Aspria Avenue Louise: My Muscle Awakening!

Ages since I haven’t done any sport

A few days after my Shiatsu massage, I go to the locker room (picture 3). When I arrive at the studio (picture 1), I’m 5 minutes late and the famous Aerotonique session has already started! Azziz replaces David which is the usual coach. Honestly when Antoine Houssière, the Well-Being Manager of the Aspria Avenue Louise offered me this group course, I didn’t really understand (or try to understand) what it was! I just kept in mind it was dynamic!    

From the beginning, I jump and steps to-side-behind-acceleration… very rhythmic cardio! Everyone follows, at first I had trouble to coordinate sequences. When we started to use the ball and the carpet, I understood it’s going to hurt! I can’t exercise such as pumps on one arm (frankly, what an idea! LOL!). But I try, I try everything! Occasionally Azziz checks and corrects our postures. His good humor is contagious and motivating.    

At the end of the course I recognize some moves borrowed from the Sun Salutation (Yoga, Tai Chi). I’m extremely tired and sweating, but smiling! I decide to go for a swim in the pool to soothe muscles, plus a bit of hammam, sauna and jacuzzi (picture 2). Then I go straight to bed, yes! The next day, aches all over my body but I “manage” them (LOL!). And the day after that, the aches are more painful. Even laughing hurts my abs, but I feel more positive and highly recommend this trainning! Conclusion I had to postpone my individual coaching session! To be continued …
