Further Along on the Tour de Splash

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

I made two visits to another private health club venue, and experienced two more instructors whom we will call C and D. Both of these were closer to on time (hurray!); both taught the entire class from the water; both were adequate. Though music was playing in both instances, neither made much use of it. Neither displayed much enthusiasm or energy or, come to that, a sense of humor. It was a bit like being led by Eyore.

Both of these ladies are certified instructors, which says that although your chances of injury are less than with the uncertified, it doesn't necessarily guarantee a great workout or a good time. I also should add that both C and D were substituting, so perhaps they are livelier with their regular classes than with strangers.

Still--an exercise class should be better than this, shouldn't it?

    I have this image of Eyore in a speedo splashing around the pool! Not a pretty sight, but funny! I am glad you have not lost your sense of humour.

    Love the background to your page!
Thanks for another great review... " like working out with Eeyore". Doesn't sound like it's too lively.
Not being a morning person, if this class was at 6:00 AM or so, Eeyore would be like me too.

    I agree- they are there to help out and should be enthusiastic.
