13 BodyCombat klasser på 13 dage

I et forsøg på at slippe af med lidt af ferie-fedtet, blandt andet med hjælp af favorit fitness klassen, er vi et par stykker af Birkerød Ninjaerne, der har sat os for at tage 13 BodyCombat klasser over 13 dage fra torsdag 29/7/15 til og med mandag 10/8/15.

For at gøre det lidt sjovere, vil vi undervejs præsentere statistik mht. kalorieforbrug og evt. vægtændringer samt komme med kritik af de besøgte fitness centre og den anvendte playlist. Der er dog bevidst ingen kritik eller bedømmelse af de enkelte instruktører.

Som det fremgår, er det ikke os alle 3, der er med til alle 13 klasser.

Her er projektet:

Indvejning 29/7/15:
Ivar: 90kg – Hvilepuls 51, Max.puls 170
Karin: 73kg
Jackie: 63kg

Dag 1 (Onsdag 29/7 18:05): Birkerød ved Line
Playlist: Release 64 med udskiftning af 2’er og 4’er.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 58-2 Strobeligt, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 The Phoenix, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 64-8 If You Surrender, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Karin: Hård start! Blev nødt til at starte uden “resten af holdet”, da Jackie & Ivar skulle se fodboldkampen Jablonec mod FCK på TV 🙂

Dag 2 (Torsdag 30/7 19:10): Birkerød ved Tina
Playlist
: Tina var gået i historiebøgerne; flere tracks vi enten ikke have prøvet før eller på nuværende tidspunkt har glemt 🙂
53-1ab. 1a: Written In The Stars/Are You Ready For This, 35-2 The United Vibe, 21-3 Everyday, 21-4 Rising Up, 36-5 Don’t You Wanna Feel, 33-6 Behind the Cow, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 21-8 Prince of Darkness, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Rigtig godt med de 3 tracks fra 21 releasen (over 10 år siden)
Karin: Pulsen helt oppe og toppe!
Jackie: Stakkels de 3, der var der for første gang – kompliceret koreografi.

Dag 3 (Fredag 31/7 18:10): Falkoner ved Henrik Hallberg & Ditte Kromann
Vurdering af center: Fint placeret center. Ud af Metroen, til venstre og så ligger centeret midt på pladsen i samme bygning som Gourmet Burger stedet Halifax. Receptionen og afslapnings-sofaer er i stue-højde, fitness og sale i 1. kælder og omklædning i nederste kælder.
Positivt: Cool meget bred og ikke så dyb holdsal. Brusere har en knap i stedet for den irriterende bevægelses-sensor og der er ovenikøbet mulighed for at regulere temperaturen på vandet!
Negativt: Holdsalen er omgivet af maskiner – der er i realiteten ingen steder at vente på at komme ind til klasse uden at stå i vejen for andre brugere af centeret eller i mit tilfælde, hvor jeg lænede mig op af hvad der viste sig at være modvægtene til en leg-press.
Playlist: 64’eren havde i denne omgang 5 tracks udskiftet, men desværre ikke 4’eren. Til gengæld et glædeligt gensyn med 8 fra Release 44.
62-1ab Someone Like You/Home Alone, 45-2 Back to Innocense, 64-3 You’ve Got the Love, 64-4 Blast Off, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 61-6 Get Low, 58-7 It’s a Fight, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Sjovt at prøve et nyt center og møde en instruktør man ikke har haft før. Ikke en særlig vokal klasse.
Da Jackie havde arbejdsmæssige forpligtelser og Karin var til styrketræning og 5km cykling ifm. genoptræning af knæ, var det ellers min tur til at være enlig repræsentant, men Tina overraskede og mødte op for at opleve en time fra salen, så Birkerød var i sidste ende fint repræsenteret.

