This morning I managed to go to the gym and do a Body Pump class which is a light weights class set to different music tracks. It was fun and half way through, my muscle memory started to kick in. I'd last done the class some 4-5 years back so I declared myself as a beginner to the instructor so she wouldn't wonder why I was slow.
It felt good. I'm hoping to supplement my aikido with general keep fit activities this year and that was the start of it on the first day of the new year. It'll also help as i think this year I will have more work related interruptions to my aikido so the Body Pump, pilates and yoga classes I can do at the gym will help me mantain muscle tone and fitness levels on non-aikido days or days when I can't make it to aikido.
