Day 123 - Zumba Tone

I'm not a stranger to Zumba, but I am no expert at it either. Despite lack of rhythm and probably looking like something is wrong with me, I enjoy a "normal" Zumba dance/fitness class and the variance it provides from the ho-hum regular group exercise class. Today however, I took on the challenge of a Zumba Toning class which incorporates weights and toning, with Latin dance. All I can say, is thank goodness I can laugh at myself and lack of coordination! To add insult to injury, because I was one of the last people to show up, I got a nice front row position where everyone could see my off balance gyrations and wrong direction turns (won't even mention the sloppy footwork). None the less, an hour later I burned some calories, felt better, and even talked to some fellow Zumba peeps. Fear of breaking something (namely a hip) and Zumba Tone conquered!

  1. Z is for zumba.. I was tempted on the day but decided that other than seeing signs for it every where I didn't have enough background knowledge !! Dance and weights sounds like a health and safety risk assessment nightmare :)
