Ha, ha, now you are all singing Olivia Newton John!! So, a couple of weeks ago I decided to get serious about my health and fitness. My cameras are getting heavier and heavier and after a full day of shooting a wedding, my knees are pretty ticked off with me. I noticed that one of my close friends kept tagging this GEvolution place in her status updates. I looked it up and imagine my surprise when I realized it was in downtown Augusta. Woo Hoo! This place was different though. Really different. Like there aren't rows and rows of elliptical machines and treadmills. No Nautilus or weight machines. What they do have is a unique approach to fitness that combines personalized routines using full body moves with an array of different utensils like medicine balls, kettle bells, ropes, kegs and the biggest tire I have ever seen. It looked just different enough and unique enough to be something I would stick with. Well, needless to say I had my very first workout with Gina today and I feel amazing. I pushed myself to the edge and then pushed a little more. Every time she uttered words of encouragement in my ear I worked a bit harder. Every fist bump made me run a little faster. I'm actually pumped to see what her plan is for Wednesday.
Stay tuned to see more about my journey with GEvolution and the women behind the revolution, Gina LoMonaco.
