Last week I tried to win a contest and got to workout with Thomas Rhett at Snap Fitness on Friday. I thought I had lost by 9 votes but the radio station put another spot in and I got to go still! I was already set to see him and Jason Aldean Friday night but when I won the workout, that made my year. It was by far one of the best days of my life and I would relive it over and over if I could. I was able to bring a friend with me and I choose one of my good friends Pamela.
I made an ass of myself at first by admitting how nervous I was and that I have only met Donny Osmond. I realize now, that was a lie. I interviewed Casey Mears at the RIR race a few year ago. See what nerves do to you..it makes Thomas Rhett pick on you which was fine in my book!
He gave us a signed cd with our names on them and we got to take pictures with him. We then had to do circuit workouts. The workout was actually pretty tough. I only typically do cardio at home. I run on the treadmill, I TRY to do Zumba and I do alot of hip/leg stuff. I think I did great at the workout but I feel like it was hard on me because I never do weights.
The hardest part of the workout for me was the burpees. I hate them. It was the last thing we had to do and if I never do another one in my life, I would not care.
When I was on the treadmill, TR came beside me and ran. That was heaven right there. He ran for a bit and then just chilled and talked to us. He was so down to earth and asked questions about our life and things we liked to do. I did try to get him to run Rugged Maniac with me! We also got to talk to his trainer, Johnny. He was a super nice guy and talked to us for a long time. It was nice to get to know them and what their lives are like. They travel so much and I could never imagine that lifestyle.
Friday night we got to see him and Jason Aldean in concert. It was such a good show. We had a blast and definitely bragged to people around us that we got to workout him Thomas Rhett earlier in the day.
I almost did not enter this contest. I thought I had no shot at winning. I am glad I did enter and so thankful that I got this opportunity to workout with someone who is famous but also an amazing and nice guy. Thomas Rhett is by far one of my favorite country music stars!
