    Although not a professional, I trained as a dancer for over 30 years. In addition, for many years I was a cyclist, racewalker and trained with weights. I believe my athletic background has been both a blessing and a curse.  A blessing, because I firmly believe I have developed some muscle memory that has helped me with my balance and stamina.  A curse because I realize how much I have lost.
