Over the years I have changed my exercise routine continuously. That wasn't exactly planned, but it probably kept my interest up. I started with twice-a-week through Adult Education at the local junior high school. That was simple non-impact bending. That was too easy. Then I moved into Jazzercise, which was high impact. I began to really enjoy that. But it was only offered twice-a-week. My energy level blossomed. I now am up to six days per week, and sometimes even that isn't enough!
I joined many health clubs over the years. After the high
school routine, which got dull after a while, I needed to
find something that would allow more days of exercising.
It had to fit my schedule, since I've always worked full
time. There's no choice there! Adult Education classes are
only offered during the week for the most part and usually only once or twice a week. That's simply unacceptable for someone who needs to reduce stress, anxiety, nervous illness, depression and other problems.
I then joined an all-women's club, which was great! It was in a storefront but the place went bankrupt. I needed to move on. I joined a club open seven days a week and loved it. They had everything, mostly high-impact aerobics, my favorite. But they went bankrupt, as well. The company who purchased the club was too pushy and too interested in money first before pleasuring members. So I moved on.
I joined the Jewish Community Center and stayed there for 15 years until problems arose.
