This past June I applied for a City of Coquitlam Access One card pass. You pay $10 a year and it’s sooooo worth it! You get free drop ins unlimited and two free classes a year. I’ve been working out in the gym three times a week and Aquafit twice a week. I started as a beginner but am now an Aquafit plus member. It’s a great and speedy challenge! I’m doing aerobics once a week, too. It’s a low impact practice with music, weights, stretching, cardio and warm up/warm down. I really enjoy doing that. I’ve met some great people who are now friends. We chat together and I feel part of the group, not an outsider. I always get asked how I’m doing, given kind reminders if I need to do something differently, and the instructors are great! The instructors remind me to drink lots of water, go my level and have fun!!

For everyone but especially as I’m getting older, I see the importance of working out. My body, muscles and joints need to have this support of working out. All my doctors are suggesting it. I would suggest 100% that everyone connects to their Rec Centers. It’s so worth it especially on cold rainy days to feel warm and fit! In September, I start my line dancing class. I’m excited to dress up country style and dance it up! Yeehaw! In the future I’m excited to take an art class and more line dancing classes.

Just do it. It’s the best $10 you’ll spend all year. You’ll feel great!!
