ZUMBA! ZUMBA! ZUMBA!
Today I went to my first Colvin Center class for this blog. This class was Zumba and it’s exactly like it sounds. It has somewhat of a Latin vibe and definitely involves shaking your butt off. This class is perfect if you are willing to do cardio but you aren’t too thrilled about getting on a treadmill or an elliptical. Those machines can be so mundane.
This class gets you moving. You and the class get to make a fool of yourself. Two and half hours later and my legs are already sore; so it’s working! The instructor was fun and encouraged you to REALLY SHAKE IT and even make WHOO sounds. I won’t lie, the moves were a little difficult to keep up with on certain songs but she does the routines multiple times; enough for you to get the hang of it and feel confident as well as working out.
This whole point of my blog is to get me and other people out of their comfort zone and into something different. The instructor brought belly dancing chains to wear. This was completely optional; they are supposed to get you into the spirit of the class. I am really shy so normally I wouldn’t go near one of those hip accessories. But before I went to the class I told myself that regardless I was going break out of my shell, so I wore one. From firsthand experience, it really makes the dancing more enjoyable and you feel sexy doing it.
I was seriously nervous about going to a class by myself not knowing anyone. I was then relieved. The other girls in the class were so nice! Those that had been there before told me what to expect. There were even some first timers just like me.
I would recommend this class for anyone that is ready to get off the exercise bike and into something fun.
