Barely a month ago, I posted about finally trying out SilverSneakers’ live online classes. They run 15 – 45 minutes in categories like strength, cardio, stretching, Zumba, Yoga, breathing, and much more!
If I was amazed then, how easy the classes are to do ( or even leave if & when needed, without disturbing others ), I’m really amazed now!
Some days some classes clock in with 1000+ live participants!
If an instructor has an equipment fail or other problem, SilverSneakers apparently has a backup instructor who can at least fill in impromptu on the spot!
Seated variations are usually cued in standing classes, and frequently quickly modeled for clarity. I esp need that right now ’cause of my plantar fasciitis “thing”, lol!
Cues to breathe ( inhale / exhale ) are frequently spoken with the movements.
Some instructors give wonderful visual cues with given movements, adding meaning and depth, not to mention just sheer plain enjoyment, to simple movements. Almost a visual meditation in movement!
I even heard an instructor cuing participants to hold their weights with a straight – not bent – wrist; one of only a handful of times since Sheila learned about this studying for our fitness certifications via AFAA over a decade ago we’ve ever heard this mentioned ( perky seniors we were, lol! )
My blog post on that issue, how and when to hold one’s wrists straight during exercise, with pics, titled “Hand-Wrist Positions with Prop Work – a Tidbit Post, # 1” – is from June 06, 2011 ☺️ I evidently thought about it well enough to include wrong & right positioning samples!
Guess which one this is below — 😊
I’ll try & post some links next time around to another early yet continuing topic of interest in my life – my early posts re creativity & yoga 🧘♀️
Meanwhile, below, just for more samples 😊 is another day’s beginning classes —
Classes are available during the day Mon-Sun, from early morning to early evening ‘cept weekends when there’s a shorter schedule.
I think what Sheila and I like best ( she does some classes I don’t / can’t ’cause of my foot injury ) is we can pick and choose classes that really appeal to us without driving in Austin traffic! Plus, registering and canceling classes very easily as needed.
What other folks seem to really enjoy, and we also think is great, is the instructors often hold over after class to answer questions submitted via the Chat option on the Zoom screen. Folks from all over the country! Folks wanting to learn, folks wanting to be heathy, folks taking control of their lives! Pretty darn amazing ❤️
Stay well everyone! This is a way you can exercise how you want, when you want, in the privacy of your home, with hundreds of others online!!! 😊 💕
