Yes, that's a 2014 'resolution' ... well, more of an idea of how I can keep fit this year.
I have been loving the weekly Body Synergy classes that I have been doing for the last couple of years - it's a combination of 1/2 hour cardio/weight training/whole body vibration and 1/2 hour floor pilates. It's fab, and our trainer Lesa is amazing. Classes are maximum of 4, which means that the trainer can keep a close eye on everyone. Lately, our classes have stopped due to problems with the building, and to cut a long story short, Lesa won't be teaching for much longer anyway since she will be moving to full time study. So I've been wracking my brains as to what I will do in its place. There are Pilates classes nearby, but they're expensive and the time slots get full very quickly.
While internet browsing, I came across this YouTube channel - Yoga With Adriene. I've never been into yoga, it's a bit slow for my fast-moving brain (which is probably why I *should* be doing it :P). But after trying a few workouts on this channel, I think it's something I'd like to start doing. My only issue is motivation ... at least going to a class forces you to go, whereas finding time at home requires will-power - after all, I'd rather be weaving!!
I started with this one:
After that, I decided to go through the Foundations playlist to get the basics down.
Stay tuned, we'll see how I go! And let me know if you decide to join in ;)
