I wasn't planning on doing a post about Zumba, but I just got finished with one of the workouts and felt intrigued. A lot of people have been asking me what it is, so Zumba is a dance inspired fat-burning workout. It combines moves from Latin dances such as salsa, samba, and lots of others with some hip hop other fun styles. Me and my mom went and took a class, it was an hour long, and it about killed us the first time, but was really fun. Since my mom has a crazy work schedule and it's hard for me to get a babysitter, being able to keep going to the classes was just not realistic. So my mom bought the dvd's and I have been using them the last couple of days. Despite having to banish the kids to upstairs while I workout, or having to cut it short cause Pallas is screaming, I still love doing it. The time flies by during the workout and my whole body feels good afterward. Actually going to the class is a lot more fun than doing it in my living room, but you gotta do what you gotta do. If you get the chance I would recommend everyone go try it out. If you have any type of dance background, you will especially love it.
Here's a link if you want to see a small example:
