Rock You Like a Boot Camp Hurricane, Baby

“You’re going to want to double those risers.”  The instructor walks over to me before class starts and motions to my step platform set up.

“You think so?”  Looks fine to me.

“Oh yeah.”  He steps up and down on my platform to demonstrate.

“You’re taller than me.”

“You’ll be bored.”

Hmm… maybe?

“While you’re at it double the plates on your barbell.”

“Even though I’m just getting back into an exercise regimen?”  Risk of unconsciousness and all that.

“Oh yeah.”

Okay, then.

Rock you like a hurricane!  Scorpions blast out at us.  My kinda boot camp, I smile.


“Run laps around the room!”

It’s early morning

Running?  Nobody said there would be any running —

The sun comes out

“Sprint at the far wall!”

Last night was shaking


And pretty loud

“Scissor run!”

My cat is purring

No, dude, you’re not passing me

Scratches my skin


So what is wrong with another sin?

Dizziness… should pass in a moment, yes?

Here I am

“Ten push ups!”

Rock you like a hurricane

“Jumping jack run!  Faster!”

Here I am

“Ten more push ups!”

Rock you like a hurricane


My body is burning

“Now hold!  Hold!”

It starts to shout

Shaking —

Desire is coming

“Jump up!  Higher!  Bend!”

It breaks out loud

“Hands on the floor!  Lower!”

The night is calling

“Jump up!  Higher!”

I have to go

“Again!  Faster!”

The wolf is hungry

Ohmigod —

He runs the show

“Drop to the floor!”

Lust is in cages

“Plank position!”

Till storm breaks loose

“Hands together!  Diamond!”

Just have to make it with someone I choose

“Body one inch from the floor!”

The night is calling, I have to go


The wolf is hungry

“One hand!”

He runs the show

“Other hand!”

He’s licking his lips


He’s ready to win

“Ten more seconds!”

On the hunt tonight

“What do you want out of your ten seconds??”

For love at first sting

Ohhh… mi… godddddd

Here I am

“Back up!  Down!  Faster!  Now slower!  Hold!”

Rock you like a hurricane

“Now that we’re warmed up — ”

Are you ready, baby?


An hour later, panting, my skin flushed, every pore sweating (glowing, yes?), I pick myself up…water, water….

“How do you feel?”  He already knows my answer.

Rock me like a boot camp hurricane, baby.

  1. Awesome stuff! Nice mix of words to say the least! haha
    Anything that shows up on my reader with Mathias Jabs wearing his 80’s Pink rock jacket is something I’m gonna take a look at!

  2. This was so cool, Danica! I listened on my way up to Cleveland to several great rockers! I like Heart, Adele and Pat Benatar who are such gutsy women! I like Bruce Springsteen, fun with Journey and the Stones rock well, but hurray for the Scorpions!! 🎶🎵

    1. I’m delighted that you like this one, Robin! A most excellent musical selection, too! I saw Pat Benatar not too long ago and she sounds as great as ever. I hadn’t heard the Scorpions in ages so it was a wonderful surprise in this exercise class. 🙂

      1. It is always special to hear someone enjoying similar songs and groups, Danica. I’m excited you saw Pat Benatar in person, thanks for letting me know she was as great as ever!
        ps. I used to think they were singing “raunchy as a hurricane!” haha! 😀

    1. Yes, I see what you mean. This is such a good song that I always enjoy listening to it.
      Effective exercise is challenging and also rewarding. I’m glad they’re doing something similar in the schools.
