I go to water aerobics at my local pool and I enjoy it very much. I am unable to do high impact exercise as I have arthritis in both knees. I find the water aerobics is the perfect substitute. I am not 80, but when I am I hope I will be still fit enough to go.

Take one day at a time. I f you fail today try again tomorrow.

I am a little disappointed because at Bally's (the gym that I belong to) the aqua class is when I am at work.

I agree, I took one once and had the same problem. I felt uncomfortable with ours though because everyone who took it was 80 years old or very over weight (they looked at me like I was crazy to even think of taking the class).

If you don't love yourself....how can you expect others to.

Today I went to the local gym's aquafit class for the first time in a year, and I absolutely loved it! However, I can't help feeling that this particular sport is not geared towards the vertically challenged.

Squats, stretches and all things bending-overy meant sticking my head under water most of the time and whenever the instructor told us to bend till our shoulders were under the water I wanted to laugh, because mine already were!

With that in mind though, I left the class with some shortie pride that I managed to jump higher than my much taller friends AND kicked my toes out of water at one point. That's something when the water is up to your ears!!!

I think I'll be sticking to the shallow end of the pool next week...

Happy sparking everyone!
