Fitness Challenge: Day 32
Gold's Gym has a very user-friendly website, where you can see at a glance the day's classes for a particular gym. The midtown Manhattan gym has a bare-bones locker room, more like a Y, with several floors of weight, machines, cardio equipment and exercise studios.
They have a trademarked Bodypump class, using barbells and a set playlist. Two instructors run the class, one demonstrating moves and the other controlling the playlist. But neither seems all that concerned with form. Maybe the class works better for those who already know what's going on; I seem to be the only newbie.
That being said, we go for the full, intense hour, with no pause to get a sip of water.
