Those were the days…

Filed under: — stan @ 9:32 pm

So today I saw this article about how people who did a lot of aerobics back in the ’80s are all suffering from various overuse injuries caused by all the jumping and such. That’s kind of sad. I worked as an aerobics instructor from 1987 to 1991, and I thought it was great fun. I did classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings after work. It was my ‘hobby job’. But I only did two classes a week. So I didn’t overdo it. On the weekends, I rode my bike, so I was getting a lot of exercise back then, but not that much of it was involving jumping and running.

Anyway, I thought this was kind of a sad article. We’re all getting old:

Whatever Happened to Jane Fonda in Tights?

Besides, I’ll always have fond memories of aerobics, since that’s where I met my wife. Cathy and I both had the same favorite instructor, so that’s how we met.

    Stan, I used to do aerobics, too. I don’t think that’s what torpedo’d my knees, though . . . it was being too heavy for too many years. My knees are actually better now than they were when I was fat and sedentary. Well, except for my right one, at the moment.

    I did so enjoy aerobics classes. Maybe someday I’ll take a class or two at my gym, for old time’s sake.
