I was leaving Spiece Fitness around 0930 today and two men I joke with were talking at an exercise machine. We were kidding about them standing next to a machine and just talking and not using it. They asked me what I had done today so I elaborated. The exercise day started at 0445 when I arrived at Basches Martial Arts for Saturday Jiu-Jitsu. Trent, Ron, Rob, Adam, Sensei and I grappled from 0515 until 0630. We take turns with different partners for 7 minute rounds. Jiu-Jitsu is a complete body workout and I’m perspiring from head to toe at the end.
Then it was on to Spiece Fitness for the continuation of my workout. I get there usually at 0645 and Ashley welcomes me as I enter. I talk to Mike who is sitting near the front desk about the Komet Hockey game last night. After changing, I walked over to the FitZone room and set up my Spin Bike for class. Kasi instructed us for the 45-minute class and I got another drenching from sweat.
Fifteen minutes later, my bike is put away and Kasi is instructing Group Blast Class. It uses a long plastic “Step” wide enough to stand on and step across. To raise it, risers are added under on each end. I just add one riser on each end, but some people add 2. Maybe some day I’ll try class with 2 risers on each end. Blast is about 45-50 minutes and it gets my cardio going and my lower body is “blasted” at the end.
And that’s what I did today!
