Kev and I got up early this morning to hit the gym before he went to work and after doing the Elliptical with him, I decided to try out the new Zumba fitness class they offer. I had a lot of fun. I had done a little bit of reserach on Zumba and could describe zumba dancing as a somewhat Latin form of music/dance. It is not as intense as Turbo Kick, the class I do 3x a week but I still burned just under 500 calories. To me it was a pretty relaxing type of workout but still good exercise.
I have found a few places online where you can learn more about Zumba if you should be interested. The Today Show had a segment on Zumba last October. I wish I could’ve seen that. Here is the Wiki definition of Zumba.
You can even buy Zumba fitness dvd’s online
I’m looking forward to going back to Zumba class next Thursday. Have you ever tried Zumba? I would love to hear all about your experience.
