Gym update: second class

As i told you, yesterday i was going to have my second class.

Considering that my knee is in pain since 2 days, i was decided to sacrify the class for some good swim.

Unfortunately for my knee, the swimming pool was full, so i had to go to the class as i planned at the beginning: DANCE AEROBIC.

piggy aerobic

It’s mainly a mix of different music and postures taken from different dance styles, like belly dance, and Hip Hop and Funk, but mixed with normal aerobic exercises. The idea is nice, the sport is different from the classic aerobic, not so big choreography to follow, but everything depends from your teacher… and this was the only problem.

She was little but over energetic… that can be fine for a good hour sport. The fact is that she was a bit enable to explain the exercises and this makes always the stuff a bit harder: how can you follow someone that keep on changing exercise without explaining what she is going to do?

By the way the music was amazing, i could do all the exercises without any particular effort and I loved the dance mix… but today i can’t move my knee 😦

PS. Dai Mamy che sto resistendo! ieri sono andata di nuovo in palestra e questa volta ho fatto dance aerobic che diciamo si adatta di piu’ a me! Carina, mi sono divertita e hanno messo un sacco di bella musica! Penso ci tornero’.


My new fitness club (will it last for 70 weeks?)

In my “friend of the diet” category I can’t avoid to add a little note about my latest fitness club.

So in September i was lucky and i found a super deal in a nice club near my house: 70 £ all included until December and no contract.

This means that for the next 3 months i will be able to participate to all the classes i want and i can use the swimming pool and the squash court without paying anything else. “Great” i said!

aerobiking??? Yesterday was my first class and first step to reach my diet goal! So at 7pm i was in the AEROBIKING class: I was thinking that bike + music could be a quite fair solution to sweat but with fun….it was just hell and the most horrible thing weren’t the exercises, but the SEAT of the bike!!!! However i couldn’t follow all the class properly, considering was a second level and i wasn’t trained at all, but i reached the end!

And because i didn’t have fun and i felt not satisfied, i decided to swim a bit and then i was HAPPY! The water is my element, i love swimming and it just make me feel good and relaxed … but don’t worry, i will keep on trying the rest of the courses…maybe i will find some other funny sport to alternate a bit with the swim.

Next class on wednesday… I will keep you updated!

PS. Mamy finalmente ieri sono tornata in palestra! Il problema e’ che ho voluto iniziare con una classe un po’ complessa, una specie di cyclette con la musica. TROPPO FATICOSO non hai idea e poi il sellino mi sta ancora facendo vedere le stelle. Comunque poi ho fatto un tuffo in piscina e mi sono ripresa. Domani ho un’altra lezione…. vediamo che succede!
