[note: This post was written August 1, but for some reason never posted… since then I have taken a few more classes!]
The other day I did something I have never done before… an aerobics class. Despite working at the YMCA for over a year (like three years ago) I never took an aerobics class. I did do water aerobics for a bit with my mom but I never ventured into the aerobics studio.
Now that I am once again employed with the YMCA (at a different location) I am taking advantage of the aerobics classes I once shunned. My first class was “Bench and Box.” The class lasted an hour and was a combination of step aerobics, boxing, and kickboxing. Oh yeah and some ab work thrown in at the end.
(This is not my class… but a navy aerobics class… this is pretty much what I did during my class though. Hurray!)
I worked out for 30 minutes before I even went to the class. I was hot when I started and could barely breathe by the end. I did pretty well in the class though, I barely missed any steps and I kept up with the pace. I was really excited to keep up when I saw other people fall behind a bit. It was my first time but as always I am super competitive even when there is no competition involved.
I enjoyed the class and can’t wait to take another one so I can get better and do better as I get in better shape!
