Cardioblast is a blast-tastic workout!May 16th, 2012 at 1:32 pm by Ashley Kohl under Fitness
It isn’t called Cardio Blast for nothin’! Clayton rocked the house! We’ll get to Clayton in a bit…
I arrived 2 minutes late and jumped into the warmup — the music was pumpin’ (good tunes, Top 40 remixes, The Biebs “Somebody to Love” never gets old), the fans were going, the class had great energy — It was a blast.
What I didn’t realize is that you don’t stop moving for 50 minutes straight. Literally — you grapevine, kick, punch, march and lift those knees until you can’t see straight. I worked my biceps “Like a G6″ and kickboxed Aerosmith to shame. I’m tellin ya, it’s all about the tunes! I was so pumped up! Oh — and by the way — people continued to trickle in 5, 10, 15 minutes late. I didn’t feel SO bad for being 2 minutes behind schedule.
Now back to Clayton — he was all business. No mercy. Even when I wanted to quit, his motivation kept me going. I didn’t want to disappoint Clayton. I introduced myself at the end of class — turns out, he runs the ROTC program at Putnam High. Army Veteran.
No wonder I didn’t quit.
The end was my favorite part. Ab workout to “Push it” by Salt & Pepa and “Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer. Hammertime? No, no…It was Cardioblasttime. Game on.
