Did you think your workout was a physical challenge? The physical side is the tip of the iceberg...
The truth is that completing a workout is actually a rollercoaster journey through every emotion availability to humanity...
Pre workout: "That couch looks GOOOOD. Imagine how lovely it would feel to sit on it with a nice cup of tea....NO, the couch is for people who have already worked out. Imagine how good it will feel to sit on it AFTER you've finished your workout." Determination
Minute 1: "I don't trust Daniel or Alex. They're all smiles...but they're hiding something." Suspicion
Minute 5: "What does she mean that was the warmup, i'm already out of breath...she must be joking. she wasn't joking...how am I going to get through this..." Disbelief
Minute 7: "He said burpees. He just said burpees. I'm going to die and I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye!" Fear
Minute 8: "Another set of burpees?!? Who do you think you are? I'll show you burpees you piece of...." Anger
Minute 9: "I did it. I rock. Nobody on planet earth is as awesome as me. Come at me bro...give me the best you've got...." Overconfidence
Minute 10: "Did SHE just say heeltaps. I was talking to him, not YOU. I didn't mean the best YOU'VE got Alex...I take it back..." Regret
Minute 13: (after heeltaps) "Is this what it feels like to be dead?" Enlightenment
Minute 15: "Half way. We're only halfway. It's not possible. I can't feel my legs...i'm going to cry...Mummy!" Despair
Minute 16: "Dig in now. You know you want this, you know why you're working out. Come on, don't give up now." Resilience
Minute 18: "Shut up Daniel. I don't want to hear another word come out of your mouth - unless it's about the cool down and stretch." Irritation
Minute 20: "Am I enjoying this...I think I am. Yes, I am. Yup, there is no doubt in my mind that I am actually having fun..." Enjoyment
Minute 22: "Nope. I was wrong. I am definitely not having fun. I am having anti-fun. I hate Daniel. I hate Alex. I even hate cute little kittens and puppies." Desolation
Minute 25: "Wrong again. The world is a wonderful place. Life is wonderful and so am I. ♫ ♪Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a wonderful day♫ ♪..." Joy
Minute 27: "The workout is done. It is done." Relief
Minute 28: "Did they just announce a Burpee/heeltap combination finale? *#¢#.....#¢*#£!!!" Incandescent rage
Minute 29: "I'm never going to finish this, it's not possible to finish this. This is ridiculous, nobody should willingly put themselves through such relentless pain..." Indignation
Minute 30: "I did it. I DID it! Wow! What a workout. What a session." Elation
Minute 32: "Did she just say my heart rate should be back to normal by now? Is 160 normal?" Confusion
Minute 35 end of workout: "I'm awesome. Daniel and Alex are lovely. Life is beautiful." Love
In the shower: "I can't wait until I get to do my next workout tomorrow, working out is the best thing in the world...." Anticipation
...Tomorrow: "My legs hurt...i'm sure Daniel said if my legs hurt I should take a total rest day..." Denial
