Now, on to aqua aerobics. I do hope that those of you who were still experiencing snow as late as last week are now DONE with the snow, because I don’t want you punching your computer screen in frustration over this post about working out in a pool…

I (like many of you) am in the midst of trying to live a healthier life. I’m not completely overhauling my routine or doing anything crazy, I’m just taking notice of what I’m doing now that could be detrimental to my health and trying to make better choices! One of those choices I have made is to be more active! And I’m not quite sure I’ve found my niche activity. Oh, I walk about 2 miles a day, so that’s not bad. However, I’d love to find something that I would enjoy doing that is good for my fitness level, as well! (Remember, no matter how “domestic” I’m striving to be, I can do more when I take care of ME properly!)

Funny, how I’m looking for something interesting, when the lovely Kaitlin from An Apple Per Day contacted me and wanted to know if I was interested in her doing a guest post on Aqua Aerobics.

And after I read the post, I was even more convinced that this had nothing to do with the picture I had in my mind of my grandma with her gal-pals in their swim caps and skirted bathing suits hopping around in the retirement community pool!

Kaitlin Gardner started AnApplePerDay.com to further her passion for a family friendly, green living lifestyle. She is married to her best friend and lives in Pennsylvania. In her spare time, she loves to go hiking, biking and enjoy nature. She just started her first book about living an eco-friendly, healthy, natural lifestyle.

Let’s see what she has to say about aqua aerobics, shall we?

I did it! I finally got my husband to join me for an aqua aerobics class. He had heard me raving about my classes for several weeks, and kept looking very intrigued. He finally asked one day, “So what is so special about these water workouts?” I could hear the challenge, so I just replied, “Why don’t you go with me one time?” He did!