Dag 4 (Lørdag 1/8 9:35): Birkerød ved Camilia
Playlist: Endnu en 64-baseret playlist, dog med både 4’eren og 5’eren udskiftet – jubi! – og et gensyn med Turbulence.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 54-2 Turbulence, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 The Phoenix, 60-5 Rise Again, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 64-8 If You Surrender, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Jeg stod for sent op til morgenmad og må erkende at forsøget med at køre på tom mave fejlede, og jeg løb simpelthen tør for strøm efter Muay Tai. Kunne også godt mærke det er 3. dag i træk. Vægt opdatering: 88,5kg (-1,5kg)
Karin: Meget hårdt program; kastede næsten op!
Jackie: Droppede 64-9’eren for at se om det ville hjælpe på begyndende problem med lænden.

Dag 5 (Søndag 2/8 11:30): Herlev ved Mikkel
Vurdering af center: Endnu et godt placeret center lige ved siden af Herlev Centeret, hvor vi parkerede. Hele centeret er i ét plan, med kode skabe i stedet for kort. Hold-salen er rummelig, officielt med plads til 40 deltagere. Tryk-knap brusere.
Playlist: Spændende play-list hvor kun cool-down var fra 64’eren.
58-1ab Blow Me/Scream, 63-2 Badboi, og 55-3 Don’t feel like love, 60-4 Emergency, 50-5 Nessaja, 57-6 This is Love, 48-7 The Last Fight, 61-8 Like a Rainbow, 28-9 Switch, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Virker som et fasttømret hold hvor mange kender hinanden, på samme måde som Birkerød.
Karin: 4. BC – time på 5 dage ! Fight for ever 🙂
Jackie: Dejligt center.

Dag 6 (Mandag 3/8 19:45): Birkerød ved Tina
Playlist: Endnu en god og energisk playliste, og da vi var aftenens sidste hold, fik vi et bonus track 7 med i købet 🙂
53-1ab. 1a: Written In The Stars/Are You Ready For This, 61-2 Shot Me Down, 45-3 Because the Night, 36-4 Zombie, 56-5 Stamp On the Ground, 50-6 Gimme Dat, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 44-8 Your Shining,  64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: Med “Shot Me Down”, “Stamp On the Ground” OG både “La Nina Mechanica” og “Let the Beat Go” kunne det kun blive en god aften!
Karin: Happy, happy happy hour! 😀
Jackie: Varmt!

Pernille tog dette fantastiske billede på vej hjem fra klassen mandag; mon ikke de fleste af os følte det var en perfekt afslutning på en rigtig god aften
.

Dag 7 (Tirsdag 4/8 17:00): Field’s ved Emilie
Vurdering af center: Mit første besøg i Field’s.
Fitness.dk ligger på øverste etage, og er i ét plan. Skabene bruger medlemskort. Bruser med tryk-knap og temperatur regulering. Rigtig god stemning til Combat klassen. Holdsalen med instruktør på hævet scene – første gang jeg ser det i Danmark. Medlemmerne, der klart kender hinanden, snakker livligt indbyrdes indtil klassen starter og instruktør maner til ro.
Playlist: God playlist med mange gamle kendinge og en enkelt (Firestarter) jeg muligvis ikke har prøvet før 🙂
61-1ab Wrecking Ball/Beautiful Monster, 63-2 Badboi, 62-3 Give a Little Love, 55-4 Firestarter, 50-5 Nessaja, 64-6 Black Widow, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 42-8 Miracle, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Igen sjovt at prøve både nyt center og instruktør. Er ellers ved at være lidt træt og øm nu. Jeg drømte faktisk om Combat i nat. Det har jeg heller aldrig prøvet før…  😛
Karin: Fri! 😀

Dag 8 (Onsdag 5/8 18:05): Birkerød ved Line
Playlist: Interessant at både “The Phoenix” og “Your Shining” som alligevel er hhv. 2 og 5 år gamle i øjeblikket flittigt bliver brugt af forskellige instruktører.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 58-2 Strobelight, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 The Phoenix, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: En lidt træt indsats fra min side, hvilket ærger mig.
Karin: Hvorfor gør jeg egentlig det her?!
Jackie: Hårdt, men godt! Vægt status 62.5kg (-0.5)

