Guest blog: I can't stress enough how much I HATE exercise
I don't think anyone, except my close family, can truly understand what a miracle it is that I'm voluntarily doing regular exercise.
I can't stress enough how much I HATE exercise. I walk if I have to and swim on holiday if the water is warm enough. That's it.
To me, going to a gym sounds like torture. So to find a class that I will go to each week, sometimes twice a week now, really is a miracle.
I've always loved music and dancing but am not very coordinated so dance classes have never appealed.
When a group from work suggested we try out a local Clubbercise class I thought I'd give it a go - a dance exercise class with glow sticks in the dark intrigued me.
I loved it. I went home that evening and surprised my husband and kids by saying I liked it and wanted to go again.
I'm still not very coordinated but I'm getting better.
It doesn't matter if you're fit or not, young or old, as long as you're moving and sweating who cares?
You're encouraged at whatever level you can do. Go for it. Give it a try. It's like being 21 again, on holiday in Ibiza but without the hangover. Brilliant fun!
