For the love of Zumba

Zumba Fitness Total Body Transformation System DVD Set

Recently I’ve been  hearing about this new type of exercise called Zumba.  I became interested in taking these classes after reading some friends Facebook statuses about how excited they were to be going to ZUMBA that night.   I had to know what this was because quite a few people seemed to be going to this one class.  The consensus was, “At Zumba, you basically just dance for an hour straight.”  A friend explained that Zumba is a mixture of different types of dance.   I was comprised of mainly Latin dance but you will find some Country, hip-hop, classic, African, Broadway mixed with aerobics.
I must admit I was nervous about taking the Zumba class.  Gym classes seem soo intimidating sometimes.  As I walked into Dragonfly Living Arts ( I saw an older woman who was chatting with a friend of mine at the front desk telling her about how Pilates really made her feel stretched out and was urging my friend to take the bellydancing classes.  At this point I was waiting for the ZUMBA enthusiasts to show up and show me how inadequate for ZUMBA I really was.  Fortunately for me some more friends showed up and as we were discussing how to look glamorous while falling on our faces or stepping on someone elses toes.   I began to look at the rest of the classes participants and realized maybe this class wouldn’t be soo intimidating after all.  The ladies that were doing ZUMBA were all ages, shapes and sizes no intimidation and even the ZUMBA instructor made you feel relaxed.  This was certainly going to be an experience!
Once the hour was up I was exhausted but I had a great time! There were no people singeled out or instructions given. A routine was preformed for every song to work out specific sections and keep your heart rate up.  No one was any better than the other and even the instructor missed a few steps.  I was fully worked out and it felt good! Even the next morning I wasn’t in pain or tired.  Over all ZUMBA was a good time and I intend to keep up with my classes and see if I can pick up any good dance moves!!, Inc
