JAN 13, 2016 WAWA: The Fabulous Fifty!

We’ve all heard the old saying….”Fifty is the new….<insert some lower age>…..”.  This week’s WAWA is all about the number 50…but in this case, there’s no lowering of that number!  YES….50 is 50….plain and simple!  We’ll do fifty, 1-minute exercises as our main set this week.  There will be five groups of 10 exercises; 9 are non-running and the 10th will always be jogging around the basketball court for 1 minute!

But, besides all that….I’m happy to have an INDOOR exercise session this week!  Thanks to The Cornwell Center for allowing us some space this week instead of braving the chilly temperatures outdoors!  Several of you are already Cornwell members.  For those who are not, please sign in at the front desk as a free “guest”.  Meet on the basketball court on the lower level after your check in at the main lobby desk.

Please be ready to go at 5:30 am!
