Every Girls Thought Process In Their First Exercise Class

Hey peeps,

Thanks for all the support within the latest blog posts of mine, especially my recent on the most annoying gym questions! Loved your feedback. ALSO thanks for all the follows on my twitter and insta!

If you’re into exercise classes and enjoy this post – check out my Most Annoying People in a Fitness Class blog post!

On with the blog post, something a little different today but hopefully just as entertaining and relatable as all of my others. I’d like to see how similar my thought processes are in one of my first exercise classes in comparison to you lovely lot! These are all in jest and meant to be humorous…now I’ve said that they kinda have to be don’t they. Maybe you’ll read something familiar…let me know if you do!


  1. Is this the right studio?

  2. I’m guessing so…everyone’s in sports gear and loitering in random spaces

  25. now to fall down the stairs and call for help when I can’t get off the loo.


I hope everyone else’s thought processes were the same if not a bit similar at times to mine. Writing this post made me laugh. I did think not to post it as it wasn’t exactly the same as my usual posts – but if it makes me chuckle I’m hoping the majority of you find it funny too – even if it’s just a smirk or an inside laugh.

Any thought processes you found the same? Or any that I didn’t quite nail and cover? Let me know in the comments – it’s all out in the open now!

Love Life, Lexi!

  1. hahaha 😀
    19 – 41 of the work out section describes every squat track of every body pump class I have ever been to!!
    Coupled with “dammit why am I stupid enough to think I should do this with 20kg!!”

    also..I think this a lot: “what do you mean when you’re ready…you don’t mean that because if you were waiting until I was ready we would be doing this tomorrow!”


    • Hahaha – yes a lot of their catchphrases if you like get on my nerves too a little…some people prefer a softer approach while with me – I like to be shouted at and made to do it otherwise I never will!! x

      Thanks for reading and I’m glad you enjoyed it and found stuff to relate to! xx

      • The problem is finding interesting and inspiting/motivating things to say over and over again is tricky!

        I am totally different when in a class to when I am teaching a class…

        on my Insanity Instructor course I resorted to:
        “go lower in your press up for some reason!!” Apparently this is not as motivating as it could be!
