I’ve been on a quest to shake up my normal fitness routine and have found out two things: I’m not as fit as I thought/wish I was and I’m not as flexible as I thought/wish I was. Oh well, gotta start somewhere right? Last week I attended the Tone To The Max class with Sarah at the Y. The class and instructor were both great, but I didn’t like the atmosphere at the Y. I really don’t want to spend my entire workout listening to the kids screaming on the basketball course. I am glad they’re exercising and having fun, but I don’t think a “family” atmosphere is for me. Plus, it’s too expensive to join just to attend class 2-3x per week. Per Valerie’s suggestion, I bought my first workout DVD called [The Squeeze](http://www.collagevideo.com/cart/default.aspx) which I did this morning. Having not done it before, and not wanting to send myself to the ER, I opted for the “Power Squeeze” workout that was only 30 minutes. What a great workout! I like the instructor; she’s very succinct and straightforward. The workout was intense, but not impossible to do and I could do it in my little den. I had a couple of moments of adjusting myself to the position, but I felt like I got a good workout. Since I’m stiff in the morning, I might wait to do this later in the day, or do a quick power walk beforehand to warm up. Hopefully, I won’t grow bored of this!
Next up, tennis in the fall. Steve and I are going to attempt to play. I used to play on my HS team and Steve’s never done it. Should be quite amusing.
