Every minute challenges your willpower, so we’re breaking it down by the numbers, because, after all, that’s what counts.
60: minutes of participatory torture (your future ass is worth it).
12: minutes in and you’re overcome by the shakes.
5: seconds later, your instructor urges you to “go toward the shake.”
550: potential calories to burn.
38: leg lifts — thankfully, not one more.
1: wall of windows overlooking serene greenery, at which you will gaze to distract yourself.
7: instructors, with varying backgrounds, from personal training to ballet.
51: classes per week.
2: sessions before you stop in front of the mirror and marvel at your newly sculpted abs.
Make it count.