Dag 9 (Torsdag 6/8)
17:05: Nørrebro ved Sara

Vurdering af center: fitness.dk indgang og reception ligger på 2. sal over Netto. Der er en parkeringskælder, hvor vi valgte at parkere (kr 20). Skabslågerne i skifterum kræver hængelås. Har man ikke selv en med, kan den købes for kr. 65 eller lejes for kr. 10. Første gang man ryger i fælden, kan man dog med sit medlemskort som depositum, låne en. Bruserne er de samme som i Birkerød. Holdsalen er på samme niveau som indgang/reception. Inde i fitness centeret er der rulle-trapper, der fører ned til gym hvor, formoder jeg, man blandt andet kan finde stairmasters 😛
Holdsalen er meget rummelig.
Playlist: Dejligt genhør med Shine On
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 45-2 Back to Innocense, 53-3 Shine On, 48-4 Come In Hard, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 45-8 See the Light, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: Det var en god time med god energi.
19:10: Birkerød ved Tina
Playlist: Tina havde lagt Rammstein ind i cooldown, men desværre nåede touren ikke til klassen i dag, så det var “kun” de fornuftige ikke-så-crazy Birkerød Ninjaer der alene nød godt af den gode playlist.
53-1ab Written in the Stars/Are You Ready For This, 13-2/3 Call Me Manana, 40-3 Sweetheart, 36-4 Zombie, 49-5 Don’t Need, 50-6 Gimmie Dat, 39-7 Hardcore Angel, 42-7 Escalibur 2000, 61-8 Like A Rainbow, 55-9 You’re Gonna Love This, 16-10 Feuer Frei

Dag 10 (Fredag 7/8) 17:00: Fields ved Andy
Mit andet besøg i Fields på 4 dage. Jeg kan virkelig godt li’ stedet og holdet. Hvis det ikke var så “langt ude” kunne det nemt blive til mit andet Combat hjem 🙂
Playlist: En tilståelse. Andy havde fat i nogle gode gamle tracks, jeg ikke umiddelbart kunne sætte ID på, og da jeg skulle ud i byen på date efter klassen, havde jeg ikke tid til at kigge arkiverne igennem, så playlisten har nogle huller ;P
1ab Pas, 2 Pas, 60-3 Fly Away, 62-4 Dark Horse, 5 Pas, 61-6 Get Low, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 8 Pas, 62-9 3 Kingz, 60-10 Now We Are Free (Et af mine absolut favorit tracks)
Ivar: Min 9. Combat klasse på 9 dage. Jeg følte mig ikke nær så træt som de sidste par dage. Second wind, eller bare energisk inspireret…

Dag 11 (Lørdag 8/8 9:35): Birkerød ved Camilia
Playlist: Playlisten endte med at blive lidt utraditionel, da vi blev afbrudt af brandalarm midt i klassen.  Men vi kæmpede til:
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 57-2 Let’s Go, 53-3 Shine On, [brandalarm], 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 53-3 Shine On, 62-4 Dark Horse, 53-5 True Believer, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 57-8 Feel Alive

Ivar: Så er vi på home-stretch. I dag Birkerød, Amager i morgen og så slutter vi af i Birkerød på mandag. Men Camilia var ikke med på at det skulle være en stille og rolig trillen i mål, så vi fik en svedig time, hvor vi  i bogstavligste forstand var “on fire” 🙂
Karin:

Dag 12 (Søndag 9/8 10:00): Amager Strand ved Ditte
Vurdering af center: Amager Strand er et nyt center. Det er ikke specielt stort, men virker fint. Husk hængelås til skabene. Holdsalen er rummelig og med meget naturlig lys fra vinduerne. Uden at holdet virkede specielt “indspist” var der vist nok en lille kerne af faste Combattere.
Playlist: God playlist med fin blanding af relativ nye og de rigtige klassikere.
62-1ab Someone Like You/Home Alone, 49-2 Kick In the Teeth, 52-3 When I Close My Eyes, 25-4 Jigga Jigga, 59-5 Bright Like the Sun, 59-6 Danger Zone, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: Det er så fedt, inspirerende og energi-givende at opleve nye centre og hold.

