LA Workout: Body by JD
Over the past couple of years, I’ve had a few different model and actress friends drive from LA to Alhambra a couple of days at week to work out at body by JD. I always just chalked their dedication up to lunacy, but when another friend swore he helped her lose baby weight while eating what she wanted, I had to try it for myself!
Monday I went in to check it out. After fifteen minutes of sitting in my car paralyzed by fear, I mustered up the courage to go inside. During the workout, I came close to passing out twice. I got through by pretending to be a contestant on The Biggest Loser (whatever works, right?). After lunges, squats, kicks, bicycle crunches, jump rope, and throwing a medicine ball (which I’ve always managed to avoid for obvious reasons), I felt exhausted but shockingly great.
Fast forward: 6 AM Tuesday- I can’t sleep anymore because every time I move, the pain jolts me awake. Luckily, I was partaking in a road trip the entire day, so moving wasn’t really on the agenda. Wednesday- the pain is still here. It hurts to sit down. Yes, the chair is too hard for my tender legs. No wonder this workout gets such great results!
The Verdict: I can’t wait to go back! This program gets results. He doesn’t baby you, but who really cares when you’ve got that killer endorphin rush? My abs look great, and I can only imagine what regular workouts with JD would do for my butt.
