On Getting Fit: Because Strong is the New SkinnyThursday, January 24, 2013 Mary Anne Velasco
I miss going to the gym. I know what you’re thinking and oh no. My aim is not to lose weight at all. I am happy with my figure and weight has never been an issue. I simply want to tone up my body [my stomach – top priority!], be healthier, get fit and be stronger. As they say, strong is the new skinny and I definitely want to be “in”, don’t you?
I miss lifting weights, doing sit-ups, doing aerobics, stretching and performing my daily cardio exercises. Checking my options, I have come to learn that there are a couple of highly recommended fitness studios downtown. With tons of training programs, first-rate exercise machines and certified skilled fitness instructors, it’s definitely tempting to get back to the gym!
Oh. There is this one thing that I have always dreamed of doing --- yoga! A number of my friends are into it and have seen loads of celebrities getting hooked on yoga. I might as well give it a try! There’s no harm in trying. I might like it, for all I know. Plus, I don’t need to order wholesale yoga supplies [http://www.yogadirect.com/]. One yoga block, one yoga mat, one yoga ball and one yoga bag are all I need to get started.
