The Gym

I had an intense workout at The Gym today. My trainer took no time to get started, involving me in activities that used muscles I didn’t know I had. Most of the workout involved a huge 40 lb. weight. You heard me: 40 pounds.

My workout was quite the eclectic cross-training mix. First, I had to both push and carry the 40 lb weight 1/2 mile. Next, I had to hold it above my head for 3 sets of 20 seconds. I lifted it up and down and up and down and up and down countless times…till finally I told my trainer I had to take a breather. He was soon pulling me up and before I knew it, I was back at it, this time walking across a balance beam with my 40 lb weight. I had to carry it up stairs, slippery slopes, and rope ladders. We ended our session with a 2 mile walk, in which my trainer insisted that he ride in a cart that I pushed…

What Gym do I work out at, you ask? It’s called the Jungle. The Jungle Gym. My trainer? A 40 lb kid. Who said that being a nanny was an easy job? 🙂

  • hahahah!!!

    My firstthought was “how do you have a gym??” =)

    my second thought was, I know you haven’t been attending long enough to be using a FORTY pound weight…what kind of stupid trainer is this?!?!?

    and my last thought was…well, actually, it was outloud laughter! =)

  • I don’t think anyone would say that being a nanny is an easy job. If they do they haven’t ever taken care of someone else’s kid.
