Loving water aerobics!!!

Thursday, June 28, 2012

When I attended my first water aerobics class 4 weeks ago I wasn't sure I would like it. Even though I live in a small town I knew no one in the class. At the second session a friend with whom I had taught for 20+ years walked in. It is great having her in class as we constantly joke with each other as to who is working the hardest.

The instructor does a great job of choosing exercises that can be modified for everyone in the class. One lady is 91 yrs. old.

Today when I left the class I was totally exhausted. Feels great to be able to do jumping jacks and lunges again. New knee feels great. However, knee replaced two years ago does not like squats.

I highly recommend water aerobics. So glad the hotel lets us have classes there and the price is very reasonable. Best of all no gym fees or membership requirements.

    Water aerobics is such great exercise for everyone and so easy on the joints. Glad you're enjoying it!

    I remember when I did my first water aerobic class I actually sweated it was so hard. I would love to find one like that again!

    I love water aerobics too!! I go to class at LA Fitness. As a matter of fact, it was their abundance of water aerobics classes that got me to join them.

    I'm trying to find a gym that has that -- one gym has aqua zumba - not sure I could keep up with that but I almost want to try! After the wedding perhaps.....

    Glad you're having a great time! :D I do water aerobics too but I usually go to the hotel pool alone. Praying I'll find someone who's also interested.

    I am not in a class right now, but and using the pool rather than the gym right now. Love the water and it is so much easier on your joints.
