Last Friday to try a different approach to exercise each week. Many readers offered their most excellent suggestions — thank you so much. My to-do list is long!
Sunday night, my neighbor texted, inviting me to try one of the two classes she planned on attending Monday down at .
I confess I was intimidated by the names: Body Pump and Body Attack.
"We can either do Body Pump from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. or Body Attack from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Or both. I will probably do both," she wrote.
She's in good shape. She runs half-marathons and whatnot.
"What is the difference between Body Attack and Body Pump?" I wrote back, nervous.
Turns out Attack is cardio and Pump is weights. In any case, scheduling did not permit — this whole business of minding Alameda Patch and all — and so I did not go with her. But stay tuned. I would like to try one or both of these classes.
Many of your suggestions were easy ones, requiring no user fee or special clothing or new nomenclature.

It was a good place to start.
