Relativity, AbsoluteFIT Style

 Time flies in the AbsoluteFIT studio. Or doesn’t, depending on what you’re doing at the time …


Do you know how long 50 seconds is? Well, it’s ten seconds less than a minute.

But also, if you’re doing an elbow plank on a stability ball with your toes on a box, it’s about three hours.

On the other hand, if you’re doing squats while holding a kettle bell, it’s not all that long — like 15, 20 seconds maybe.

What I’m saying is: Time, within the AbsoluteFIT studio, is relative. And it’s different for everyone — one gal’s stability planks are another’s kettle bell squats; we all have our thing. But the beauty of it is, no matter how difficult you find a certain move, you’re not going to have to do it for very long — you don’t get bored, and you find that you can put up with anything for 30-60 seconds. It’s something I realized early in my AbsoluteFIT journey, and recently became reacquainted with … from the top of a stability ball, with my toes on one of those big, carpeted step boxes. As 50 seconds ticked away for like three. frickin. hours. Heh.

See you in the studio!
