Thanks for the warm welcome, WETPTARMIGAN! I joined on a whim, but I'm really enjoying my SparkPeople experience so far!

Welcome, WHYNOTJ1! It's always great to have another instructor around to answer questions and make suggestions. Hope you make a big splash on SparkPeople!

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Thanks, LECATES! I'm always happy to share tips. I'm looking forward to attending some instructor training in March, and learning some new moves.

I was very excited to find a Water Aerobics team when I joined! I'm 58 and live in MA. My "fun job" is a water aerobics instructor in the evenings. I began as a participant in the classes some years ago and I loved it enough to become certified and teach on my own! I also learned to swim and passed a lifeguard test. (I also work full time during the day.) I teach 4 water classes a week (2 regular, 2 cardio--both in shallow water), and I swim laps every day.

Being able to exercise in the water probably saved my life because it helped me lose a considerable amount of weight. I have bad ankles and knees and wasn't able to exercise on land. However I still have more weight to lose. I'd also begun to slowly regain some of the weight I'd previously lost, so I joined SparkPeople to try a new approach.
