I am in love with Zumba! Oh my gosh! I went to a class last night at the Student Act for the first time and absolutely loved it. The class was an hour long, but it only felt like ten minutes! I loved the music/beats, the high energy of the instructor (and the participants) and I couldn't believe how good of a work out I was getting. I definitely had a good sweat going on! At first, I didn't know a lot of the moves and I was kind of looking like a goof ball trying to keep up and do the right thing at the right time. But by the end of the class I was getting along just fine. I am so excited to go back tonight. The Student Act offers the class Tuesdays at 5:15 for an hour and Wednesdays at 4:00 for 45 minutes. I am so happy to mix this into my half-marathon training. Twice a week I am suppose to engage in some sort of "cross training," basically just any other sort of cardio. My training suggest swimming, roller-blading, or biking, but I am sure Zumba will be a great addition! Not to mention I was reading some article online the other day that mentioned dancing is a great cardio because it works so many miniscule muscles that we cannot work/tone in other types of workouts. If you haven't tried Zumba, you definitely need to. I think it may change your life!
