First Gym type class at the Y

Sunday, November 08, 2015

They started a new small group class at the Y called Fit Together. It is for people who are just starting an exercise program and need to learn how to put a routine together.

This was the first week of the class, so we did 10 minutes of 'light' cardio: jogging in place, jumping our feet back and forth from front to back, intervals of slow lunges, and knee-high jogging. Then he spent 10 minutes or so showing us slowly other things that we'd be incorporating into the cardio intervals later on at a quicker pace. Then 15 minutes of Pilates and 10 minutes of stretching.

Having done all that, I can say that my leg and hip flexibility is better than the other people in the class, but my balance and upper arm strength/flexibility and my stamina is probably worse.

My abs have only one thing to say. OUCH!

    That sounds like a neat program for those of us who find the gym intimidating.
