I love doing a variety of aerobics and zumba classes. I must confess that my lack of coordination makes these types of workouts extremely challenging. I know you have seen me, I am the one in class who is at least 2 steps behind everyone else. I try to land a spot right up in the front so as not to miss a single step. Although I mentally process what I should be doing, my body simply refuses to cooperate. I feel like a 2000 pound gorilla wearing a tutu, clumsily out of step and time with the momentum of the class.
However, once I master the routines, which at times can take weeks, I feel wonderful. The workouts are a perfect way for me to challenge and test my physical limitations. It is precisely what I need to do to try to improve in these areas. One thing I do know is not lacking is my will and desire to stay in the best shape I can. Hopefully a positive attitude and perseverence helps me overcome many of my shortcomings.
How have you been challenged by your workouts? What steps have you taken to try and overcome these limitations?
