Our Water Aerobics Class

Monday, October 24, 2011

I really like our water aerobics class! It feels so good to stretch and flex all the muscles I am not used to using. I was getting OLD, sitting on the couch, reading, visiting with loved ones, and watching TV. I can still do all that, but not all the time. I feel alive! I can move! I love the interval training she leads us in doing when she alternates the difficulty and intensity of our exercise and then, at the last 15 minutes, when she moves us into Tai Chi and Yoga exercises, I feel as though I am moving into a transition from vigorous to going to the shower. It feels right. The stretches make my muscles feel stronger and my joints less stiff, much more moveable all the way around. Love it! I have been going every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but I am going to add Tuesdays and Thursdays to that now.

    I haven't tried water aerobics before - there is a group at the pool near my home - I will definitely give it a go - keep on enjoying the great benefits you are getting. emoticon

    I love your posts and this blog, too. It's just what I need to read today. Water aerobics always feels good, once I'm there.

    It really is a joint saver to exercise in the water. The instructor added a move today that will help both my knees and my quads. I'm excited. It felt so good.

I too love doing pretty much everything I can in the water.
