I have two sessions of Aquafit under my bathing suit!
And - I am really enjoying it! Who knew?!
I don't feel out of place, even though I am the "newbie" in the class. This particular class has been together for sometime. At poolside, they know where to park the scooter, and rest the cane. They know not to announce to the instructor that they are having difficulty with a particular movement. They probably even know that someone of my height shouldn't stand in the deep end of the shallow area...walking through water shoulder deep is an extra workout!
I was afraid that this class might be full of stationary exercises. I am pleased to say that it is almost all some kind of walking and stretching. We also use foam dumb bells and noodles! We ski, we power walk, we pretend to be a rocking horse, we do bicep curls, and we ride a bike!
And I...rock the noodle!
Yes, the perceived wasteful hours spent on a pool noodle in the middle of the lake, have paid off in spades.
