is for Zumba
Love, love, love it! A friend of mine just turned me on to it about 2 months ago. According to http://www.zumba.com/
Zumba classes "feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. Before participants know it, they're getting fit and their energy levels are soaring! There's no other fitness class like a Zumba® Fitness-Party. It's easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating!"
What that translates to for me? A great workout, I get to mix my love for dance with an aerobic workout and I don't feel like an idiot that I am still learning the steps!
I go 3-4 times a week and in the last 2 months I can already see a difference in my body! I am more toned, and while I have only lost 3 pounds, I can see my clothes fitting differently.
It makes me feel energized, and I don't feel the need to go with a partner. It is so much fun that it feels more like a party than a workout! I laugh at myself all the time when I cant get the steps........
Most places offer the first class for free. So, there is no excuse to go and try it! They even have water Zumba, if you have a bad back or knees!
