Oh my gosh! You guys.... I just had an AWESOME workout! I'd been hearing about zumba fitness rush, but it is for Kinect, which I don't have. I was considering buying one just to play the game when I found out that it is also available for Wii, under the name "zumba fitness 2".
I've been addicted to the same workout guru for so long, that I felt a little sneaky trying something else. The truth is, I'm not bored with Chalene at all. I still LOVE my workouts, but sparkpeople motivated me to think about the idea of VARIETY in working out. I realized that I may be working the same muscle groups over and over because I adhere so devotedly to all things Turbo.
Well... I'm here to report that zumba fitness 2 is AMAZING! AWESOME! SO MUCH FREAKING FUN!!!! I did two classes, then my little one wanted to join in and we did a few extra songs together. So much fun playing together! Then, the big one got home from swim practice, and SHE watched. She wanted to join in, but her dad nixed it - too much homework to play a game.
Still, how cool is that? BOTH daughters interested in joining me for fitness? I can see this is going to be great. I worked up a HUGE sweat, had a blast, and the sciencey side of me was quite happy with the fact that it keeps track of minutes / calories etc. What fun! I'm sitting here trying to do some work for a publishing company, and I just keep thinking "I could run down and do a quick short class..." Again I say, how cool is that?
Oh, my poor, dear turbo videos - you may not get quite as much play this week. I'm an evil, fickle vixen who has a new workout love!
