Do You Love Zumba?

Zumba Fitness Total Body Transformation System DVD Set

I’ve been into Zumba for a few years now and love it just as much now as when I first started taking the classes. I first became interested in taking Zumba classes after reading some friends Facebook statuses about how excited they were to be going to Zumba that night. I had to know what this was because quite a few people seemed to be going to this one class. The consensus was, “At Zumba, you basically just dance for an hour straight.” A friend explained that Zumba is a mixture of different types of dance. It was comprised of mainly Latin dance but you will find some Country, hip-hop, classic, African, Broadway mixed with aerobics.
I must admit I was nervous about taking the Zumba class. Gym classes seem soo intimidating sometimes. As I walked into Dragonfly Living Arts I saw an older woman who was chatting with a friend of mine at the front desk telling her about how Pilates really made her feel stretched out and was urging my friend to take the bellydancing classes. At this point I was waiting for the Zumba enthusiasts to show up and show me how inadequate at Zumba I really was. Fortunately for me some more friends showed up and as we were discussing how to look glamorous while falling on our faces or stepping on someone else’s toes. I began to look at the rest of the class participants and realized maybe this class wouldn’t be so intimidating after all. The ladies that were doing Zumba were all ages, shapes and sizes & even the instructor made you feel relaxed.
Now that I have been doing it for sometime I have notice Zumba classes on every street corner. Gyms are offering it more and more and even Xbox & Wii got on the ball with it. If you have never tired it you should. I love dancing it is one of my favorite things to do but if you aren’t a dancer you shouldn’t be discouraged this is one of the most fun and least intimidating classes you can take because it is a free for all. Everyone does their own thing and just gets in shape.
