“Take a breath and remember who the fuck you are.”
The other day I saw this quote on Instagram and I laughed, agreed, and moved on with my busy day, the Thursday of a short week with a long list of to-dos. Soon after, Alyse posted to Facebook an invite to a Gixo workout in the afternoon. With a full plate, I knew a 25-minute sweat-session with friends would be just the thing to break up the day of being at my computer, so I wrote the words, “I’m in”. (Side Note: this is one of the things I like most about social media – you write something, press publish, and it’s in the world, which is enough to keep me accountable every time.)
Later that day, I headed out the door with just a few minutes to spare before the workout. I booked it to the park a few blocks from my apartment building and got a head start on the speed workout. Did I mention this class was a speed workout? Also known as sprints. 9 one-minute sprints to be exact. I think you get the point.
At some point between my heart racing and sending emojis back and forth between the Sarah, the Gixo coach, Alyse, and some new friends in the class, I was reminded why I want to be here, in this class and in everything I do – to sweat, connect with like-minded people, inspire myself and others, and as always, to have fun.
So for me, yes, take a deep breath. But also, get a good sweat, try new things, let go of anything holding you back, and remember who you are, why you are here, and what you love to do.
Whether you’re a sweat fanatic or a newbie, trust me when I say that the Gixo app is the first digital workout that not only keeps you accountable to show up, or is so fun because you can make new sweaty friends, but it takes you to your edge and helps you discover that you really are limitless.
