I signed up at a health and fitness center near the office. I was stoked by the dancing lessons they offer but lately, detox boxing caught my fancy, too. However, one thing I have tried twice and miserably failed in was tissu or aerial silk. Simply put, I cannot lift myself.
The trainer told me it’s not about my weight entirely. True, for there are women larger than me who can glide smoothly up, up, and away using suspended silk cloths.
I am not strong. There lies the big difference.
In 2016, I am going to make it a goal: basically make my arms and my core strong enough to lift myself. The aerial silk routines look so fun to do, if only I can do it. Then afterwards, I can probably dabble into pole dancing as well.
Remember: strong, not thin.
If I lose weight in the process, then that’s a bonus.
