TEAM WEIGHT LOSS

The first piece of my training program is to lose weight. Tonight I joined a program at my gym for TEAM WEIGHT LOSS. It's like being on a team on the Biggest Loser except our team trainer is Pat. Pat came to us from the University of Cincinnati-he was their fitness trainer.

There are 10 on our team. It covers 3 months. Tonight was a treadmill workout. It was intervals that were heart rate based. We have 3 workouts per week with the trainer. We added incline, hand weights and stretch bands at different times.
I will finish this and be lighter and hopefully more ready to begin hard training January 1.

So now I have a swim coach and a trainer.

Waddling into base training.....................

I think blogger AmyBee did Team Weight loss. She lost an amazing amount of weight and looks fabulous. I noticed her race times improved also.

That is an awesome idea of doing it as a team. Swim coach and a trainer, you are going to be kicking butt next season.

I'm excited for you and hope to see you next year. Nothing like a new routine to keep you motivated during the hard months of the year.
