Needless to say, I missed out on the athletic gene. I also missed out on the ability to balance and anything resembling coordination. We have a friend who is a police officer. Jokingly, I told him that I was scared that I would fail an alcohol sobriety test just because I am such a clutz. He put me through my paces and, well, I failed. I couldn't walk in a straight line, hold one foot up without falling, etc. He told me that if I ever got pulled over by the police to beg for a breath analyzer test.
After college it became very apparent that I needed to do SOME form of exercise. (Nothing like having rapidly tightening waist bands to prove that point.) I tried Jazzercise and found it annoying. I really hated having to hop up and down the step to the beat of some old song.
Next, I tried yoga. I loved it. Unfortunately, as I've mentioned, I am very uncoordinated. It took me two years before I could do a basic tree pose without falling over.
Then, we moved into the country. No classes were to be found so I started to exercise the more conventional route - walking, weights, etc. It isn't the most fun way to get exercise but it gets the job done.
The first DVD that I am going to review is Bollyrobics. I thought I would try something that sounded super fun and different.
Wish me luck.
