I love the YMCA cardio classes with Aisha. I hated to miss this class and so excised when I came back. However, the military has said it was time for me to go. Aisha I will miss your classes, the awesome choreography, music and the energy you bring. When I come back I will definitely be back in your class front and center.
Three rings were lost at pool area last Friday. Please let me know if you found them or know who did. One was a gift I gave my daughter for her sweet 16. Another she received from her grandmother and one from her boyfriend. Someone picked them up. Any help appreciated.
