Need To Spice Things Up

Okay, some zealous protectors of the the GXIs have declared that "pimping" of instructors is an invasion of their PRIVACY. (just to quote that this word WAS indeed in CAPS) So I guess that genre of writing can be tossed out the window. So, what does that leave us with, in terms of creative writing about gym? But isn't it heartwarming to know that there are so many caring, protective people out there who are always on the look out for the welfare of their favourite instructors, protecting them from the slightest hint of scandal or negative exposure. Lucky Leon, some people have it all huh... talent, etc etc, and even their own guardian angels. (Right Leon? Heh heh!)

Anyway, moving on. Tuesday night, body combat as usual. Not sure why, or whether it was a response to my post last week about "having less breaks would be good", but FCI decided to have hardly any breaks, which WAS good. His James Bond cooldown IS one of the songs that I do associate with him, the other one being the crane and claw cooldown, which is what? Top Gun?

I associate Bohemian Rhapsody with Wai Hoong, Last Samurai with Kelvin Tan, Breathe Easy with Alvin Phey, Vedi Maria (Pump) with Lisa Jones, Angels (together with Do you really want to hurt me) with Alvin Looi. For cooldowns. Then of course there's a whole host of songs that remind me of instructors whenever I hear them. Shake Your Shimmy, Power of Love are always very dramatically executed by Alvin Phey, that song in the latest combat release with that sinister laughter reminds me of You KH, (coz he does it so well, that sinister laugh), Sexy is Wai Hoong, Alive is Teoh, ...... Never Ever Surrender somehow associated with Sop Fan, when I attended her Thursday lunchtime combat.

I digress. Anyway, I also realised that I am probably the oldest male participant in Body Combat on Tuesdays. So, even if I HAVE to do pushups on my knees, I should be allowed to. Mind you, I reckon for most conditioning tracks I can complete pushups on toes, except for We Will Rock You. As in normal pushups, not those funny ones where you're like a dog trying to sniff your ass by bringing your knees to your elbows and what not.

Yesterday, headed for pump at MJH, partially coz the online schedule said it was Mr Cool (Ben Sim) teaching. Turns out it wasn't, but still good, it was Herny, who is the usual instructor there. However, she had to turn it down a notch coz there was an invasion of new comers, almost 50% of the class, so it was quite a dizzying experience for her. Even for me, as a spectator, watching. Knees were going way over the toes, heels lifted, for squats, triceps all wrong, etc...but it was impossible for her to single handedly keep track, and under the circumstances, she did very well. Apparently there's a RM25 promo for a one month trial in FF. It's obviously working.

How come WE dont get any such benefits???

Anyway, stayed on for combat, with the Sistine Chapel. (since he's no longer wearing the ring of power, I think I'll change his name to the sistine chapel, coz he's covered with art..., ie, tattoos) A lot of the RM25-ers were there as well, but there was enough oldies to create a critical mass for some semblance of order.
