Your mom sounds like some of the long-term members who I try and keep up with, not realizing I was as competitive as I am.

I work out on my own three days a week and in a group fitness class the other three days. Sunday is my day of rest. When I'm taking a spin cycle class, I watch the legs of the other riders and I'll start off by matching my speed to someone with similar ability and determination and then halfway through, I look for legs in the mirror that are working faster and harder than mine and I step it up a notch. If the instructo plays music that is similar to my style, I work out much better than when they play other types of music.

There's a woman a bit older than your mom that I see nearly every day and she walks the treadmill while she reads magazines. She's observed a few of the classes I was leading and said she loved my music and some of it she used to hear when she was doing aerobic classes back in the early 90's. I worked out without my music twice because I didn't realize the battery needed to be recharged. It wasn't as good of a workout as usual.

I know what you're saying about the volume being too loud to hear your tunes from your MP3 player. My volume must be pretty loud because a guy on the arc machine next to mine asked, "you're working out to Jambalaya on the Bayou? You're going to hurt." Guess my volume is louder than I realized. Hope I don't wind up with hearing problems down the road.
