Splish Splash

Water workouts making waves—
Click Here for Water Aerobics

Zumba, kickboxing, yoga.
Mix it up; make it fun; take
your workout to the water.

The pumping sound track
keeps you moving.
The routine provides
good cross-training.

Your weight, supported,
makes the cardio easier.
You’re moving against
the resistance of the water.

At the Swim Academy—
A Pilates pool party.

I loved working out in the pool, first at my home pool, and later at a sports club pool. It is great exercise.  I sold my house with the pool, and I can’t afford the club membership anymore.

I’m especially pleased that I was able to use an end-rhyme scheme through the entire poem.  Good meter, too.  It is really hard to do this when I can only use the words in the news story without changing their order.  This is the first time I’ve done it.
