February 4, 2014
The kickboxing and slam classes I attend have tripled in size since January , a common happening thanks to all who have a resolution the get fit for 2014. This creates a stir amongst the regular attendees who have gotten used to having their particular space on the mat. Location means a lot to those who work out; some prefer standing closer to the instructor while others, usually those who don't want to be called out about not putting out, stand in the back. The newbies disperse all over the place and usually land on someone's else's spot. We regulars joke that things will get back to normal by February, because a lot of people don't stick with it. However some of us don't handle this change that easily.
Theresa is a kickboxing fanatic. She always dresses in vibrant colors and works it and whips sweat around this studio with amazing passion. When a hot club song comes on she starts doing cartwheels. You would think being so seasoned that she'd roll throughout these crowded workouts easily. Yet, anytime anyone is in her spot (right side of the mat in the second row) she tries to crowd them out. When it doesn't work she will literally ask them to trade places. Her forcefulness can usually make anyone move.
My spot is in the middle of the mat a little to the right. I don't really mind if someone is in my a space, yet I have taken precautionary measures to avoid this by showing up extra early for class.
