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 :-)

I'm so going to miss summer!

I had so much fun practicing for my Zumba classes outside in the backyard this summer!

We have the lake (actually we're on a bay going into the lake) in our backyard and every afternoon (weather permitting) I would go out with my boombox and practice either on the lawn (had to stop, I was destroying Hubby's grass!) or on the cement sidewalk that runs along the waterfront.

Practiced out there for an hour much to the amusement (amazement?) of fishermen, waterskiers, pleasure boaters, swimmers and a couple of men who came in to give an estimate on the replacement of the septic tank! Had to explain myself a few times that I am an aerobic fitness instructor (in case they hadn't heard of Zumba) and I'm practicing so they didn't think I was a nutcase, dancing by myself - LOL!

Actually one of the neighbors down the street came by for a visit and I was in the middle of one of my outdoor practice sessions. He looked at me and said, "Oh, Zumba?" - what???? (he knows...I thought to myself!). His girlfriend's friend told them about the Zumba Fitness class I was bringing to Saint-Anicet - that's how he knew!

Don't think I'll be out there practicing in the snow...waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :-(
