Zumba Rocks My World!
I had a post all ready to post here about interval training but I decided to postpone it because I had Zumba this morning and it was so purely awesome I just had to blab to the world about it. I think I was even blinded by its sheer awesomeness.
The instructor didn’t incorporate any new dances into the class so I wasn’t all…
There was, however, new-ish choreography that she introduced a few weeks ago. I only take the class once a week but, after 3 or so classes even I start to get this stuff down so I didn’t look like a total goofball in class. In fact, I was able to grab a spot in front of the mirror today. I wanted to see how much progress I had made since restarting back in January.
WOW! I had no idea I was able to get my groove on so well! I didn’t bother watching myself during the song I’m still having difficulty with (it’s super fast but I’ve almost got it) because I was too busy watching every tiny movement the instructor was doing, but I’m sure I wasn’t THAT bad…
I wore my HR monitor and checked out the results of my ultra-fun “work”out.
- Class Length – 45min
- AVG HR – 164bmp
- Peak HR – 180bmp
- Calories Burned – 701
701 calories burned. Who cares what you look like, right?? Am I right?? Yeah, I’m totally right.
Here are some reasons to try Zumba:
Who wouldn’t want all of that?? And you can look super sexy. Well, in your head you can anyway. But after some (or a lot) of practice, you can look sexy for real doing it. You know the saying, “Dance like nobody’s watching?” That’s how it is with Zumba. Just pretend nobody’s watching you and DANCE!
Now I’ll leave you with a video as a parting shot to get you to join me in my Zumba love.
