I've been wanting to try Zumba for awhile now after hearing how much fun and how great of a workout it is. Since my gym doesn't have classes, I went to the Zumba website to search for a class in my area. I found one just 3 1/2 miles from here, so I couldn't resist.
"That was not a workout, that was a dance party!" These were my words to Lisa on our way back to our cars after class, despite the fact that I was sweaty, out of breath and felt that my heart along with every other muscle in my body had been well and truly worked out.
A combination of hip-hop, Latin and African tribal rhythms, the Zumba moves are basically funked-up versions of those neon spandex 1980's aerobics classes only fun and easy and set to great music. You don't need to know how to dance, you just follow along, laugh and have a great time.
It's part of the Self Goal challenge, too, so that's a bonus.
Dance Your A-- Off!Make time fly and flab fade away with a fun exercise class.
Skip the cardio machines and shake things up (along with your booty) by taking a Zumba, hip-hop or other dance class at your gym. Dancing scorches 7 calories per minute and is such a blast that the minutes speed by.
I'm already looking forward to the next class. So get to the Zumba search portal stat to find a class in your area. You will not be sorry.
