Andrew was right there, coaching me through the final reps of a 140lb bench press, with a voice that boomed and turned every head in the gym. "C'mon Deb! Do it! I'm not touching the bar", he thundered. I finished the rep, racked the bar, sprung up from the bench and met his palm in mine. I'd found my trainer!
With a little coaxing, Arlene seized the moment and stepped on to the platform to have her gorgeous blue sunhat judged among the rest. I watched my big sister laugh and mingle with a jolly woman in a statement red hat and a blonde in an ocean blue, Jane Jetson inspired design that took first place. Everyone clapped, more champagne flowed and just like that, we were thrust into the wonderful world of polo.
