OK ~ I have to admit. I was dragging my feet to the Zumba class…I even made my mom come with me. Spinning and Boot Camp are my exercise classes of choice. Why should I waste my time on a silly little dancing class? So, eating my words from my last post, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.
Zumba, with its Latin beats and moves, from Salsa to Meringue, was a blast. I couldn’t think of the last muscle mix class where I was smiling, laughing and shakin’ my ass! Also because we are on the heels of Halloween, she threw in a couple of spooky songs adding to the ridiculously silly hour of sweat.
By the end of the class, a lady in her sixties let everyone know that her calorie-counter thing showed that she had burned 1013 calories. Really!!? Sure, you have to take height, weight and age into consideration; however, damn ~ even though I outweighed her by about twenty pounds, I made up for it in my moves. Although I just turned forty, I can still break it down (just ask me!!) ~ LOL!
By the end of the class, my entire head was soaked, and my calves and quads were killing me. I had an incredible cardio workout, there was a smile on my face and I didn’t even have to do a push-up! I would give Zumba two zesty onions up. Will I do it again? You bet!
