I've always adore a particuliar fitness instructor eversince I heard her on radio.
Warna 94.2FM has a special segment every Friday,4pm just for her to give on healthy tips just for women.
She's known as Abidah Mahmud aka Deedee.
She used to be obese at 80kg and now she's only 47kg.
Not only that there was this old woman who use a walking stick to walk but now can walk / exercise without it.
People all the way from Johore comes to the lesson as well.
I've always said I wanna go for a jog but never did because lack of motivation.
Back in school,I had this friend who was really into sports and she got me motivated into sports.
I thank her for that but we grew apart for some reasons so now there isn't anyone I know of who
I can go jog/gym or anything that reguires me to sweat.
But that didn't stop me.
I decided to go for Deedee's class accompanied by my aunt who's alright with sports.
She hates the thought of jogging so I convinced her for these lessons.
It was at a studio, 2nd floor of Tampinese Swimming Complex. Nasib baik dekat, kalau jauh lebih baik tidur balik.Heh.
And $7.50 per lesson. How neat is that.
The first time I stepped into the studio, I realized I was the only one wearing shorts while the rest in slacks or long pants.Banyak makcik tudung,hmm. Dan semuanye smangat-smangat badan ye.
So I didn't feel I was the only chubby one there.
And there I saw Deedee, who is really slim and young for her age. She's probably late 40s or early 50s.
IDK, she was wearing alot of makeup and her long,highlighted hair with yellow hairband on her head.
Makcik ni seksi tau,jangan main-main. Hur hur.
Anyways,the first lesson was Stretch Band / Step - Robic. WHICH left me breathless but still got me going because of the upbeat music.
You know how much I love upbeat/electro music. Especially Jai Ho from Pussycat dolls. People singing out loud, hands in the air and jumping. You can never get tired with that kinda vibe around.
The thing about Deedee, she actually goes around making sure we're doing the steps correctly and will do it beside you until you get it right.
Which she did to me. Standing beside me, showing me the right way and getting me in the mood.
My aunt decided that we should try on pilates as well after that.
It was relaxing,slow exercise but you can actually feel the burns in your body. No pain no gain right?
Reminds me doing those pilates back in secondary school. Wahh best.
At the end of the lesson, my aunt decided to approach Deedee thanking her for the lessons while I was sitting at a bench, resting.
Actual reason? Malu lah,hehe.
Yes, I'm shy like that.
But then she and Deedee came to me. "Inilah anak sedare saye. Dier yang recommend saya datang sini skali."
"Oh?Bagus eh,I'm very proud of you,Nadiah. How old are you,still schooling?"Deedee asked.
"Tak kak, saye dah kerje." I wasn't sure to call her Kak or Makcik since she look young and hip for a makcik.
"Really?But you look so young,"she laughed. Alahai angkat aku tinggi-tinggi pula haha!
And before we went off, she hugged me, telling me that she'll look out for me again on the next lesson.
Aah cute,cute. I'll definitely come next weekend since my aunt is only free on those days.
Never know, I might just go on week nights in the future.
and that is if I get to find someone who can accompany me as well.
