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 :-)

Goals in Life...

I just realized during my Zumba class last night that all my life's goals have been dance-oriented. Well, for as long as I can remember, that is...

1) I wanted to learn how to dance - did that (started September 1988)
2) I wanted to go into dance competitions - did that for about 4 years
3) I wanted to win at least one first-place trophy - did that, and more than one!
4) I wanted to do ballroom/latin dance shows for charities - did that, quite a few and lovin' it!
5) I wanted to find something to replace my yearning for dance since DH started feeling pain in his fingers while turning me in dancing, due to arthritis - did that, found Zumba
6) I wanted to become a Zumba instructor - did that (workshop May 31, 2008) and still going strong with 3 classes per week :-)
7) I wanted to become a ballroom/latin dance teacher and have a class - did that; have 1 class a week

Hmmmmmmmmm - what other goals did I ever have??? Can't seem to remember B.D. (before dance) - LOL!
