So I'm seriously overweight and am desperate to get fitter and healthier. I have numerous health problems, fibromyalgia being the main physical one as well as sciatica. My doctor has said that the less pressure on the joints, the less pain I should suffer. I am in constant agony but take a cocktail of medication.
My current "exercise" consists of daily walking to school, shops, family and back to school again aswell as tons of housework as I also have OCD ( diagnosed ).
Any advice? I used to go to Zumba a few years ago and loved it but the class stopped.
The areas I would love to concentrate on are stomach and bum! For now.
I live less than 5 minutes away from the local sports centre and am a Sahm with both dc at school, one primary, one secondary.
Does the leisure centre have a pool? Get a copy of the programme, it's probably online anyway. Have a look out for gentle classes such as pilates or beginners classes that will have lower impact. It's possible that they may have extra "back to exercise" type classes.
