Working Out at the JCC
Sunday, February 16, 2020
When I got back from Peru last year, my friend Carol told me about the local Jewish Community Center to which she belonged, where she made use of the pool. After taking the tour, I decided to join too, for $50 a month.
My first day, I went in the pool with Carol.
After that, I did some time in the gym first - a little time on a bike, then some of the strengthening equipment.
But what with the cold and having to have a heavy coat and sometimes boots and the drudge of multiple changing, I have been going in the pool and foregoing the gym until warmer weather.
I haven't lost weight, but I HAVE gained range of motion and some strength. We go 3 times a week - there was only a spell when Carol couldn't go because her mother had passed away, and then there was a spell when I couldn't go due to a bout of food poisoning. But other than that, 3 times a week, I'd say I was getting my $50 worth!
