Ditch the Workout...Join the Party!

What is a Zumba fitness class like? It's a very exciting dance party atmosphere full of Latin and international music. You'll forget you're working out with the sexy but simple moves to dance music like Cha Cha, Salsa, reggaeton, rumba and more. Best of all, you don't need any previous dance experience!

It's fun and effective, using interval training combining fast and slow rhythms for an effective aerobic workout while at the same time targetting your legs, abs, glutes and arms.

The workout is basically watch and follow. The moves are repeated often enough for you to catch on and they're not complicated. The routines are repeated week after week with additions every now and then to spice things up even more!

According to the Zumba website, "Zumba combines high energy and motivating music with unique moves and combinations that allow the Zumba participants to dance away their worries. It is based on the principle that a workout should be 'FUN AND EASY TO DO' in order for Zumba participants to stick to the Zumba fitness program to achieve long-term health benefits. Zumba is not only great for the body, but it is also great for the mind. It is a 'feel happy' workout."

Zumba is very infectious and is definitely the latest, most exciting fitness sensation! What a fun way to workout to lose weight or just become a healthier new you - you'll love the results. Be sure to bring your family and friends to be a part of the Zumba Fitness party! Check out the Zumba website here for more info: http://www.zumba.com/. Happy Zumba-ing :-)

Door Mirrors

I've been teaching class without mirrors, therefore I face my students. Had comments that it would be easier if I were facing the wall and that way they could follow my steps with more ease.

Had a brainwave - I already have one door mirror...I could pick up two more at Walmart very cheap and bring them in. Well ever since then, no complaints. I look in the mirrors at my students and they are all (most of them, anyway) following along like a chorus line!!

But I couldn't see their faces!!! So I asked DH if he could raise each mirror about 10" with a piece of plywood at the bottom. It's done - and much better...now I get to see their faces and their expressions as well as their feet - it works - WOOOHOOOOO!!
