Let’s Get Active: Skyrobics

I work out quite regularly. It used to not be like this. If you would have asked me last year how often I exercised I would have said maybe twice a year! But, now with tons of new energy, I love to get my work out on! I take a couple different classes, but today I want to talk about Skyrobics.

Now, many of you might be saying what the hell is Skyrobics? And when I started taking this class last winter I was thinking the same thing! Skyrobics is an aerobics class on trampolines!

Have a look at their website to see if there is one near you.

First, let’s start off with a little bit of background. I have been a big girl forever. Plus size has been my middle name since I could remember. And luckily, I was surrounded by people who loved me no matter what I weighed. I felt pretty good about myself. I knew that I should lose weight, but I never really thought that I could do it. Every weight loss story I ever read made it sound like people overcame such a struggle, and honestly, I wasn’t looking to deal with a struggle. I liked food and I never thought I would be able to do it anyway. Why would I set myself up to fail?Read More »
