Today was a Saturday so this should be my rest day but since I had most of the week off so far I thought I would pluck up the courage and try something different rather than my usual gym workouts. Step out my the comfort zone of my cycle class and tried sh’bam. A dancing class for a girl that has no rhythm at all. I have never felt so happy and uncomfortable in one class. When I first started the class I went right to the back in the corner and felt so shy like why the hell did I join in with this class I can’t dance to save my life. But every time I go past it just looks so fun. By the third track I was loving it still just and a bit rigid but loving it. The problem that I have is that if I want to do something I want to do it right and be instantly good at it. I guess we can’t be good at everything or at least straight away. Only looking back now I realised I didn’t even look at anyone else in the class either except the instructor and one person right at the front that was amazing ( I think she teaches the class too but on a different day) so why was I even bothered about being shy when no one was looking at me anyway why would they.
The instructor was so right sh’bam is just about being free and happy and exercising all at the same time. I really need to learn especially from this week that I go to the gym because that’s what makes me happy. Of course, it has thousands of benefits as well and helps me to look the way I want to look but doing something that I can just jump around and have fun with was so refreshing and not serious it is something I need to keep doing. In fact, I should message the instructors to say thank you. Its taken me 8 years to do a class like sh’bam and now all my reason why (i.e I can’t dance, I will look stupid) just seems so silly and I’ve clearly missed out on some fun class.
