Zumba Motivates Me To Exercise!

This Sparked Me!

My secret is finding an exercise you love and doing it! I trained in Tae Kwon Do for 2.5 years and did enjoy it but stressed out over learning the Korean terminology and patterns. I felt guilty if I didn't attend class but constantly looked for excuses not to go. I now go to Zumba twice a week!

The class is informal, no need for equipment, no heavy dobok to iron and then sweat in, no pressure. That's the key. You just turn up and throw yourself around. Everyone smiles! The music is catchy. There are no disadvantages that I can think of. Try it - there are classes everywhere! emoticon

    Hi Lizerbeth
I was given the Zumba CD's for my birthday. After reading your post I am inspired to put them on. I too am training in TKD. i have been learning for 14 yrs. My Instructor (who is not Korean) makes silly english connections to the Korean words it does help believe me. Good luck emoticon
