Why Zumba?

I hate working out! It’s Boring. But I need to exercise. I want to stay in shape, burn off all that junk food I eat, keep my heart healthy.
“Ditch the workout, Join the party!” is the slogan for Zumba. I’ve become a Zumba junkie – I love it and go to classes several times per week. Zumba is a high-energy aerobic fitness class based on latin and hip-hop dance moves. The music is great – salsa, meringue, samba, hip-hop at party volume levels. Each instructor brings their own style and favorite songs. It’s fun and I sweat off the calories like crazy.
Are you uncoordinated? No worries, after a couple of classes you will stop worrying about it. Like all group exercise classes, it seems to be mostly women. Men are definitely welcome, and guys, being in a room full of dancing women isn’t all bad.
I’ve found a way to stay in shape, have fun, and be able to lift up my kids for another few years. What’s yours?
