    Have any of you tried Zoom for exercise?

    I have been exercising religiously for 4 years to help prevent a recurrence. For the last year, I've been going to a gym that offers Silver Sneakers. But with the pandemic, I'm unwilling to go back in person with COVID-19 running rampant in Georgia.

    The gym is Zooming the Silver Sneakers class Monday - Friday. I tried it, and it definitely motivates me to get in my 150 minutes of recommended weekly exercise.

    Silver Sneakers also zooms exercise from their Facebook page. What about all of you? How are exercising? Would you consider trying Zoom?

      @Lynne-I-Am, do you still go to your gym? Do you think someone at your gym would be gracious enough to give you the number or help you get re-enrolled. Maybe its somewhere in your membership information. Or maybe AARP could help you get the number. My guess it that maybe because you were signed up before, it won't let you sign up again because perhaps the program thinks you are a scammer (not saying you ARE). Surely there is someone that can help you access this. Maybe even someone with your doctors office that monitors insurance and eligibility.

      I feel very fortunate that our community pool is open, by appointment, and only 4 people at a time. I don't swim well but really enjoy the weightlessness of the pool and it's kindness on my body and joints. If not for the pool, I probably would turn to zoom since walking in 95 degree heat and humidity in NC is just too much!

      I have been doing some pt for my shoulder, after my neck surgery this past April. So I decided I kind of liked doing the exercises so I decided to try some chair exercises on line. I googled and basically pulled stuff up on my phone. I told my sister not to laugh but I got a pretty good workout.
