Day 28 – Sunday in the fitness center a church is fast becoming a favorite workout for me. Getting in to a stepping class and leading it is major fun, it’s sweaty work, and when I mess up trying to lead, everyone gets a good laugh.
This part of my workout learning curve is teaching me that variety really is the spice of life. The move from weight training and machines to speed stepping on a simple platform lets me know that physical training can be done effectively without much equipment at all.
As with any fitness class, there are people of all levels of ability participating. Trying to help each person get the most out of the class is a real challenge–not to mention calling the class and trying to keep my own wind. But I do appreciate those who follow my lead. They push me to do better even if they don’t know it.
