Class Act: P.E. for Adults

Remember P.E.? Playing games in the middle of the school day was always so much fun. The options were endless but Dodgeball, Floor Hockey, Red Rover, Run Alligator Run, and Capture the Flag topped my list of favorites. One thing was for sure though, I always worked up a sweat.

Now, some adults are getting in on the action by joining P.E. for grown ups. What a better way to meet people, burn calories, and have a good time? Since you'll be playing games the whole time, you'll hardly even notice the workout you're getting in. If you tend to be super competitive, much like myself, putting your husband on the opposite team does wonders for your drive and motivation. Classes like Urban Recess in Portland, OR and Old School P.E. in Newport, NH are popping up all over the country — and are booked to capacity. Check your local rec center and/or gym to find out if there are any physical education classes in your area.
