Made it all the way through. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Now my plan is to wake up at 5 am tomorrow and do it again. I'm working on trying to work out early in the morning and later in the evening at Lifetime Fitness. Also if I make a morning workout and don't make the evening at least I got moving. Have to stay motivated.
I knew there was a reason I've never done this type of work out. Played football, baseball and ran track and cross country when I was much younger. Continued running until I blew out a knee while skiing that's never quite recovered. Played mens FP softball into my late 30's (dealt with a heart attack & heart bypass surgery @ 33). Hand eye coordination couldn't keep up so I switched to Slow Pitch into my 50's (went through re-hab from 2nd heart attack & bypass surgery @44). Swimming, stationary bike and walking are now my cardiac training.
We're 66 now (my DW and I) and I've never been known to be able to track my two left feet in dancing. Thankfully I did this video at home, but with my DW watching. She got her daily cardio by laughing hysterically at my inability to move backward tap, clap, squat or reach my hands over my head in a coordinated manner (Give me those old Army calisthenics and I am ON them, but that's just one exercise movement at a time until half the class can't do the exercises correctly).
I was perspiring at the end, but I don't know if it was just the exercise or the combination of exercise and frustration.
I challenged my DW to try it and she was huffing at the end, but other than a couple of fumbled steps, her rhythm was just fine.
I might try this again if I recover from the humiliation I felt. Or not.
This video is AWESOME, Coach Nicole! Not too difficult for us 57 yos!!! But I was able to finish - got a little sweat going and will definitely save to Favorites. I especially like the ease into transistions..... Perfect!
