I've been interested in trying a Zumba class for quite some time. I suppose its all the rage right now - the class everyone wants to try, and I happily jumped right on that bandwagon! When the fall classes were announced through my city's parks & recreation program I was happy to see several Zumba options. And even better, one of my friends who I run with said she'd be interested in trying the class too! Several weeks ago now we signed up, and tonight was our first class.
It was SO MUCH FUN!! It was an amazing workout, and the hour flew by. Learning each of the routines was a very fast-paced challenge, but they were relatively easy to pick up. The music was so upbeat, and I'm pretty sure I worked every muscle in my body at some point...yes, as I write this, my legs are starting to burn. My friend and I both agreed we're glad we've been running, because at least our cardio conditioning is good - made the class a little easier!!
So the verdict is this: I could Zumba every day; and I would love a two hour class, rather than just one. Moreover, I can't wait for next Wednesday to have the class again!!
If you have thought about trying Zumba but haven't yet, go for it!! Shake, shimmy and sweat your little heart out...I know I will be!
