The 12-week KO Gym challenge

Perhaps it was just because I have missed a few sessions recently, but this morning's session was really hard going. At one point I checked the clock, expecting it to be about 6.55am and time for the cool down, and was horrified to see that it wasn't even 6.30am yet. So dumbfounded was I by this that I asked fellow Survivor Tori to check her watch in the vain hope that the KO Gym clock had stopped working. Needless to say, it hadn't. We weren't even half way through.

I was still aching from Tuesday evening's session when I rocked up at the gym this morning. Coach Zach lead us through cross training, involving lots of press-ups, burpees, jogging on tyres, bag work doing our own combinations, jumping up on the ropes and resistance training against each other's strength.

The 12-week KO Gym challenge

I did the Sunday morning session this week, but again struggled with Tuesday morning's wake-up call. So, I made up for it by turning up for the 6.30pm-8pm session last night instead.
