2015 Physical Activity – Dance/Volleyball/Biking

How do you work out?

This year I did volleyball, pole dancing classes, a hip hop class, a hooping class, a Bollywood class, an Aerial class, multiple Thriller workshops to learn the dance, belly dancing classes, and stretch and flex classes. I also did an afternoon ropes course.

I took the dBMEDx team to Bellevue downtown drop-in volleyball. I went to two miscellaneous volleyball drop ins and 18 Bellevue downtown park drop ins.

I went to 5 Thriller 1.5 hour workshops in preparation for Thrill the World Remdond.

Paul and I did the ropes course in Woodinville for a couple of hours and went out on his boat multiple times this past summer (not much of a workout, I know)

We even went ‘clubbing’ where I danced the night away for an hour and a half or so. (Have I mentioned that dancing is great exercise?)

I tried out a hooping class, an aerial dance class, a hip hop class, and a bollywood class and didn’t get much satisfaction out of any of them for various reasons.

And then I found Spinderella… I took 25 pole classes and 2 stretch & flex classes this past year at the studio. I love all my instructors, especially the owner, who is fabulous in so many ways.

  1. Looks like fun! No wonder you stay so trim. I did Zumba and biking faithfully for most of the year but kind of fell off in the last quarter due to writing commitments and then the holidays. Now I have to work off the beer and cookies. (BTW, I don’t recommend them together!)
