Why I think you should try Zumba!

Zumba is by FAR my absolute favourite way to get a workout in. Why? Because it's fun, gets me moving and it makes me feel GOOD! Plus I get to do one of my favourite activities frequently during a 1 hour class. BOOTY SHAKE!!!

Never heard of Zumba? Here is a video example. Zumba is a fitness program that combines dancing and aerobics. I've experienced all kinds of different styles of dance but the ones I really enjoy are hip-hop, soca, merengue and belly dancing.

There are a few different classes you can attend including Zumba Gold, Zumba Toning, Aqua Zumba, Zumba circuit, Zumbatonic (for kids), and Zumba Sentao. I have tried regular Zumba, Toning and Aqua Zumba.

Here is some more info:
  • A 1 hour class can burn 500-1000 calories
  • Zumba is for everyone! It doesn't matter your size or your age
  • You don't have to know ANYTHING going into it. Can you move your legs? You can do Zumba!
  • You go at your own pace and intensity
  • Zumba moves in the song are fairly repetitive so you know what the next steps are
  • Really boosts your confidence! I smile through the entire workout!

Also, they have really, really cool Zumba gear! You should check it out!

If you're in the Waterloo region I recommend you check out Studio Fuzion as they offer so many different classes every day of the week! Jenn and I both love it and we laugh A LOT because it is sooo fun!

Hopefully I will see you there!
