A Group fitness instructor I had once had a card game which meant everyone drew a card from a deck
A - 21
2 = 2, 3=3, J=11, Q=12, K=13
The suit determined the exercise, we alternated between a Cardio and a Core exercise.
One day she decided that the Burpees were included in the routine.. Spades..
I drew an ace of Spades and tried to hide it from her - she eventually saw the card and said that we still had to do them.
I hate burpees, HATE them and said that if we could leave that to last I'd do them, she would too and I would match her burpee for burpee and if I didn't do more than she could, I would do *everyones* burpees (8x21)...
I knew she'd change her mind
We all ended up doing boxing or something for the last 5 minutes of the class...
Sometimes the instructors' mouths write checks their body cant cash.
