So I have begun my journey recently, started lifting weights and light cardio at my local gym across the street from my apartment. I told myself that I was going to go to my university's group fitness classes this week (I'm a staff member at a university), trying something new. The class I was supposed to go to, boot camp, started 16 minutes ago, and as you can tell from this post, I am not there. I don't know what it is. This happened on Monday too, where I literally pulled up to the group fitness place for a yoga class (something I'm already comfortable doing in a group environment at a different studio), and just sat in the car as I watched students go inside. My pulse was racing, my breath was shallow, my whole body felt stuck in dread. Then today happened. It's a mixture of social anxiety, of fear of failure, of not wanting to work out with students I might know (small university, power dynamics between professionals and students, etc., etc.), and I just couldn't make myself do it. Now I'm hating my brain for working against me, and I don't know what to do, and I don't want it to discourage me from continuing to do the weights/yoga I've been working with. How does anyone else battle their brain? I have a counseling appointment scheduled for Thursday, so we'll see what that digs up.
MILLER GOLD PARTNERS I am most fascinated with the idea that fitness clubs can become the corner pub or the youth center of the 21st Century, not just place to exercise but a community of people gathering together to unlock human potential and help each other achieve extraordinary mental, physical and emotional heights. When you look at new technologies such as exergaming, social fitness and fitness wearables it becomes clear that fitness is becoming an integrated part of people's lives. Jonathan
I moved to Detroit in the fall as a JV (Jesuit Volunteer) and would LOVE to meet up with any fellow rebels in the area. It would be great to get together to run or do some other form of training. Maybe do a healthy potluck? I'm open to any suggestions, but I do personally have some restrictions. I only make $100 a month and have commitments to my community. I'm sure they'd be happy to get involved from time to time as well, though!
