The Hunger Games Workout
The much anticipated HUNGER GAMES WORKOUT is FINALLLLYYY here!!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am to release this video. It is a culmination of everything I’ve been learning and working on since my start as a YouTuber! To write, produce, edit, and star in a mini workout movie was a lot of work!
Yes, I just called this a mini workout “movie”.
I have never ever in my life spent so much time preparing for and editing a video for YouTube. Ever!!!! So that’s why I think it deserves to be called a movie. Haha. Well, in my eyes at least.
I learned how to add fireballs and animation in this video which I’ve never done before. I almost gave up after watching a billion tutorials and not getting it to work. It was so FRUSTRATING!!!!! But remember what I always say? Actually, I don’t know what I always say, but it should probably be something like KEEP GOING, NEVER GIVE UP, or BE RESILIENT. Something along those lines.
So when I finally found the right combination of buttons to push in Final Cut Pro, and the flames appeared over my footage…the feeling was INDESCRIBABLE. It was soooooooo satisfying. I reminded me of the first time I ever made a website. I smiled from ear to ear!!! And I kept telling myself how amazing life was.
Anyway, I want to thank YOU GUYS for inspiring me to make this video. In fact, I didn’t even know what The Hunger Games were until last week when I was in New York and several of you kept asking for a Hunger Games workout. So I asked on facebook, “Who wants a Hunger Games workout?” and like 700 of you gave me thumbs up. I thought that was a pretty prominent sign that I should do something about it.
So that night I went out and bought a ticket to go see the movie with absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into…and let me tell you, I am in love with the characters and fascinated by the story. I didn’t watch 1/3 of the movie because it was so gory (I don’t do well with scary/blood stuff) but I adored the relationships between the characters, especially the love that develops between Katniss and Peeta.
I am going to actually get the books now because I am so intrigued. So thank you POPsters for igniting my latest obsession! You showed me a gem I didn’t see! Seriously, THANK YOU!
Oh yeah, and try the workout! You can workout to it for real. I didn’t roll down a dirty hill in Central Park several times and paint red lipstick on my forehead in public for nothin 😛
Have fun! And listen to the commentary! Especially the one at the end where I talk about burpees…
