in any way and incase the message didn’t across, what I’m trying to say is “Declutter”.

Why I hate Les Mills

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Les mills. Here’s a wikipedia definition:
Les Mills International is a New Zealand company that is the world’s largest provider of choreographed exercise-to-music group fitness classes distributed to health clubs. The first Les Mills program was BodyStep, with BodyPump being the first program released internationally. There are currently 14 programs,10 which are classified as “group fitness”, three which are High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) programs and one that is classified “youth fitness.”

Now, why do I hate them? After attending many of their classes and being inspired to become an instructor myself, I realized that they’re just too much. Let me explain, they are dedicated  to excellence, while no one is excellent why even try, let alone try hard? Their workshops are filled with knowledge that helps you understand why you’re actually doing the workout and why you’re doing that particular set! Pfft, people just want to work out! Wrong or right!!

To be an instructor you have to go through a grueling 2 days of intensive workouts, information and you should even pay attention to the details. Could they make instructor’s lives any harder?

They worry about safety and always give options so that anyone and everyone can be a part of the experience. Mmmm not everyone wants to work out, God. Even my grandmother could join a class and have options. Embarrassing.

As instructors we have to cue direct and clear instructions so that everyone can understand AND it has to be kept simple. Why can’t we just take the microphone and sing along the whole song while we perform our workout, they can follow you know!?

And here’s their motto: “We’re on a mission to create a fitter planet. This doesn’t mean making people work out. It means helping people fall in love with fitness so that they want to work out.” I mean the planet is doomed, so let’s not try to save it. Sure it has inspired millions and they have changed lives, including mine to the better. Still….the planet is doomed.

So if you want to be a part of class that are on a mission to create a fitter planet, to inspire you to become a better and stronger you. To push you to limits that you had no idea you were capable, then by all means you can check out clubs such as Reps, fitness first and Dessange that are in Bahrain. But I know that we as human beings need nothing like this. We are doomed, so let’s just sit back and contribute to the destruction.
