Pamela Reif’s workouts are not for the faint of heart. As I have stuck to them (3 days in a row!) I have found myself feeling stronger and more agile in continuing them. I have also committed myself to keeping a Fitness Diary everyday to hold myself accountable for doing her routines. Her routines are along the lines of a Barry’s Bootcamp style class minus the voyeuristic aspect of millennials low key competing over whose body is hotter (those are the types of classes that I loathe; it just reminds me of Amy Schumer in I Feel Pretty and the scene when she falls off her bike in a Soul Cycle class). Pamela Reif’s TED speech on authenticity resonates with me, and it speaks to the fact that if you do commit yourself to achieving goals, you can achieve what you put your mind to. It certainly is mind over matter.
