Dancers Shape: Pushing through

This is a sponsored post as part of the “Fit for Summer” Challenge, presented by Dancers Shape and Her Campus Texas.

It’s been two weeks since I’ve started going to Dancers Shape, and due to my car-lessness, I’ve got to say that one of the most important things I’ve learned so far is how to ride the city bus. I have the independence of a ten-year-old sometimes when it comes to
public transportation, and I’m sure I’m not alone! So here are some tips for my fellow ten-year-olds out there:

  • Plan your trip on capmetro.org and look up when the next bus comes if you miss your first one. I waited 40 minutes.
  • If it’s your first time on any route, sit where you can get a good view of the road ahead of you. Avoid panicking because you can’t tell where you are or which stop to get off on.
  • Some bus drivers are a bit cranky. They really like to be on time, and capmetro.org has their stops down to the minute. Make sure you are ready to go when the bus comes! Sometimes they are nice, too, so try not to generalize about the whole of humanity based on one impatient bus driver.

As for my actual experience in the studio, it’s been … going. The Asian performance-driven part of me was a bit frustrated at not being able to complete all the reps or stay in that perfect 45 degree angle crunch, especially when it seemed like at least half of the class could. But Jennifer assured me that getting through the reps is the last step, and that I had been doing a good job so far. Now that’s something you won’t get exercising on your own – a professional to help you get through feelings of workout inadequacy. Maybe this next week I’ll try a litter harder and push those limits!
