Okay It's Not Synchronized Swimming. . .

Okay,

It's Not

Synchronized Swimming...

 

One of my walking routes takes me by a gym.  Indoor gyms are not currently permissible in Los Angeles County so this particular business which is in a large office complex has moved outside utilizing their nice corner location. 

 

Equipment has been relocated from the facility so this puts the participants on "stage" performing to passersby.  Accompanied by music and  various directions by instructors, it has a choreographed feel - well at least choreography in progress. 

 

Although the show does not always result in a uniform appearance because of skill levels and such, the scene made me think of synchronized swimming nonetheless.  

 

Everyone learns differently, right? It's not exactly achieved simultaneously but the result seems fun and beneficial.  On many levels.

 

It also made me think of how education, as a  whole, is always adapting too.  While some learn best by the book.  Others excel by practice and demonstration.  Trial and error at times.  There are those who utilize a little bit of this and some of that too.  A combination.  Switching back-and-forth with different strategies. 

 

It's interesting, to me, to see how things adapt.  And grow.  And after all, you may not realize what you might learn while out and about.  That's a good thing.  A very good thing in my opinion.  Whether it's synchronized swimming, surviviving/thriving in the real world or in ActiveRainLand it's all about finding what works best for each of us and our goals.  

 

And no, don't expect to find me practicing any synchronized swimming routines.  In water or on land.

Morning Michael, although indoor dining/exercising are not allowed, having them outdoors is allowed.   Still would not like to be "on display".

It is interesting to see how many businesses have modified their operations to comply with the current regulations.

Michael, here is one more thing we have in common, it would be a cold day in hell if you found me going to a gym or synchronized swimming.... just to be clear when I see events similar to what you described I take a quick look and speed by the event:))Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. - well, the "sighting" of this particular event occurred during a walk so I'm not so sure if "speeding by" would be an appropriate description for me.

Endre Barath, Jr. - what's more old school than walking?  I have been doing for many decades since I first started doddering about when I was quite young.  

Although a trip to Vroman's sounds nice, I don't think I will be in that area tomorrow afternoon.  If you go, enjoy. . . small businesses need our support.

Michael maybe we need to plan the next meeting with more notice.... after all we did short notice Vroman's meet up before, I totally understand... I was hoping to entice you to contribute to Small Business $$ at Vroman's:)) Endre

Hi Michael, you remind me to hit the trails more. I'm not much of group or indoor exerciser - I'm much more at home walking or running a dirt path.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I can certainly understand a solitary pursuit.   And it can involve the physical or the mental.

Endre Barath, Jr. - short notice works at times as we both have "learned" over the years.  Enjoy your shopping excursion and good reading.  Always.

I don't do well in group learning situations. I took a yoga class once and it wasn't pretty. I did very well though with private instruction.

Sharon Tara - I tend to pick and choose, kinda like one from column A and one from column B.  Mixed it up a bit.

Ok I'm cracking up at Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS comment about being arrested if he exersized outside! And now I see Debe Maxwell, CRS is in the same boat as Paul!  I recently tried out a 'movement' place and I haven' gone back. I don't like being surrouned by all kinds of people while trying to stretch out.  That's why hiking in the preserve fit sme perfectly. I could meander along any path I wanted for however long I wanted.  Thanks for the hike today Michael Jacobs !!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker - I know you and Brian England are part of a semi-formal AR Hike Squad though I don't ever recall hearing of a mountain sighting of you two. You Arizonans are an independent group at times - especially when you have a mission to achieve.
