With my three months of free time I got myself a gym membership at my local all women’s GoodLife Fitness. After a few sessions with a personal trainer to set me off, I’ve been busting my butt at the gym every few days for the last three months, and have even enjoyed several group classes. Now that I’ve been busy with work it hasn’t been as easy to get to the gym, but the one class that is never hard to get off the couch for is ZUMBA! I’ve fallen in love and have the most fun dancing around and sweating my bum off three nights a week.
It’s like the most awesome workout ever. You burn a ton of calories and don’t even realize it. Its a class that combines latin and international music with simple and effective dance steps of samba, hip-hop, salsa, meringue and mambo. It’s a workout revolution. I even have an xbox game that uses the kinect camera to watch you dancing along with the instructors and gives you a mark out of five stars per routine. It’s the only time I’ve ever willingly smiled during a workout. I don’t even consider it a workout!
