My New Zumba Experience

So I went to my first Zumba class last night at a gym that's on my way home from work.  They have class every Tuesday night at 7.15pm.  I think I might just buy some passes and go every Tuesday night.  So the class runs 45 minutes, instead of the hour that I'm used to.  The instructor is from Columbia so you know she can move.  I always thanked God for Maria because I could never move like Lauren.  Well, this woman is worse (in a good way, of course) than Lauren!!

There were 5 people (including me) in the class.  It's in the gym next to all the cardio and weight equipment, so everyone can do their workouts and watch us.  It started out with all of us right behind the instructor (in front of the mirror) and then ended up with me behind the instructor and everyone else way behind us.  I hope that I wasn't flinging too much sweat on them, but we all know that I sweat enough for at least 10 people!  I laugh, but it can be quite embarrassing.  Not much I can do about it, though.

So the moves were pretty much what I'm used to, but quicker.  Probably a good thing that it was only 45 minutes.  And then afterward I had to walk home, so I didn't get home until about 8.40pm.  I felt really good, though.  I love Zumba.  It felt good to get some good stretching in, too.  I should do that regularly, but I've gotten out of practice with all the changes in my life.  More later!


  1. YEAH!!!!! So glad you found a class!!! I can only imagine how GREAT an instructor from Columbia actually is!! Enjoy!!!

  2. It’s not surprising that you fell in love with Zumba! Actually, it’s the only fitness program that I enjoy so much. Because it’s a dance that has a mixture of body sculpting movements, body toning and fat burning becomes easier to achieve. I hope you’re still continuing your Zumba sessions. :)
