03 Oct AQUASPIN™ STORIES – LAURA GOMEZ
Say hi to Laura – from hating pools to loving working out in the water! Here is her story
1. DID YOU HAVE ANY FEARS BEFORE YOUR FIRST AQUASPIN™ CLASS?
Yes! I’m a big germaphobe and pools are NOT my friend ☺ But I wanted to face my fears and gave it go. I told myself I would stick it out for a month… but then I enjoyed it so much that I started going 3 times a week…
I also feared not being up to the challenge. I thought it would be too tough to follow at first but then I realised you can adjust your pace and challenge yourself gradually. It actually didn’t take long to feel I could follow the pace of the class for the whole 45min
2. WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE TO JOIN US IN THE FIRST PLACE?
As a family, we enjoy riding bikes and do this almost daily. I’m not a fan of running or gyms but I wanted to do some cardio as well as my normal yoga practice. I had heard about aqua spinning so thought, once I got over my dislike of pools, it would be a great way to exercise. I read that it was gentle on the joints and that was a big factor as well.
3. WHAT DO YOU ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT AQUASPIN™?
The team spirit and the fact that each class I do during the week is different so it doesn’t get boring. I also like the fact that they go super fast and I still feel like I’ve had a full workout. I’m now part of the group of regulars and we have great laughs (mostly at our own expense! ☺) with the teachers
4. WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC BENEFITS YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED WORKING OUT WITH AQUASPIN™?
My legs (and arms!) are definitely more toned and I feel a lot stronger physically, I have more resilience so I can spin faster and longer than I expected. I know it’s a good workout because I’m so tired by the afternoon, yet my joints don’t ache as they do when I go for a good run.
5. IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIAL YOU GOT SPINNING WITH US YOU WERE NOT EXPECTING WHEN YOU FIRST JOINED?
I didn’t expect I was going to have so much fun doing it or that I was going to get over my fear of germs in pools!
6. WOULD YOU RECOMMEND AQUASPIN™ TO OTHER PEOPLE?
Definitely! I have done… they just need a little push at the right time!
