Since my surgery I’ve known that I really need to start incorporating exercise but I really hate going to a packed stinky gym to use a treadmill like a hamster in a wheel. Know that I do have a gym membership and I do go about twice a week before work to try and avoid most of the other hamsters.
I have also found a free exercise class that I’m completely in love with (thanks to work offering it). Zumba! Ok, to try and explain Zumba it is like Jazzersize on Latin crack. Take a look for yourself.
Since I really am one of the least coordinated people on this lovely Earth know that even I can do this without falling on my face. So really anyone can Zumba. And since I’m told that the average one hour class burns about 1,000 calories how can I complain about all of the sweating involved?
Advice if you are thinking about trying Zumba?
- Don’t worry about missing steps… Just move!
- Wear shorter pants (after stepping on longer ones I learned this early)
- Wear lightweight shoes
- Bring a towel
- Bring lots of water
- HAVE FUN!!!
