Does this woman look like she inflicts pain and suffering on others?
She’s Jenny Schatzle, and she’s a personal trainer in Santa Barbara – not just any personal trainer but one who leads fitness bootcamps that are all the rage here.
And now she’s my personal trainer too. Yup, I decided it was time to do more than take my occasional walks. I want definition in my arms, let alone actual muscles. I want legs that don’t wobble when I try to balance on them. Most of all, I want a flat stomach and a butt that doesn’t sag and a healthier lifestyle, and Jenny says she’ll make those dreams come true.
We had our first training session yesterday, and I’m so sore I can hardly type this post. She had me doing sit-ups and push-ups and squats and lunges – over and over and without stopping – and at one point I yelled, “You’re a total dominatrix!”
She laughed and said, “Okay, now do another thirty more of those.”
The plan is for me to work out with her once a week and to do her exercises on my own on the other days. We’ll see how long this lasts. My heart is there. I just hope my body can handle it.