Dag 13 (Mandag 10/8 19:45): Birkerød ved Sara
… og turen nåede til vejs ende 🙂
Playlist: Passende at slutte af med “I Was Here” 😉
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 49-2 Kick In the Teeth, 53-3 Shine On, 48-4 Come In Hard, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 63-8 Shine, 62-9 3 Kingz, 62-10 I Was Here. 
Ivar: Puha, det var hårdt. Er øm i benene og har begyndende inflammation i venstre albue. Det har ellers været virkelig sjovt og interessant inden for så kort tid at se forskellige centre, møde forskellige hold-mennesker og opleve stil-variationerne over instruktørerne.
Karin: har haft det mega sjovt!
Jackie: Dejlibgt at kunne få det normale “3 træninger om ugen” liv tilbage.

Slut vægt:
Ivar:87,9kg (-2,1kg)
Karin: 70kg (-3kg)
Jackie:61,7kg (-1,3kg)

Har man nørdede tendenser, gennemgår jeg trends i valg af releases for de forskellige mix-tracks her.

13 BodyCombat classes in 13 days

In an attempt to get rid of the holiday fat by means of, among other things, our favorite fitness class, vi are a couple of Birkerød Ninjas who have set ourselves the task of taking 13 BodyCombat classes in 13 days, from Thursday 29/7/2015 until and including Monday 10/8/15.

To make it a bit more interesting, we intend to collect data such as calories burned and weight loss in addition to reviews of the centers we visit and our subjective opinions on the playlists. We will intentionally not comment on the instructors, neither positively nor negatively.

Not all 3 of us have been able to attend all 13 classes.

Here is the project:

Weigh-in 29/7/15:
Ivar: 90kg – Resting HR 51, Max.puls 170
Karin: 73kg
Jackie: 63kg

Day 1 (Wednesday 29/7 18:05): Birkerød w/Line
Playlist: Release 64 with substituion of Track 2 and Track 4..
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 58-2 Strobeligt, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 Pheonix, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 64-8 If You Surrender, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Karin: Tough start!
Karin had to start before the rest of the troupe, as Jackie & Ivar had a football game to watch!

Day 2 (Thursday 30/7 19:10): Birkerød w/ Tina
Playlist
:  Tina had been back at the archives and we had several tracks we either hadn’t tried before or at least had forgotten 🙂
53-1ab. 1a: Written In The Stars/Are You Ready For This, 35-2 The United Vibe, 21-3 Everyday, 21-4 Rising Up, 36-5 Don’t You Wanna Feel, 33-6 Behind the Cow, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 21-8 Prince of Darkness, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Really nice with 3 tracks from 21, which after all is 11 years ago.
Karin: Reaching max-pulse!
Jackie: I sympathise with the 3 first-timers; it was a tough choreography!

Day 4 (Friday 31/7 18:10): Falkoner w/ Henrik Hallberg & Ditte Kromann
Review of center: Nicely located center. Out of the metro, to the left, and the center is at the middle of the square in the same building as the gourmet burger place, Halifax. Reception and relaxation area is a ground-floor level. Fitness and studio at -1 and changing rooms at -2.
Positive: Quite a cool very wide and not so deep studio. Makes for a potential long front row. The showers are button operated instead of irritating motion sensors and there are even water temperature regulators.
Negative: Studio entrance is surrounded by fitness machines – it’s nigh impossible to wait outside for the class without getting in someones way.
Playlist: The 64 this time had 5 tracks replaced, but unfortunately not Track 4. This was partly made up for, by a pleasant appearance of track 8 from release 44 (Your Shining).
62-1ab Someone Like You/Home Alone, 45-2 Back to Innocense, 64-3 You’ve Got the Love, 64-4 Blast Off, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 61-6 Get Low, 58-7 It’s a Fight, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: It was great fun trying a new center and an instructor I haven’t come accross before. The class was not particularly vocal.
As Jackie had work commitments and Karin had some restitution for her knee, it was Ivar’s turn to go it along, but Tina surprised us by taking a class from the floor rather than the stage, for a change, so Birkerød was well represented.

