M/TS – Water Aerobics

Cardio Water Aerobics Workout - fit2b.com

I taught “aquarobics” for several years, including my pregnancy and recovery with my son. I’d set him in his carseat on the pool deck, and the class participants would coo and croon to him whenever they went by. It was so fun to teach, but I admit I was a bit stumped to get repeated […]

E/TS – Squat Challenge

Improve the depth of your squat for a stronger core and pelvic floor - fit2b.com

For most of my early group fitness career, I accepted the fitness myth that squatting would hurt the knees if the hips went lower than the knee.
