    chatting thinking she is my age, wow she said she is 67 being working out 15 yrs; she doesn't even look 40! she asked what I am studying as major, ( hinting that I look in my twenties) lol, that makes my day better than getting hit on by a guy, we instantly became friends

    My Escape.

    When I'm not running a class (I work as a gym instructor for Fernwood Gym) I love to work out as a way of escaping. I love going into the zone and just letting it all go, all the tension, stress, anger, bitterness, fear, resentment, every single negative emotion just seems to...

    Ooooo! Air Climber

    It's like a stair climber but it uses air (google if you are concerned) anyway, I was doing it in my bedroom and I love it. Just pop the earphones in for 30 minutes - an hour; and you won't even really notice you are working out.

    5 Nights A Week

    It feels good! Both immediately and long term, the buzz; runner's high, or lifter's high in this case, and the confidence and self esteem from looking after yourself.

    My Self-Esteem & My Work-Outs Are Bestfriends

    I find working out to be my stress relief. It also has cause my upper torso to become physically strong to withstand anything that is brought upon me. I've been working on my abs for about half a year now & i must say it has played a part in boosting my self-esteem.

    Working out releases feel good hormones.

    If it's a routine to exercise everyday, then do your best to exercise everyday. If you don't exercise for a few days in a row, you will be tired the whole day. Don't break you routine (even though everyone does at some point).
