My Trainer!!

Thursday, November 07, 2013

When I first joined a gym they assigned a trainer to me. I told her what my capabilities were to start with. She put me on a treadmill. Help!! Don't leave me!! She really didn't even tell me how to slow it down or how to be sure it didn't go too fast. I then told her that water aerobics would be a better fit for me. She showed me some moves and that was fine. But she was so 'stick thin', almost anorexic, that it made me feel like there was no way I could ever look like that. Or if I even wanted to.
That was just a temporary trainer. So then I started the aerobics class. Now that I enjoyed, was able to keep up and found the group encouraging. The only draw back was how cold it was to get out of the pool. Brrr. I am just such a wimp!!

    Ya! for going! I've never tried water aerobics, but I don't like being cold either.

    This is great Arlene! Water aerobics is so good for you! You will get used to the cold.

    Getting in the pool is the hard part for me - on two levels. First is just getting my suit on and swimming itself. I think doing laps is tremendously tedious. Second is just getting in the water. I usually swim in the evening when the swim teams are done practicing. The water temperature is a little cooler then than it is in the morning when the retirees are doing water aerobics. So some days I just don't want to get in the pool. Once I'm in, though, I'm fine.
