Am I Too Old To Become a Famous Salsa Dancer?

Well I think my days of Treadmills and Elliptical Machines are OVER!!!

I just got back from a new “exercise” class that I absolutely LOVED! It is called Zumba!

Zumba class was a absolute blast. The hour flew by and by the end of class a was soaked in sweat and had a HUGE smile on my face! It was just so much darn fun, it felt more like a dance party than a “workout” class.

What the heck is Zumba?

So for those of you who have not heard of Zumba, it is a Latin music and dance infused exercise routine. It is high energy and everyone in the class is having an awesome time.

I spoke to one of the “regulars” in the class  today who has been doing it for quite awhile, and she is completely hooked and said that our teacher today was one of the best in town, yay for me. There are several exercise clubs in town that offer Zumba and she informed me of all the good teachers to follow and which clubs they taught in and what times. I’m all set.

This is what the official Zumba website had to say: “The Zumba® program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program that will blow you away. Our goal is simple: We want you to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked. Zumba® Fanatics achieve long-term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exciting hour of calorie-burning, body-energizing, awe-inspiring movements meant to engage and captivate for life!”

Celebrity fitness trainer, “Beto” Perez, stumbled upon the concept of Latin-inspired dance-fitness in his native Cali, Colombia in the mid-‘90s. He first brought Zumba to the states in 1999 and his success has just swept the nation and the world.

I am so very glad to have found a new form of exercise and movement that I can incorporate into my life and look forward to. How about you, do you have any fun favorite ways to move and get physical? I would love to hear from you, so please leave your comments below. I am always looking for new ways to have fun exercising, thanks.

Here is a sample class that I found on You tube, but I think our class was having even more fun :-)! Enjoy!

Be Well and Live Well, Dianne
