A Love Affair Rekindled


Several years ago some friends and I decided to get fit...(Lia, Jacque and Julie). We started going to aerobics at WV Fitness Center at 530 each morning. What a very fit time in my life! We had this wonderful teacher...Cheri. I still miss her and would LOVE to find someone as motivating as she was. Most of the classes we took were STEP classes!!! I LOVE step! Cheri used to tell all of us we were having a love affair with our benches and we needed to try other things. I did end up trying other things...sitting around eating cookies and sweets.....being too busy to exercise.....saying over and over that I'll do it tomorrow.....guess what?? Those things didn't do much for me except for bring me many unwanted pounds. So, I've started up my affair with the "bench" again. Thanks to my wonderful Dad (thank you thank you Dad!!)....we have a family membership to the YMCA and guess what they have there??? Yep...STEP CLASSES!! Whoopedde woo hoo! It turns out that Step is like riding a bike, once you learn you don't ever really forget. And...lifting weights again is AWESOME! Josh and Zack are my work out partners..... I do miss you Lia (the best workout partner ever...shhhh don't tell my boys.)

Good for you Kimmy, I really love STEP too. I thought I was the best work out partner ever, well the three times we went running together? :)

You go girl! I love step aerobics! Have you ever tried water aerobics? I know, I know, the thought brings old grandma ladies to mind, but if you get into a good class it's a ton of fun and a great workout.

Yay!! I'm so glad you found a step class! It's awesome isn't it?! But never the same as working out with a good friend. Have fun with it!!

They classes look like they would be fun! I think I would need to be in a little better shape to take one though.....an oxymoron I suppose, but I am not sure I could keep up! ha!!!

I haven't worked out regularly since I had you guys to motivate me. I wish the gym I belong to had classes, but it doesn't. Keep it up!
