I happen to have a 'bucket list' of sorts when it comes to different kind of exercises or exercise class.  For example, I had to try Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred when it came out and was all the rage.  My current list includes the following:
  • Jillian Michaels
  • Zumba
  • Boot Camp
  • Spinning
  • Body Pump
  • Bikram (Hot) Yoga
Of course the list is always evolving and changing.  But I finally had the chance to try Zumba!  Turns out there is a woman in my building who leads a Zumba class on Tuesday and Thursdays FOR FREE!  I finally made it last week after our staff meeting.

If you're not sure what Zumba is, it's essentially a dance class that uses music primarily with a Latin vibe and incorporates all types of dance moves (some of them reminded me of my days when I was taking jazz classes).  Anyway, I was a little nervous that I wouldn't find it challenging enough or I wouldn't find it to be enough of a workout.  I'm happy to report that I had nothing to be nervous about.

It was so fun.  And I found that a lot of the jumping moves or squatting moves could be taken further and it's really all about what you make of the workout.  I was sweating up a storm and loving every second of it.  If you haven't already, I highly recommend checking it out.  Have you tried it?  Unfortunately I haven't been able to make it back due to all my doctors appointments this week, but I'm looking forward to Tuesday!

Happy Saturday everyone!


  1. my mom has been wanting me to try a class with her...guess we should because it sounds like FUN! Glad you had a good workout :)

  2. I loveee Zumba! I haven't been to a class in about a month tho b/c of laziness but I am REALLY going to go next week.

  3. I'm the same way that I love trying out new workouts- I definitely recommend getting to a boot camp class and hot yoga soon, I absolutely love both of them. I've only tried zumba as part of a 3 part tester class, I am really not good at those kind of things though because I cannot ever remember routines so anything like dancing and even step aerobics and I am lost!
