Lisa Likes Exercising
Lisa goes to the gym every Thursday. She likes group fitness classes and her favourite is aerobics. It’s always so exhausting and the instructor is full of energy. When everyone is tired and sweaty, she yells “Arms up over your head and put your hands together, that’s right, now bend your knees and hold 1 • 2 • 3.”
At first, Lisa had terribly sore muscles after class – especially her thighs – but she’s used to it now. Since she started going to the gym she also has less back pain, her muscles are stronger and she feels fit and healthy. She likes exercising.
It’s a different story for Lawrence. His belly is too fat and he’d like to lose some weight. The problem is that he hates exercising! Bridgette has trouble too. Her legs are stiff and it’s especially difficult for her to bring her knee to her chest. She doesn’t like that stretch at all. “Don’t let the fatigue take hold. Just 5 more minutes. Let’s run some laps in the gym. Don’t forget to bring your heels right up to your bottom. Hop, hop, hop.”
By the end of the class, everyone is out of breath and sweat is dripping from Lawrence’s forehead. The class is over for this week and everyone is exhausted.