Day 4 (Saturday1/8 9:35): Birkerød w/ Camilia
Playlist: Yet another 64-based playlist, though both track 4 and 5 were substituted – yeah! – and a pleasant revisit by Turbulence.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 54-2 Turbulence, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 Pheonix, 60-5 Rise Again, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 64-8 If You Surrender, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: I got out of bed too late for breakfast and the attempt at taking the class on an empty stomach failed spectacularly. I completely ran out of power after Muay Tai. I can feel this is the 3rd class in a row for me. I have gone to 87.5kg losing 2.5, but the first kilos are always the easiest for me.
Karin: Very tough program; I nearly puked!
Jackie: I skipped track 9 to see if it would improve my lower back, which have started to bother me..

Day 5 (Sunday 2/8 11:30): Herlev w/ Mikkel
Review of center: Another well located center, right next to the Herlev Shopping Mall, where we chose to park. The whole gym is in one level. There are coded lockers rather than card operated and showers are push-button operated. The studio capacity is 40 participants.
Playlist: Exciting play-list where only track 10 Cooldown was from the current release (64).
58-1ab Blow Me/Scream, 63-2 Badboi, og 55-3 Don’t feel like love, 60-4 Emergency, 50-5 Nessaja, 57-6 This is Love, 48-7 The Last Fight, 61-8 Like a Rainbow, 28-9 Switch, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: The BodyCombat class seems like a solid crew where many of the participants know each other.
Karin: 4. BodyCombat class in 5 days! Fight for ever 🙂
Jackie: Very nice center.

Day 6 (Monday 3/8 19:45): Birkerød w/ Tina
Playlist: Yet another good and energetic playlist, and since we were last class of the night, we were treated with a bonus track-7.
53-1ab. 1a: Written In The Stars/Are You Ready For This, 61-2 Shot Me Down, 45-3 Because the Night, 36-4 Zombie, 56-5 Stamp On the Ground, 50-6 Gimme Dat, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 44-8 Your Shining, , 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: Come on! With “Shot Me Down”, “Stamp On the Ground” AND both “La Nina Mechanica” and “Let the Beat Go” this could only turn out to be an excellent evening.
Karin: Happy, happy happy hour! 😀
Jackie: Warm!
Pernille captured this amazing image on the way home from the class; I think most of us felt it was the perfect finish to a really good evening.

Day 7 (Tuesday 4/8 17:00): Field’s ved Emilie
Review of center: My first visit at Field’s fitness.dk. On the top floor and in one level. Lockers use cards. Button operated showers with temperature regulation. There was a really good atmosphere in the Combat Class. Everyone was chatting among themselves right until class start.
Playlist: Good playlist with many oldies but goodies and possible one I had not tried before (Firestarter).
61-1ab Wrecking Ball/Beautiful Monster, 63-2 Badboi, 62-3 Give a Little Love, 55-4 Firestarter, 50-5 Nessaja, 64-6 Black Widow, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 42-8 Miracle, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Again great fun trying a new center and instructor. I have to admit, I am beginning to be a bit sore and tired. I actually dreamt about BodyCombat last night. That’s another first for me… 😛
Karin: Day off! 😀

Day 8 (Wednesday 5/8 18:05): Birkerød w/ Line
Playlist: It’s interesting that both “The Phoenix” and “Your Shining”, which after all are 2 and 5 years old respectively, at the moment are so frequently used by different instructors.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 58-2 Strobelight, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 The Phoenix, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: A little lacklustre contribution from me this time around, not good enough.
Karin:
Jackie: Hard, but good! Weight status 62.5kg (-0.5)

