When I started
As a toddler
How I started
I snuck into a pool, after sitting on the edge with my feet dangling in the water for as long as I could resist jumping in. I did not have permission to go swimming. Luckily, I had had some swim lessons and I was spared from drowning.
Why I love it
I love the freedom of swimming. I feel like a prima ballerina in the pool, or a mermaid. Water is my natural element. Because I never swim alone, swimming is a social activity and makes for a lot of special memories.
How I stay motivated
Warm water for swimming!
I won my competitive swimming medals a long time ago
My baby bike looked exactly like a motorcycle. I used to ride it in the house. Grandfather promised me a monkeywrench if I joined him in his workshop, in the basement. I joined him - riding straight down the stairs!Even a visit to the E.R. with a lump the size of an egg on my forehead did not deter me from riding. I sitll keep my bike inside the house, I love riding so much.
How can I describe how much I love riding my bike? Bike riding lets me enjoy the outdoors while exercising and feeling the wind in my face.
My bike is waiting for me every morning. I simply cannot resist the allure of bike riding. I ride to work and to my swim lessons, so I get my workouts done as a matter of course. Plus, I get a lot of compliments on the definition in my leg muscles. Yay!
I overcame my fear of riding my bike over the huge bridge to the mainland. I ride over the bridge several times a week.
I got a weight lifting book out of the library. I was a swim teacher and a ballet student. My friend asked me to teach fitness classes for seniors. I became an AFAA certified group exercise leader, a SilverSneakers Instructor & a CPR instructor. Eleven years after my friend's invitation, I am still teaching fitness.
I feel good.
I would like to be a healthy old lady teaching fitness to her peers.
