Peacefully Pumping

After the initial misunderstanding as to the identity of Serena's replacement on Friday, Ben S, whom I thought was Ben Sim, Lionheart, Yhsmom and I decided to try out Sunshine's Darling, (hereafter referred to as SD....like a memory card). Crystal was once again assessing, wow, that's twice in a week that we see good old Crystal sitting in a pump class.

So, yeah, Sunshine was beaming with happiness to see us there, and SD, of course. She warned us he was very proper, ..... and yes, with eye on the clock, he said, "we have one more minute to go before 6.45pm, so we'll wait". I doubt FPI would have bothered, afterall, different clocks in Manulife show different times, so its quite arbitrary.

SD has a very soothing voice. He'd make a great Body Balance instructor. I had visions of me dozing off during the chest track and the bar falling on me and killing me. Very soothing. You'd think he was incapable of being flustered, and quite the kind of person you'd like to be around during a crisis. So unlike the other drama queens ....... also, being a one hour class, the pace is a lot slower I guess, with time to recover in between tracks, unlike FPI's FIT ALL 10 TRACKS INTO 45 MINUTES class. So Sunshine remarked I wasn't carrying enough weights since I wasn't sweating like a warthog in the sahara.

Lionheart must've gotten a call from Mrs Lionheart, for shortly into track 3, he packed up and left in a hurry. I am sure if the instructor knew WHO Lionheart is, he'd have been much relieved after the Lion left.

The moist weather gave me no choice but to use the treadmill in the gym on Sunday, depriving me of my usual kiara hill walk/run. There are surprisingly a large number of motivated people on a lazy Sunday afternoon, as nearly all the treadmill's were full.

Monday, the routine FPI class, or so I thought, until Ken, the young boy whom I haven't seen in ages, asked me, WHO IS WENISA AH? I asked, "why do you want to know?", and he told me that she was replacing Kento. ARGHHHHHHHH, her reputation as Torture Queen preceded her. So yeah, apparently she did a swap with FPI,.... I didn't hear the full explanation coz my heart was pounding with fear. Lionheart's look of glee made me worry even more.

Fantastic music selection. Most of the music would have been before FPI was even born, I reckon. None of the tracks, save one, were remotely familiar. It was the first time I had seen a shoulder track movement in the warm up. Very interesting. Ken's Friend, a first timer, was seen to lower his weights midway into the triceps track. Biceps was horrible. Okay la, the torture wasn't all that bad. Surprisingly, she finished 10 tracks too, and the Line Dance Funk instructor still hadn't shown up!

Great class, Torture Queen.

There was a mini crisis when right after the warmup track suddenly there was a power failure in MML!!!

Even the electrical system must have been lulled to sleep...

To which Lion was very quick to comment on his belief that there is someone watching over us from the heavens

yhsmom...hahahahaha! "Tin Yau Ngan" eh?

FBB....Torture Queen's selection of music is always very good. Her torture lies in the fact of her execution of moves....She expects the class to follow her way of executing the moves in squats, chest presses, clean and press shoulder arnold presses etc. As compared to your FPI's bulldozing!!!! Hahahahahahaha!! Pity you are not going for TQ's Thursday pump. From what I gather, another round of great music (not the same as the Monday ones)...all classics!!!
