A Fun Warm-Up Game for Gym Class found on the Internet…. If somebody knows where this originated, please post below… I simply saved the screen capture for future use… and now, I will use it when I am next a Gym Teacher!
… And I am Excited.
That’s not to say I won’t miss Summer Holidays because they were Awesome!
This summer, I have climbed many of the world’s famous monuments with MeYou Health’s Monumental App. for iphone, http://monumental.meyouhealth.com/…
With Monumental, you can explore the monuments of the world, as you seek out and climb stairs in the real one. This iPhone game uses the internal accelerometer to track your stair climbing. When you reach the top of a monument, check out the view and collect souvenirs. EVERY STEP MATTERS:
This summer, I have unlocked my fitness/exercise potential. I have been a sporadic exercise-doer this since I was 17 years old. That Summer – I was Super Skinny, I might point out, though I thought I was a huge, gross fatty, and boy, could my 34 year old self kick that young stupid skinny cow’s butt right now – anyway, I discovered Cindy Crawford’s First Workout Video, on VHS! I did that video each and everyday that Summer. Why? Because I enjoyed doing the video; I enjoyed the work out. Then, there was the Roller Blading phase, that lasted about a Summer and the Elliptical Trainer Phase that lasted about the first few months after that one Christmas that I got it. And, the Gym that I visited sporadically for a year.
It seems that my Challenge is now to continue with the Exercise Routine; to focus on how good it actually makes me feel, and not to mention the sense of accomplishment I feel for having committed to Exercise. The other things I have been doing is Zumba – Feel the Music! It truly is a fun workout that doesn’t even seem like work, well, except for all the sweat!
The great thing about running up and down the stairs, aside from it being a FREE workout, is the Nature – birds and bugs and neighbourhood cats, AND a Stair Climbing Coach, thanks Mr. Cicada. Though, I totally woulda gone a whole lot faster if he had chased me!
