Piggybacking on my last blog post--The Ole Back Burner--this week I'm still not writing, but I "am" attending the International Water Fitness Convention in Palm Harbor, Florida. Every year, hundreds of water fitness instructors get together for five days of workshops, lectures, master classes, and fellowship in sunny Florida.
In case you didn't know, I'm not only a fiction writer, but I'm also a Fitness Specialist, and water fitness is not only one of the modalities I teach, but one of my favorite ways to workout. I've also written for AKWA Magazine and am a new Continuing Education Provider for AEA--the Aquatic Exercise Association.
The photo above was made right before my very first AcquaPole class, a new, highly innovative gymnastic water fitness class utilizing a stainless steel pole as a piece of equipment. I haven't had so much fun since I first discovered Zumba back in 2008.
So, writer, fitness instructor/CEC provider, and online retailer . . . I'm a jack of all trades (or in my case, a Jackie of all trades). And you never know where or when my real life adventures will show up in my writing.
