LuAnn’s fitness philosophy is: Exercise! Never miss more than two days in a row and you’ll be a regular exerciser for life. Find the exercise you love! For her, motivation comes from exercising to music in a group class. It provides her body with a variety. She believes in adapting to the changes in your body as you age in order to enjoy exercise for the rest of your life.
