CAMP HUMPHREYS — An aerobithon was held at the Super Gym May 19, with participants dancing, spinning, and jumping their way to better fitness.
“It was great,” said Elvia Palumbo, one of the Zumba instructors for the event. “This was a great way to introduce all of the classes offered in the Super Gym.”
The aerobithon included a warm-up session, followed by Zumba, a stationary bicycle workout and yoga.
“We worked the total body,” said Karen Morton, who organized the aerobithon. “Exercising like this helps you feel better about yourself.”
Morton once weighed 260 pounds, but turned her life around with regular workouts and can now say, “I think I look good for my age.”
Blair Bogle, who also participated in last year’s aerobithon, likewise praised the virtues of diet and exercise.
“Living a healthy life is an everyday thing,” she said.
“I think the energy is high and people are into taking care of their body for a lifetime,” Morton added. “This is a lifestyle for me.”
Also participating was the husband-wife team of Peter and Christi Herring, who have lost a total of 73 pounds this year.
“This was meant for younger people,” Mrs. Herring said with a laugh. “But I like it.”
