If You Don’t Move To The Music Try Continuum To Improve Your Sport


Hi folks,

Shadow under a tree in Torrevieja, Spain. Don't live in the shadows of your life, escape.

Shadow under a tree in Torrevieja, Spain. Don't live in the shadows of your life, liberate yourself.

I hate to say it, but we are all highly conditioned by our childhoods until we escape and let it go, and finally take responsibility for our lives. A slap or a compliment makes all the difference between poor self-esteem and happy dancing. I spent most of my life unable to enjoy the dance, but thanks to Deb sending me to Continuum lessons with Rebecca I now move to the music. It’s irresistible, whereas before I could not understand why people seemed so happy dancing.

When it comes to triathlons, I would like to suggest that dancing your swim, bike or run (even the transitions) is a good way to go. I explore the dance as I try to chase Rick down in the pool (I’ll get him one day!), and sometimes I feel as though the water is dancing with me and the swim is effortless thanks to Continuum. The same goes for the bike and the run, and especially for cooking. What could be better than making a meal whilst dancing to the music of life? Thanks Deb and Rebecca.

If you decide to follow this path, take a look at my first Continuum lesson and decide whether you are really ready. I was, thank goodness!
