Friday Five: 5 Fitness Trends I Wont try

Five Fitness Trends I Won't Try


ONE // Hot Yoga


No way.  I have issues with yoga anyways - but stick me in a room that feels like Hell has made its way to earth?  & then you want me to put my body in weird positions?  Why?  So I can smell the sweat on me in places I shouldn't have my nose near?  No thank you.


TWO // Cross Fit

Looks like tons of fun

I know this is going to hit a nerve with a lot of people.  But nope. You'll never see me in a cross fit gym. Nothing against it - I just know I'll never be able to do it because of my bicep tendon.  I will never climb a rope - I will never lift weights repeatedly over my head in big bulks - I will never do 1,000 push ups.  My arm just wont let me do all this work... not to mention my knees?  You'll never see me attempting to jump on a big box.  Guaranteed.  I know my clutzy limits.


THREE // Paleo


All the meat!!! NOOOOOO!!! Not this vegetarian girl.  I just don't get it.  I get limiting carbs but the restrictions on this diet plan seem a little crazy to me.  I'm sure a lot of people who eat meat think the same thing about the way I eat... but to each his own... & my own ain't Paleo.

FOUR // Pole Class


First, can we just talk about how wrong this picture is above.  #1 - the heels.  Who wears heels to a work out session, unless you're the chic from Jurassic World who runs from T-Rex's for hours in them? ... & #2 - "Why hello stranger. Let me stand across from  you & stand in seductive poses & share this pole with you".... WHAT IS HAPPENING TO WORKOUTS?  ... & again, there's the whole upper body thing for me - ain't no way on the face of this earth I'm turning myself upside down on a tiny pole without breaking my arm... or bringing the roof down.


FIVE // Underwear Runs


I see more & more of these popping up.  & granted, if I had the bodies of some of these people, I would probably think twice about choosing this as a NO... but I have my body... & no one wants to see it running in just my underwear.  Oh mercy no.  Just imagine a slow motion camera & ripples through a lake... basically how I would look running in something like this.  Now, if I could wear long underwear from the hillbilly days, then I'm all in.

That guy... yep... my style

  1. I can't stop laughing... breathe... OK.

    I can't do some of that because of my stupid elbow. But some of it is just plain dumb. The pole thing? IF you decided grinding around a pole was for you, how could you share that with some stranger? Yikes.

    1. ohhhhhh.... can you even imagine. I guess you have a sense of boldness anyways if you're taking that kind of class. But no. Just no.

  2. This is hilarious! I love the Cross Fit photo, I have avoided trying it for the same reason!

  3. I have actually always wanted to try hot yoga because I am not a fan of regular yoga and I know that'd would make me sweat so I'd feel like I was getting a good workout in. Underwear run...no thanks!

  4. That was of course my sisters comment above^.
    I of course had no idea that hot yoga was performed in a stinkin hot room!

    I have no desire to do Cross fit anyway. So you can lift a million pounds over your head? So what..lol. But then again people could say the same of running. You ran 13.1 miles? So what. To each there own I guess..lol

  5. Yup... The pole dancing made my list too. I just don't get it with the half naked people in high heels... Just why...

  6. lol. pole dancing is not seductive when done as an actual workout. i did it years ago and it is a crazy hard workout. i guess it's hard to know when you haven't done a class and you only have strippers for reference ;)

  7. Pole dancing - sounds like an injury waiting to happen - one that I wouldn't want to explain to my family, friends, co-workers, or coach. Haha.

    1. I do good standing in heels, much less throwing my body IN HEELS around a small pole.

  9. I'm with you on all of these! I actually never even thought of the issues with a pole class until you mentioned it--ha ha!!!

  10. Hadn't heard of underwear runs. Definitely does not appeal to me. Pole dancing was on my list too. No way.

  11. Bwahahaha! I am dying with this post. lol especially the pole dancing part.

    So agree with you on all-- and although I tried Crossfit for a few weeks, I decided after trying it the second time it is NOT for me. And the underwear run... yikes!

  12. Oh NO NO NO to the undie runs. Just NOPE. Same with Crossfit. And that pole dancing picture CRACKED ME UP. Sooo much awkward!

    ReplyDelete
  13. How could I forget underwear runs? Oh hell no!

    I haven't tried crossfit, but I would at least try it.

    I have tried Paleo. I am not vegetarian, but I do eat vegetarian a lot. At its heart, Paleo isn't about all the meat. It's about whole foods. One of the things I regularly eat that isn't Paleo is legumes - like I said, I do eat vegetarian a lot, even though I'm not vegetarian.

    You're right, we've all got to find what works for us.
