I have decided to get back into shape and take control of my health. This past summer I had put on the dreaded ” summer weight”, and now it needs to be taken off…immediately. I go to the gym weekly but it does get boring for me and I find myself not feeling quite motivated. Then I heard about Zumba and it’s cult following all over the world. Zumba is a fitness class but really it is more like a dance party.
Zumba is Tested & Proven To :
1. Burn at a rate as high as 1000 calories per hour
2. Target your lower body, abs, core and upper body
3. Lose a dress or pant size in your first 10 days

Our first Zumba Class, this past Tuesday at Move With Grace Studio, http://www.movewithgracestudio.com/ with amazing certified Zumba teacher Dominica was insane fun. The mums came out and we were anxious not knowing what to expect, but soon felt comfortable enough with the routine. Dominca kept the class high energy but at a pace for us to all follow. During the one hour class we did three genres of dance, Latin, African, Bolly-wood. We all agreed it did feel like a dance party, after class we all re-hydrated our bodies with my favourite and another thing I am addicted to Zico coconut water, http://zico.com/ . I must admit the following days I was in such pain, good pain though from muscles that have not been used in while. I am addicted to Zumba.
