In fact its the only class I have ever taken. I liked it so much I took the next class. I ended up starting off with an hour of aqua aerobics and an hour of deep water jogging. I have never worked out for more than an hour. I had an awesome time and I'm planning to go back tomorrow morning.

Now I'm starving! I'm eating my lunch as I type.

I was the youngest person there. The next youngest person was at least 25-30 years older than me. The ladies and gents teased me about being a "young thing thats in great shape". I made me feel good to hear that. No one's ever told me that I'm in great shape. lol

I love aqua class. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I always find I'm starving afterward! Have fun! Our pool closes at the end of September for the winter and I'm going to miss Aquafit.

I love swimming so I know I would love that class but my gym doesnt have a pool! And the college that I attend has a pool but no classes:)

That is the cutest thing ever, you fit young thing!

Congrats on working out for so long. That's a great accomplishment. :) I've never tried an aqua class even though they have them at my gym (ymca) but you have definitely peeked my interest. I'll have to check it out. Thanks! :hug:

After it was over I wanted to keep swimming but I was afraid I might over do it and not be able to exercise tomorrow. I wonder how many calories I burned. ;)

Aqua aerobics have to be one of my favorite workouts, its like a relaxing swim mixed with a butt busting workout. It's a shame the gym I belong to now doesn't have a pool :( Enjoy your workouts!!

Woah! I'm getting a massive headache now. I hope it's not related to exercising for too long. I'm going to go drink a big glass of water.

being in the pool dehydrates you QUICKLY. I always down at least a liter right after my swim.

Water aerobics is fun. I used to take classes with my friend when we were in HS at our local community college. We were the youngest by far. I was always starving by the end.

i want to do it too. I just dont have time. I have two jobs, and never any free time.

But i always feel wonderful after, and i also need to drink a lot of water after.

Wake up today feeling horrible and I still have a headache! I'm drinking my coffee now and waiting for DD to get finished eating breakfast so I can take her to school. I really don't want to go to the aqua class with the way that I'm feeling but I need to do it. I had such a good time yesterday and from what I hear its really good exercise. (this is me talking myself into going) I'll feel better after coffee and some breakfast. Then this horrible feeling I have now wont even be remembered.

Good for you! I've been thinking of joining and adding that class to my week with Jazzercise. I think I will now!

I spent one hour and 15 minutes treading water in my friends pool yesterday while my son splashed about. I really went at it, treading hard. I found last night I was starving and grazing all night. I said to my husband "what's wrong with me? This is crazy!". Now I know it is normal and will plan my calories throughout a swim day differently.
