Abs, Core, and Back: a Fresher’s Experience

It’s now 2017. It’s the time to get a gym membership and start working on that summer “bod”. I already had my membership leading up to the New Year; however, one thing I was yet to try was a class. I have always been someone who goes to the gym, does their thing and leaves; but not this time.

Upon our arrival, Hannah (my new gym buddy) and I realised she was yet to do her gym induction. Therefore, a class was our only option. Having never done one before, I was extremely apprehensive about the prospect of working out in a room with 30 other people, especially in a class that involves abs: my weak spot! Yet I was pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would definitely do it again.

As someone who has not got a strong core, none of the exercises truly defeated me. I was able to take breather when I needed one and didn’t feel intimidated in the slightest, despite 99% of the people around me being experienced. All of the exercises seemed fun, until the morning at least when I physically couldn’t move, much to my discomfort. I’ve even started including some of them in my own gym routine, which has surprised me as I’m someone who will do anything and everything to get out of doing sit-ups!

Above all, I would definitely recommend “Abs Core Back”, which is on Fridays at 6pm-6.30pm. Whether you’re looking to improve your core strength or you just fancy doing something different and taking a class, it is a great way to learn new exercises and improve your own technique. This is providing you turn up on time of course and actually plan to attend the session so you can mentally prepare yourself beforehand.
