zumba



If I am able to walk tomorrow and if my thighs and butt decide to speak to me again I am totally doing the tuesday morning zumba class every week.

What is zumba??

According to Wikipedia "Inspired by Latin dance and music, Zumba uses a variety of styles in its routines, including cumbia, merengue, salsa, reggaeton, hip-hop, pop, mambo, rumba, flamenco, and calypso and Salsaton. Music selections include both fast and slow rhythms to help tone and sculpt the body."

The classes I have attended have even gone as far as including bollywood style moves as well. It is so fun, the time flies and you are dancing and having an aerobics party! There are women there of every size, shape and age. Some think they are strippers. Some(like me) kind of stand in the back and pray we dont have an infarction. But once we start dancing there is no judgement. ONly waving, and cha cha and hopping around like crazy people, sweat flying everywhere,

This morning was really great. She did some weights and stretching and a LOT of thigh and butt work and lots of arm work.(which is really what I need)

It was fun. I was sweating. I could fell the burn...BAD.(Especially during the tootsie roll song. Holy Cow.)

So YAY zumba. This is one class I REALLY enjoy.
