So today I headed off nice and early to Revue Dance Studios in my local town of Swansea where the owner, Stacey, had offered me some free personal training sessions to help me along with my weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey, which is amazing and I really appreciated that.
The thought of spending an hour alone, in a space, with someone who I knew was going to work me hard kind of filled me with dread so I did what anyone else would do and tried to rope all my mates in, of course they found suitable excuses as to why they couldn’t attend, so I faced the fact it was just me…Alone…
So what is it? Well MYChoreographer is personal training but not as you know it, it’s a session with a dance choreographer which includes dance workouts, fitness exercises and also dance routines, even with a performing background dance isn’t my strongest point but as I learnt that didn’t matter, it was about the body moving and working out every muscle in a full body work-out.
So before the session Stacey asked me what I wanted to achieve, why I was doing it and what my goals were etc and after that we got into a dance studio to start.
What I liked about this workout is it didn’t feel like a workout, now I don’t mean I didn’t feel it working, because I REALLY did, but it was fun and broken down into manageable chunks instead of insane workouts that leave you needing to throw up. Everything you would expect from a personal training session was included, warm ups, stretches, reps of exercises but it was all done to some great music and Stacey was a great motivator keeping me going through the whole thing.
The experience was amazing, I really enjoyed it and it was nice to feel my body again (not in a rude way, dirty people) but to feel muscles stretch and move and generally to see myself being mobile and active. This type of workout is ideal for someone who doesn’t like the formality of a gym, the intensity and embarrassment than can sometimes come with attending a fitness class with others, those who want to be pushed and those who want to have a bit of fun, because without the fun element, for me anyway, I would be finished.
Prices are very reasonable and I would recommend people go and give it a try, alternatively if you want just a dance class they have LOADS of them, who knows with a bit more weight loss I might give them a go as well.
I’m really looking forward to my next session, so that in itself is a success!
