Going to the health club

This is dedicated to all my blogger friends who have joined health clubs, take tae kwando, karate, are exercising on their own, or who have even thought about exercising. Great. Keep up the good work.

A woman felt as though her body had gotten totally out of shape, so she got her doctor's permission to join a health club and start exercising. She decided to take an aerobics class for seniors, and she went to the club for her first class. She bent, twisted, jumped up and down, and sweated for about an hour.

But, by the time she got her leotards on, the class was over.

If Aunt Virginia keeps this up we won't have to think of things to post about again.

I thought that was really funny...something I would do.

I finally quit paying gyms monthly fees and only going 5 times per month. I go more if I pay as I go. Pretty soon I'll be meeting Brian & Reva at the tract to walk every soon as it warms up.

Tao Kwan Do is great for your butt. If I tried to do it now, I probably would dislocate something.

Do you ever use you walk machine at home...I noticed it stored in Alipurr's bedroom?

Actually, we joined a health club and I use the treadmill and other machines there. There's really no place to set up our treadmill at home, although the one we have is a very good one, all computerized and everything.

We pay for a family membership and can go as often as we want. Husband likes to go about 3 times a week. I am forced to go when he goes, so you see how it all goes down.

Yes, Aunt Virginia, there is life for your jokes after you e-mail them to us. I didn't know she had such a good sense of humor. God bless her. I hope she keeps sending them on to us.

Ah, you made me giggle again. I love this!
It reminds me of Laura trying to get her speedos on for her swimming lesson each week - a source of great frustration for her & I always have to help!

I try to exercise every morning but usually babies waking up impedes this....So for good measure I try to watch a little FitTV. I figure the cost of the cable bill is probably close to health club dues. Dancer Girl likes to watch and try to keep up with Sharon Mann or Gilad. Some of the time we are all up following husband calls this baby steps. Anything that gets us off the couch is better than nothing. My personal favorites are Body Electric and Classical Stretch, both on Public Broadcasting System (PBS).

And then who could resist old favorites like Reunion Story or Ultimate Goals.

Keep going to the health club with Tomas, Motherkitty. You will feel better and meet lots of interesting people.

Very funny :) Maybe those tight stretchy garments are meant to give us incentive to exercise more!!

Too funny!! I go everyday or at least every other day to the gym now. However, I am mostly there to coach my son, I do a few exercises, but my cardiac condition prevents me from lifting any heavy weight. Your story reminds me of how slow my son is getting started, he stretches, then stretches again - I want to say, "alright - jeez! when are you gonna start the actual exercise!?!"

I really let out quite a giggle on that last line!

Hehe, what a cute post. I can totally relate - I just joined a health club and it takes me a very long time to find something comfortable to wear, from the clothes to the socks to the shoes. It would help to just buy new stuff (having 2 more kids since I last exercised has resulted in bigger feet, among other things) but then I have the cost of the membership itself to worry about, what more to a whole exercise wardrobe?
