Zumba Love

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I haven't blogged in a while and there is so much I want to write about! I'll keep it short though.

You know how experts on Sparkpeople always encourage us to "play" instead of just "working out"? I understood the logic, but never really thought I would find any physical activity that I actually could consider play- I couldn't fathom physical exertion being fun. Tolerable, maybe, but fun? NO! All that changed when I took Zumba a few weeks ago. I love it! As a disclaimer I must say that not all Zumba instructors are created equal. Some classes are better than others, but Kat at my LA Fitness is the BEST!! By the end of that class I'm soaked, I've burned at least 500 calories, and I'm sad that it's over. I really understand now how ENJOYING your exercise completely changes your life. I look forward to my classes now. Even when I'm tired, I'll still go, because it's FUN! It's a treat instead of torture. I encourage anyone who reads this to not give up. Keep trying things until you find something that YOU like/love to do.

I haven't made it to my goal yet, but if loving Zumba will help me with my consistency, I think I'm closer than I've ever been before.

    You are soooo right... not all instructors are created equal, I just wrote that on your page, lol. I am soaked when I leave that class every time I go too. I am glad someone enjoys it as much as I do emoticon

    Keep it up girl and shout to Kat at your gym and Cindy and Lyna at mine!!!!

    Glad to hear this - I'm doing a 2 hour zumba class on Sunday, and have been wondering what people thought of it.
