good Free Intro class at Windy City 00:30

Really great environment and I instantly felt welcome. We talked and then did a brief but challenging workout.

warm up
2 rounds of 10 squats, 10 pushups, 10 situps and 10 ring rows (much harder than bodyweight rows with a fixed bar)

workout (as many reps as you can)
1 min pushups (15)
1 min situps (30)
1 min ring rows (16)

Tabata - 20 secs on, 10 secs off - air squats - 4 mins
I can't remember my numbers each round but I got at least 10 squats in most of the rounds except for 1 or 2 I got in 9.

I appreciated that they recognized I could not squat all the way down and showed me how to get there. instead of before the other place just let me do whatever.

I am signing up for their on-ramp class which will help me learn all of the forms correctly. It starts Monday and goes 3x a week for 4 weeks. I'm excited.

    Thanks! I'm hoping I can learn a lot so I can do this on my own at the gym so I dont have to pay for two memberships. It's just north of Irving park on Ravenswood. You can't tell its there because it's in a warehouse building that has a bunch of different offices. But the place is huge. It's really cool.

    Ladies...I have a VERY strong feeling that by the end of the summer with our triathlon training and everything else we are going to be in the best shape we've ever been! That's a pretty exciting thought :D
