I've been teaching 3 to 4 classes a week for the past year. Before that I did indoor cycling for about 4 years, and thought, what the heck. I took my AFAA Group Exercise certification during an Apex weekend in Detroit last year with about 60 people who looked half my age. I wondered what in the hell I thought I was doing, but when I passed, then was hired as a sub then a regular instructor it was quite a rush. I've taken the AFAA indoor cycling workshop and also an "in gym" certification. I taught a class on my 57th birthday and brought presents for everyone in my class (water bottles).
Well, I guess I'm gushing. I love my classes, my students, and my gym and its managers for giving me the encouragement to follow through.
And then I found Pedal-On.com and found a wonderful resource. Thanks to all of you!
Welcome, Libsterspinner, glad you found our little corner of cyberspace. I'm also on the right side of the big 50 and am in better condition today than I was 20 years ago. Yay us!

Thanks for your kind words. Now, how do you get those great graphics by your names?
Are you coming to the Detroit AFAA APEX this year???????????
I'll be there on Saturday for kickboxing certification. I live about 2 hours west of the conference.
I won't be there this year. I was going to go for the cycling workshop but took it in May. Have you been to that venue before?
