Expect to feel GREAT in week 3!
Expect to be somewhat faster in your warm up run
Expect to feel more coordinated in your movements
Expect to notice your recovery time getting quicker
Expect to be managing some muscle soreness with hydration, stretching, foam rolling, rest and proper nutrition.

Every fitness program has people who pay the $ then just stop coming. Statistics tell us that this week (Week 2) is when you are most likely to drop out. Don’t do it!
If you did too much too soon or if you’re just not used to being sore, talk to your trainer. Be gracious with yourself. Get out of your own way and just get to class. See your commitment through to the end. You will be PROUD OF YOURSELF!
If you have missed a class or more, come on back to finish strong. We miss having you!
