In addition to my December Challenge, I’ve started doing Les Mills Combat. It is so much fun! Let me tell you a story…
I started working out at a gym. I took a lot of classes, including some great kickboxing classes. They were mostly combination based, not a lot of drills, some used light bags and all were fun. When I left the gym to work out at home (like now, I had little time to workout and getting to/from the gym was time I could use elsewhere), I found Turbo Jam. It was also a lot of fun, but different. The classes had been more fight based and more technical – not that form wasn’t important in both, but the moves were more traditional. Turbo Jam was dancey and happy. I looked forward to my workouts and found something I loved.
Now years later, I am working out at home mostly again. I moved on to Turbo Fire, became a certified Turbo Kick instructor and still adore the workouts. But! I tried Combat. It’s terrific. So much like the workouts I used to do. They make me feel strong and like I can take on anything. I still haven’t made it through all of the workouts (just finished week 2 – I’m doing the Ultimate Warrior schedule) but it’s been fun. I’m so glad I tried it. You never know how much you’ll like something until you try! I didn’t even realize how much I missed my old workouts.
There is still plenty of room for my Turbo workouts. They are different, not better or worse. Sometimes, I have too many fun workouts to choose from! This is one of the reasons I like to use a schedule – without one I wouldn’t be able to choose between all of my favorites!
So…do you want to see a workout by workout review of Combat like I did for T25? Let me know!
