My Fitness Routine

The other day I had a couple of bloggers asking what I do to stay fit. Since I don't have a "typical" workout schedule, I figured I'd talk about it here on the blog.

Tuesday: Aerial Silks
Thursday: Skating, Aerial Silks
Friday: Contemporary Dance

I started aerial silks this semester and it's honestly the best workout I have ever done. You use every single muscle of your body, including some you didn't know you had! Initially I was only doing it once a week, but I liked it so much (and had an extra class credit) that I added on a second class. Every Tuesday and Thursday, I'm up in the silks.

Silk is a lot of fun, but it's a lot harder than it looks. There's a ton of skill involved and mats are very important. However, you find that you are stronger physically and mentally than you think, which is really amazing. Silks has taught me that trying out new things is a lot of fun!

I decided to take skating this semester and it's a lot of fun as well. Since there's nothing "natural" about skating, it is great exercise. It's also a great way to make new friends! Some of us girls in the class have gotten pretty close. One thing I have to mention though is that I'm always falling down. I also tend to be good at the pretty tricks rather than the practical manoeuvres necessary for... skating. I skate on Thursday mornings right before aerial silks.

The last form of exercise I do regularly is dance! I have once dance class a week, which isn't really enough. However, I do like it a lot and it's nice to get in the studio again.

What is your workout schedule like?

  1. Aerial skills sounds so cool, and great for your core and everything as well!! Skating and dance also sound absolutely perfect for your body.
