Pump it up!

Falling in love

It's strange: when I listened to the tracks of BodyPump 56 for the first time, I thought "ok, the next three months I'm doing something else, there are plenty of other classes...". I thought there was no way I was going to like that music - ever. "Who braindead grandpa picked up these songs??" Some old shit or what ever... but I gave it a chance.

And I got hooked. It's weird. I like all the songs, some of them I listen to at home as well. Actually, I sing along. And those songs really motivate me, "I like the way I move!", oh yes. I'm not even close to getting bored with BP 56.

I've been thinking how big part the exercice itself plays in the process of getting used to some song. When I hear "She Drives Me Crazy", it always reminds me of those bench presses that feel soooo sweet and cruel, and I can almost feel the pressure and the burning in the muscle. They give me a certain feeling, an attitude. My theory is, what ever the song, as long as you exercise to it, you'll learn to like it. The endorphin will make it happen. Magic!

Good vibes

It's been a while... I'm sorry, but thanks for reminding me. I'm not sure if anybody's reading my blog so that kind of affects my motivation on updating.

BP 56 was released this week in Finland. I have been listening to the songs for a long time, but now I can see the "big picture", doing the moves and going forward track by track. The first time I listened to the songs I didn't know what to think about it, all that old crap... wtf..? But I totally fell in love with this release! I have done it few time so there's not much I can say about it, I will write a complete review about it later.

I read from Tami's and Craig's blog that Mike's quitting. Well, I think maybe few people in Finland know who the "Pumpfrog" is anyway. And I wouldn't know either if I didn't surf around in web so much - I don't know if people are so fanatic as I am, BodyPump is my salt and pepper. But who knows what we are going to miss if Mike's really leaving the building, are the releases going to get better or worse or what?

I hope my favorite BodyCombat instructor has got her material by next week. This week I'm too damn busy to get to her wonderful classes anyway. Interesting to see what new the new BC release can give us.

I have finally fell in love with BodyBalance, so much that I did it four times last week... can't get enough! The new release is so good, the music is so unbelievably sweet and my favorite BB instructor loves to do her job - that makes us love BB too.
