Fitness Classes & Socializing
Posted by KT LaSalla ~ August 11, 2014
So often I hear about all the fun people have at their fitness classes. They meet many new people who enjoy similar activities and make new friends with those who frequent the same fitness classes.
In June I wrote, “How to Avoid Being a Couch Potato” (June 16, 2014, www.agelessaerobicdance.com/blog/). It had a list of Ideas for Everyday Movement. The third bullet talked about Moving while Socializing i.e., instead of just meeting a friend for coffee or lunch, why not add a walk in the park or a walk in the Mall.
My Virtual Assistant, Sherry Walter, who produces all these wonderful blogs for you with photos and illustrations (I just give her the body with the words), said: “KT, I had a chance to share with one of my health care professionals about using your wonderful Chair DVD to encourage movement in the arm with lymphedema, (see Sherry’s testimonial on my Service Page) but I wished I could transport you here to Ohio because I miss the social interaction and participation in your class.”
his weekly fitness classes that he really enjoys. I’m so proud of the attendees in my classes who go through this normal stage as they find a way to start up their class routine again.
I feel the point Sherry was making is when you take a class (or any kind of class to better yourself for the good you will receive in participating), reach out to like-minded people not only for friendship but also to encourage and spur one another on!
To Your Health,
