Name: Cynthia
Age: 69
Location: Idaho
Activity: Walking, Biking, Aerobics

I have been active in many sports all my life. I needed, however, something to help me become active on a daily schedule. I joined an hour-long exercise class that is both a comprehensive workout and fun! The great instructor and new friends strengthen my resolve to attend five times a week. I have benefited in increased strength, balance, and energy. I have lost weight (a ten-pound requirement from my doctor). The weight loss boosted my mental health. I think the dance aerobic music is great! Also, I ride my bike and do yard work. Twice a week, my husband and I walk two miles at the mall. Use it or lose it has become my lifestyle!
