Zumba Toning and other stuff

Friday, January 06, 2012

Well, I didn't make it to my Zumba class on Thursday, but I DID make it to a Zumba this morning. And it wasn't just any ordinary Zumba. It was Zumba Toning. I was kind of nervous as I was leaving home, cause I remembered that the child watch at the Y tends to get full real fast this time of year (Januray), but in reality, it was pretty empty. The class also wasn't as full as I thought it would be and I knew most of the people there (the same familiar faces I saw last year). Only a few newbies. Not too bad. I kinda contribute the smallness of this class to the fact that it's at 11 on Friday. I'm sure there are a lot less people available that time then on the afternoons/evenings I usually like to go to.
But back on subject. I knew Friday is Zumba Tonic. It's the only day they offer it. I've been to it before, but I gotta say, it was like maybe one or two songs using the zumba tonic sticks, and that's it. I even purchased my sticks at some point last year, but haven't used them much because of it. Today's class was WAY different. We did cardio (dancing) with weights for about 40 min and then we did some core workout on the balance ball. I felt pretty energized and awesome after. I am ok today, but I have a feeling I will wake up sore tomorrow....we'll see..... Anyhow, I liked it. And if I find time and I;m not extremaly sore I might go to the Saturday Zumba too - this one is just a regular class.

Also, learned today that the Y will be introducing the spinning class as of February. Good news as I always wanted to try it and they never had it before. Will try it out for sure! And hopefully, by February, the gym will get somewhat back to normal....
Now if they could also offer a hot yoga, I'd be good to go! And we could really use an indoor pool (we have an outdoor pool only), but somehow, I am not seeing them doing anything about it.

On the last note: I just signed my daughter up for another semester of ballet at our local rec. center. She loves it and I love that she has something outside her preschool to do. I just reminded myself that once her class resumes, I'll be able to work out the rec's centers gym while she takes the class. Score for both of us!!!

How was your day???

    I love zumba. I go as much as I can.What I like the most is that the class varies so much.
    One of my fave instructor incorporates core, weighst and bands to the routine as well.
    and you are right you can feel it, mostly the other day.

    Sounds like a great class! I hope you enjoy spinning, that is something I've always wanted to try.

    :) I've never tried Zumba toning. I suppose I should probably melt this fat off before I try to actually tone any muscles, huh?

    Glad to see you made it today! Yesterday I accomplished one of my major goals - to complete a Zumba master class. My Z Studio has one per month but I've always been to chicken to go. This time they were offering it for free and I did it! It was really crowded, though. There were like 50 people packed in there. I have no rhythm so, naturally, a few of my fellow Zumba-ers probably have sore feet today...
