My parents love exercising. They make it a priority to exercise everyday. This began at a young age, my mom would put in her current aerobic video which happened to be Homestretch with Lee and Ali and we would be running around her while she was exercising.
Later on we would go to the rec center at Snow College and go swimming, play tennis, or racquetball. As we got older we learned how to play tennis and afterwards get a Hogi Yogi ice-cream, because we deserved to gain back those calories that we just burned:) We would walk our beautiful dog Queenie every day, and on Sundays we always take our family walk around the massive huge block in Spanish Fork, UT
We later moved on to the Dana tapes, then to The Firm, which I have inherited from my family and still use today:) I have a feeling though that my siblings an mom and dad have moved on to other exercises, let me explain:
Collette – is one of our best tennis players and is good at going to the gym.
Angela – (me) – Stick to my favorites from the 90s, the Firm tapes which we lovingly call the white, lady and the yellow lady. I also do the elliptical and Homestretch. I am grateful for these videos because they are modest! I have four boys six and under who are very aware when someone isn’t modest, so if they have something less than a modest swimming suit, I get a lot of comments from the peanut gallery…. Also four years ago I did the couch to 5k program which I loved, and hope to do it again soon. I did the first day last week and my knee started hurting, so I will keep you posted on that progress, or not… I also have the Insanity tapes, when I am brave I will attempt those again, but not right now!
Thomas – Is quite the tennis extroadinaire is a runner. He doesn’t like candy, and is the healthiest out of us all, so he will be forever lean!
Daniel – Can play tennis until the cows come home, his endurance is incredible, which is why he can do P 90X with a smile:)
Lisa – the little baben is a slight little thing, but don’t let that fool you, she and Daniel have the best dance moves known to man. Which makes her the perfect candidate of Zumba
My mom – Goes to the gym everyday, does weight lift training, the elliptical, and an amazing walker.
My pops – Reads a lot about exercise and changes his strategy all the time on what is the best way to lose weight. Although his workouts are not as crazy as Daniels, he eats the healthiest, and can walk forever, tries to incorporate exercising while working, and believes in weight training, and the sauna:)
I will save the best for last, Nicole is the wonder of all. She has the most endurance out of all of us and beyond! Every time I exercise with her I end up on the side of the road and she has to go get my dad to come pick me up. She has run a marathon, does tap dancing, wakes up at 5:30 am in the morning to go to exercise classes, barely run the ragnar. Which I didn’t know existed until she told me about it. She also does P 90X and has not met an exercise that she couldn’t do!
