I’m not athletic, but I have always tried to remain active by exercising in some way. Lately, because of some back issues, my exercise routine has been altered. I’m doing more physical therapy and gentle yoga, which is helping, but I long to ramp up the intensity just a little. Recently I got to thinking about all the different kinds of exercises I have done during the years. Some were done at home to video tapes, or as in the case of running, in my neighborhood; for others, I went to a gym or fitness class. Here’s a list I came up with as I let my mind wander back through the years:
Dancercize (or jazzercise)
Morning Stretch with Joanie Greggains (I had to look up her name on the internet)
Taebo (tapes with Billy Blanks)
Treadmill at home
There certainly is variety, which I think is a good thing. Different experiences just fit better at different points in my life. I think that’s the way it is with a lot of things in life!
