For the Love of Zumba!!

Zumba isn’t for everyone.. but it’s definitely for us! Sometimes fitting in a workout can be frustrating and sometimes boring and repetitive. This is why Zumba is so damn awesome! Every time you go in you get a different workout because there are so many instructors PLUS they all have different moves for different songs.

Last Sunday we went in for a morning class as I (Steph) had a free pass and I was able to take a friend. I obviously took Jenn as she is my zumba partner. We always have a blast. Today we got our ASSES KICKED!! Oh my.. after the first song people were saying “if this is your warm up I’m already done!” and they all looked exhausted after the first few songs. Personally I felt like I was done half way through but there was NO WAY I was going to quit. After the class was done I felt like I had a total body workout and felt AAAHHHH-mazing. We also went in Tuesday night for the most challenging class which also whooped us.. but it was worth it!

Steph’s Thoughts on Zumba
I know some people don’t want to try Zumba because they’re scared they will look like an idiot or won’t know what to do. No one is watching you so don’t care what people think! If they ARE watching you it’s because you’re doing it right and they’re trying to follow you instead of the instructor. Zumba isn’t really that easy but with practice and effort you can get the hang of it really quickly. One thing I like to do if I can’t figure out the steps is count them out in my head. It makes it soo much easier!
I initially started doing Zumba in November 2011 and quickly fell in love. I purchased a monthly pass from LivingSocial in November 2012 for Studio Fuzion in Kitchener. I had been there a few times before but I was trying to go 3-4 times a week. It was a blast! Now I go when I can and am purchasing a monthly membership next month. It will push me to get more workouts in and if I get the recurring membership I know I will go 3-4 times a week again. It’s definitely worth a shot to try this out... I highly recommend it!

Jenn’s Thoughts on Zumba
I tried Zumba for the first time with Steph. I bought a promotion where you received unlimited classes for $29 for a month. How could I turn that deal down!? This is what started it all. Zumba doesn’t feel like a normal workout class, to me it feels like a dance class. I am usually sweating by the time the first song is over, but not exhausted. By the third song I start to really feel the burn, and by the middle of the class... Exhaustion happens! It doesn’t feel like regular workout exhaustion though, because the music is so fantastic and up beat that you just want to keep dancing! Near the end of the class when we do stretches during the last song, it feels so amazing. You can really feel how hard your muscles have worked and it gives you a chance to catch your breath. I always feel very refreshed after a Zumba class. Going with my bestie Steph makes it that much more fun.
I recommend Zumba to anyone who is looking for a fun workout. There are people of all ages, shapes, sizes and experience. So if this is something you have never tried before I encourage you to go! Following the steps are not that hard and people don’t even pay attention to you, they’re busy focusing on their own moves.

Finding different ways to exercise keeps it fresh, so Steph and I encourage you to change it up. Doing the same routine gets boring. Try Zumba, we did and we love it!

If you’re from the Kitchener-Waterloo area please check a class out! You can find schedules and pricing information on their website here: Studio Fuzion
