Yes, yes, yes. I used to take step aerobic classes and was always the one left facing the wrong way, or couldn't keep up with the changing steps. I'm pretty clumsy too; always falling down stairs. I actually fell out of my (flat) shoe today and off the kerb, no idea how I managed that one.
I actually really like skating, boxing-based exercise and yoga, but the yoga I take at my own pace and it's slow Iyengar-style anyway, not this fast-paced fling-yourself-into-asanas that celebrities always seem to make popular. My favourite way to exercise is circuits on the weight machines or free weights. No pressure, no stupid steps to memorize, just pure form and reps. And I gave up skating as soon as it started to get complicated with jumps and such. That was just asking for injury!
