My friend and co-worker, Meghan convinced me to go with her to a workout class this evening and it was good. It is called “Zumba” and it’s described as a fitness program that is inspired by Latin dance. We did the Salsa, Samba, Cha Cha and many other Latin dance moves. I haven’t been to a class in a long time and this was perfect for me. It was a little over an hour long and we didn’t stop moving the entire time. My heart rate was definitely up for most of the class. The instructor was great and very motivating. I like taking classes like this because I don’t get bored and the time flies. We would learn about 2-4 combinations per song and then put them to work with the music. I am sure that I looked like a fool for some of it, but it was fun.
I left feeling energized and wonderful. If this class if offered at your gym, fitness studio, etc., I highly recommend it. I am going to try and go on a more regular basis.
