And Now For Something Completely Different..lol
Today I had a very different workout from what I am used to!
I have been doing mostly Jazzercise for 2 years, with occasional videos, treadmills or walks.
My dh belongs to the YMCA and upgraded us to family level. I went years ago, but just went back today.
They have a ladies only workout room which is very nice.. you can avoid the singles scene (yes, it exists at the Y!) and it is quiet in there, walls painted mauve, lights are calm and there is a place to sit and have tea after your workout if you want.
Today, I got the the eliptical machine with my book on tape of LOTR and did 30 minutes. As I was working up a sweat, Galdalf was giving Pippen the history of the crystal!
Then I did the weight machines for about 20 min. Then, did my own exercises in the corner on the mats with weights, medicine ball and the big ball.
Burned a bunch of calories and got my hr up-as good or even better than my regular Jz workout.
Though I love the socialbility of the group classes, this was so nice as I could just zone.. and I did. It was nice b/c I felt I could really enjoy my workout and let go.. I used a lot of the moves I have learned over the years from videos, Jz and personal training. I was in my own world!
And it was a nice atmosphere. Also nice that I can go anytime and not have to wait for group classes to start. So, a nice alternative.. another choice.
Hope you all have had some good workouts lately!
