Getting a good stretch in before working out

I enjoyed filming assignment 3 because I chose to shoot fast moving content. Although some of my clips turned out a little shaky, I was trying to emulate the fast pace movement of working out. It was a little awkward bringing in my equipment to a public place, but I focused on my project and got it done. It was also nice finding someone that would let me film them because not everyone is comfortable with having someone film them. If I could go back, I would have liked to shoot more cardio and intense working out rather than muscle exercising. Overall, I know what I need to improve for next time including watching shaky film and holding the camera on certain shots. I had no problem with editing, so that part went smoothly.
