I Work OUT!

Happy Friday, everyone!

In yesterday’s post I mentioned I would give you all more information on the fitness studio I go to at a later date. Well, it’s a later date - so here it goes!

I’ve been living in the Bryan/College Station area for almost 4 years now. No, I am not an Aggie, but I am proud to be married to one and I love all that is Texas A&M University and Johnny Football!  It’s true what they say about A&M, ‘If you’re an outsider looking in, you don’t understand’ and I definitely didn’t get it until I moved here. Some may argue I’m just as crazy as the rest of them, but I just appreciate the tradition and some of my closest friends are the “Aggie friends” that I’ve made while living here and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Ok, sorry – enough of the maroon kool-aid talking.

So in the four years I’ve been living here, I’ve tried a handful of zumba classes/other fitness classes at different gyms that were so-so, but never had me coming back for a second class until last Spring. A couple of the ladies at my job told me about a zumba class that they had been going to during lunch at a new fitness studio across the street from where we work and told me I should join them – so I did and I loved it! I had a good run at this place until the Summer hit and then I lost all motivation to do any kind of exercise, BUT I always had this studio in the back of my mind because of how great it was!

This last Fall I took a few more classes at this place, but the motivation still wasn't quite there (because of me, nothing to do with the studio). By the New Year I was in full swing at this place. I started working out 3x a week and now I’m up to 5-6, sometimes 7x a week (with their online classes) and now I’m a regular with my own spot at Zumba and everything!

What is this place, you ask? PIRANHA FITNESS STUDIO!!!  

All of the instructors and members at Piranha have been an inspiration to me. Piranha offers several different fitness packages that include classes like Zumba, Zumba Toning and even Piloxing (really hard, but really good workout - Google it!). They also offer Power Training. Right now I’m still working on mastering the Zumba and Piloxing classes and then maybe I’ll upgrade to Power Training later.

Every instructor has their own style and flair and I love that. This place has been my therapy session almost every day since the beginning of the year and I couldn't be more grateful. Everyone is there to let loose and get fit and all the instructors are so welcoming. I actually look forward to working out now and may even start doubling up on classes a few days a week!

And if you don’t live in the area they offer online classes as well! These are great for me when I need a late night work out or if it’s raining and I don’t really want to leave the house.

Check it out – you’ll be glad you did!

Have a good weekend,

Mrs. J. Bitty
