Just got back from a strength training class with a new instructor. It was like flashback to high school PE. There are just some people who can make me feel like an absolute slug - Lord, I wanted to hurt her. It's people like her who turn girls and women off of athletic/physical activity. It was like having a Marine leading the exercises. This is not the experience that I am after.
Yes, I do want to work hard and yes, bitch, I could probably outlast you. Don't let this flabby ass fool you. But I don't want to be called out in class. I've got a bad neck right now and I'm going to protect it. I'm not getting graded on this shit and I'm not getting paid for it, so just back the fuck off! Quit barking at me. This is supposed to be a collegial and encouraging class that promotes healthly improvements in life style and fitness. Your style leaves a lot to be desired as we are supposed to leave the class tired, but invigorated, not discouraged and feeling inferior. Fuck you.
