Get ready to Zumba..........

Last night I was at the gym and one of the ladies I take bodypump with was their and we were talking about our workouts and our goals. She was telling me about a class she takes right before bodypump called Zumba. I have to say just the word intrigue me enough to ask her what the class is about - she said that it is sort of a dance class - well as you all know I am so not coordinated and just the thought of dancing - not so much. She then went on to tell me that when she started the class she was not sure either but giving it a chance was well worth it.. She invited me to come with her this Monday and check it out and I think I will (it can't hurt right?). Below is a description of the class and what to expect:

Zumba is a style of intense dance-aerobics workout with pulsating latin music. The 60-minute program incorporates footwork and body movements from flamenco, salsa and other dances. Participants pump their legs, windmill their arms, gyrate their hips, clap their hands, dip, slide and spin — all to a frenzied beat that leaves them with flushed cheeks and dripping in sweat.




Anything that will get me up and moving I will give a try. Have any of you tried Zumba and what was your experience?

One of my co-workers does a Zumba class occasionally and says it's really good! She thinks the teacher is too perky, that's why she doesn't go all the time, but the class itself is good. Have fun!

Good for you for trying something new! I've never tried Zumba myself...I'm not much of a dancer. But I've heard from plenty of people who are TOTAL non-dancers that tried it out and had fun. GO FOR IT!!! I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes. :)

I took one once and really liked it. It was fun to do something different, you know? I'm a bit uncoordinated at times, too... but I just pretended not to be. :) Can't wait to hear how you like it!
