After sleeping over it for a night, I finally decided the next morning to buy the Groupon for an outdoor boot camp.

I still remember the last boot camp session I went to not too long ago. That was an indoor trial class…and I literally died! I didn’t like it at all. There was a mix of beginners & advanced trainees…so imagine people like me who was struggling to do even one push up and the girl beside was already doing like 10! Well, it wasn’t exactly motivating to be training to with people much better than you, you know what I mean? On top of that, my whole body ached so badly after that for the next 4-5 days…even walking up the step at the lobby of my apartment was a painful effort. No kidding.

So why wanna go through the torture again, you asked?  Hmm…OK I must say that despite all the pain, it was a very good workout. It practically worked every part of the body. Also most importantly, I have a goal to achieve – to lose 3 kg by end of the year (some sorta bet I had with 2 other friends) AND to fit nicely into my bikini again for my diving trip at the end of this year too. 😀 Oh OK, so that’s 2 goals. 😉

So when I saw this Groupon offer, which was for the Rebel Boot Camp at only RM48 instead of RM299 for a month, I thought, why not? It’s a very good deal…and it’s outdoor…and it seemed like a superb way to reach that 2 goals of mine. So I started the first class last week.

So first class was last Tuesday evening at the Central Park (opposite 1 Utama)…it started to rain as we started to do the warm ups…and barely 20 mins into the session, there came the lightning. So the class was halted. Then we went for the 2nd class on Thursday evening. This time the heavens poured even more buckets down…but no lightning, so we continued the whole session until the end…in the rain…soaking wet. We were divided into 2 groups to partner each other…we did 2 mins of push ups, sit ups & grunts continuously, ran 10 rounds around the lake in the park (which they said was equivalent to 2km…but it sure felt longer than that)…and a mini competition where everyone had to keep at a plank position while the last person in line runs to the front continuously until one of the groups reached the end. Gosh, that was really painful!

By the end of the day, I was totally covered in dirt & dripping with mud…good thing I brought a t-shirt to change. My arms hurt for awhile, though they weren’t nearly as bad as the first boot camp I went to.

Then they had a replacement class last Saturday at 7am. I went for that one too. Although it didn’t rain that morning, it did rain the night before & therefore the field was equally wet & muddy. But it felt really good to workout in the morning while the air was fresh & nice. Oh and we got to play with ropes last Saturday too. 😀

In fact, I thought the trainers were pretty good & fun too, at least they were more motivating than dictating. And this is definitely more fun than working out in the gym…also in the gym you need lots of discipline to work every part of your body…unless you have a personal trainer. This, on the other hand, is a do-or-die. Once the session starts, there’s no excuse…nowhere to run. 😉

Anyway these guys are the Rebel Boot Camp, you can check out their website or Facebook page. 🙂

Oh btw, the photos weren’t taken by me, obviously…I’ve stolen them from their Facebook page. Haha.
