It May Not Be Pretty, But It’s Hot!

All glamour, all the time, up in the AbsoluteFIT studio!

I don’t look all that good when I work out — my face gets red, I sweat, my hair looks a mess. There are some women who do the exact same AbsoluteFIT workout that I do, but still look like a fitness magazine photoshoot (hey, B.!) — I admire it, honestly and sincerely, but I’m here to tell you: Most of us look exactly like you’d expect when we’ve spent 45 minutes jumping, lifting, rowing, kettlebell swinging, etc.

Don’t ever let fear of the aesthetic keep you out of the AbsoluteFIT studio, is what I’m saying. We all look better after a shower and with our hair done, but in the meantime, some of us can do this with a 20-pound dumbbell:

And honestly, that’s kind of the point. Come on in and get sweaty! You’ll be glad you did.
