Just the other summer, I was asked to be a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding celebration.
When I agreed, I honestly didn’t know what I was getting into.
My cousin was quite ridiculous with all of her demands. The entire bridal party was continually expected to join in on ridiculous and overpriced activities. The group of us all went skydiving together, took a wine tasting tour and went whitewater rafting. The group of us rented a limousine for a bar crawl and took ballroom dance lessons on top of that. My cousin took constant pictures and posted everything on her Facebook page. The only thing I really adored was our sessions with a personal trainer. My cousin was absolutely determined to get her wedding party in marvelous shape for the immense day, and everything was targeted at looking wonderful in the photos. The personal trainer met with each one of us individually. The group of us talked about nutrition, fitness goals and weight loss. Then he then set up a personal method and a one-on-one training schedule. The group of us also participated in all kinds of group fitness classes. Since my cousin is terribly uncoordinated, she was struggling pretty bad with this… I thought it was great and enjoyed every minute of it. The group of us worked with resistance bands, free weights, weighted balls and kettlebells. The group of us had access to a whole bunch of workout machines, including treadmills, ellipticals and rowing machines. The personal trainer included plenty of flexibility exercises, static holds and breathing exercises. By the actual day of the wedding, I lost about fifteen pounds and felt really great. While I couldn’t wait to be done with all of the duties of being a member of the bridal party, I made the decision to keep meeting with the personal trainer.
