I love it because if I have had a frustrating day, I can take the rip stix and go boom, boom, boom really hard and get all my feels out. Sometimes I just need a safe place where I can hit things.
When I am have a good day, I can take the rip stix and go yeeeeeeeah!
My best workouts are when I don't feel like I am working out, so this is a good fit for me. I fantasize about becoming an instructor, but that is far off. I can't even get to class every day right now because of my son's nap "schedule" - I have to put that in quotes because he can't seem to get on one. Half the time, I plan to go to class, but he won't go down for a nap when I want him to. Then, he's fast asleep when I should be heading for the gym and I don't have the heart to disturb him.
But…someday. Man, I love to POUND!
