Not Your Grandma's Water Aerobics

It must be the stress of the end of the school year or wedding planning, but my workout routine has gone downhill in the past month or so!  When I saw this flyer for a Deep Water Workout, I thought that it sounded like the perfect thing for me. 

On Monday before the first class, I was nervous and excited.  With a floatation belt around my waist, I bravely stepped into the freezing cold water.  Upon hearing my whining, the instructor snapped that "I wouldn't be cold for long!"  And she was right! 

If you've never tried a Deep Water Workout, you're in for a surprise.  It's not your grandma's water aerobics.  It is truly a great workout.  In no time at all, we were running underwater, doing jumping jacks, lunges, and more, and no, I was not cold anymore. 

The best part of all is that I wasn't sweating and no one could see what I was doing because we were all underwater.  I felt confident about what I was doing. 

Even though it was my first workout in about a month, I didn't feel sore, and it was a great experience.  It was just what I needed to get myself into gear. 

Have you tried running in the water or water fitness?  What did you think?