Day 9 (Thursday 6/8)
17:05: Nørrebro w/ Sara
Review of center:
fitness.dk entrance and reception is at 2nd floor above the Netto shop. Underneath is a parking cellar that we used (kr. 20). Lockers need a pad-lock that can be bought at reception at kr. 65 or rented at kr. 10. First time you fall into the trap though, you can borrow one using your membership card as collateral. Showers are the same as at Birkerød. The spacious studio is on the same level as the entrance/reception. Inside the gym, there are escalators connecting the level with the one below, where I assume a stairmaster can be found among all the equipment 🙂
Playlist: Great reunion with the Shine On track from 53.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 45-2 Back to Innocense, 53-3 Shine On, 48-4 Come In Hard, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 45-8 See the Light, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: It was a good class, with great energy.
19:10: Birkerød w/ Tina
Playlist: Tina had a treat in store with a Rammstein in the cool-down, however, the tour didn’t make it to Birkerød, so only the not-quite-as-crazy Birkerød ninja were able to enjoy the great playlist.
53-1ab Written in the Stars/Are You Ready For This, 13-2/3 Call Me Manana, 40-3 Sweetheart, 36-4 Zombie, 49-5 Don’t Need, 50-6 Gimmie Dat, 39-7 Hardcore Angel, 42-7 Escalibur 2000, 61-8 Like A Rainbow, 55-9 You’re Gonna Love This, 16-10 Feuer Frei

Day 10 (Friday7/8) 17:00: Fields w/ Andy
My second visit to Field’s in 4 days. I really like the center and the class. If only they weren’t so far away from home, I could see this becoming my second Combat home. 🙂
Playlist: I have to start of with a confession. Andy had a few really old tracks that I couldn’t immediately identify, and as I was out in town right after the class, I did not have time to check my archives, so there are a few holes in the playlist this time around.
1ab Pass, 2 Pass, 29-3 Fly Away, 62-4 Dark Horse, 5 Pass, 61-6 Get Low, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 8 Pass, 62-9 3 Kingz, 60-10 Now We Are Free (Actually one of my all-time favourite tracks)
Ivar: My 9th Combat class in 9 days. I didn’t feel nearly as tired as I have been the last few days. Either second wind or just energetically inspired…

Dag 11 (Saturday 8/8 9:35): Birkerød w/ Camilia
Playlist: This ended up with a somewhat unusual playlist, as the class was interrupted by a fire-alarm in the middle of the class. We did, however, end up fighting to:
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 57-2 Let’s Go, 53-3 Shine On, [brandalarm], 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 53-3 Shine On, 62-4 Dark Horse, 53-5 True Believer, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 57-8 Feel Alive

Ivar: OK, we’re on the home-stretch. Today Birkerød, Amager tomorrow and then the grand finale at Birkerød. However, Camilia was not at all inclined to make it a walk in the park on the way to the goal-line, so it was a tough and sweaty class, where we literally were “on fire” 🙂
Karin: Emergency! Someone call 911!

Day 12 (Sunday 9/8 10:00): Amager Strand w/ Ditte
Review of center: Amager Strand is a new center. It’s not particular large, but appears smart. Remember a padlock for the lockers. The stuido is very spacious and with great natural light from large windows. Without the class appearing clique, there seemed to be a small core group of regular Combatters.
Playlist: A good playlist with a fine mix of relatively new and real classics.
62-1ab Someone Like You/Home Alone, 49-2 Kick In the Teeth, 52-3 When I Close My Eyes, 25-4 Jigga Jigga, 59-5 Bright Like the Sun, 59-6 Danger Zone, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: I am really enjoying seeing new centers, meeting new classes and experiencing different instructors.

Dag 13 (Monday 10/8 19:45): Birkerød w/ Sara
… and somehow, we reached the end of the tour 🙂
Playlist: It was fitting to ginish off with “I Was Here” 😉
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 49-2 Kick In the Teeth, 53-3 Shine On, 48-4 Come In Hard, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 63-8 Shine, 62-9 3 Kingz, 62-10 I Was Here. 
Ivar: Well, it was certainly hard. I have sore legs and a beginning inflammation of my left elbow, but it has been worth it. It has been great fun and very inspiring to see the different gyms, meet the different classes and experience the variation of styles among the instructors.
Jackie: It will be great getting our normal “3 training passes a week” life back.

Slut vægt:
Ivar: 87.9kg (-2.1kg)
Karin:70kg (-3kg)
Jackie:61.7kg (-1.3kg)
