My co-worker invited me to workout with her at a rec centre. There were about 25 ladies involved in the total body conditioning class.
I really enjoyed it even though I probably haven't worked out that intensely in five years.
The class used a balance ball, medium hand weights, light weights, a mat and an aerobic step. I had used all equipment before but it was very good to have such a detail-aware leader paying attention to our form.
The music was appropriate, the temperature was excellent and there was a drinking fountain in the room.
I was pleased that the warm up was long enough to help these older muscles. The activity was totally challenging to me and the cool down was long enough that I do not feel stiff at all.
When I got home, a neighbour wanted to go for a walk, so I got out for some sunshine and more exercise.
Yipee- this is the direction that I want to go!!!
