well, it's France, so 10-15years behind the US, progress wise
just got back, they took it easy for my 1st time, a little boxing, some ground basics, basic work out and see you next thursday.
I really ain't in shape at all, so I take it they wanted me to have a little fun so I'm not discouraged too early, but I did my own little "push" for myself and felt great about it. We'll see tomorrow how my body responds but for now, a good shower and I'll be good to go. (actually just got back a minute ago)
