She Flies Through the Air With the Greatest of Ease...

Jukari Fit to Fly has me ready to run away and join the circus (or at least re-watch It Happened One Night).

Overall, tonight's class was more cardio heavy than last week's. We started out where last week's Tuesday night class left off - twisting all the way to one side, lifting our knees and spinning on the Fly Sets. There was lots of running and jumping. We also worked in a decent number of pull-ups, bicep curls and tricep push ups, all using the Fly Set.

In just over 40 minutes, I burned 177 calories, and my heart rate ranged from 119 to 175. 175 is up there for me. If I'm sore tomorrow, I expect that it will be in my forearms. Apparently, once you build those up a bit, you can work your traps more.

This class is a great workout, but it's also a great release. Jukari is Sicilian for "play" and the name fits. Spinning, jumping and swinging are fun. You really can't take yourself too seriously. I can't wait to see what more Sara has in store for us.

I'll keep you posted.

PS - Curious fellas out there should not be shy; tonight's class had a lot of men.
