So, a couple weeks ago, MIL asked me if I'd be interested in doing a night exercise class of some sort with her. With my evening work schedule one of the only ones that would work was an Intro to Basic Zumba with Yoga/Pilates Fusion. What is Zumba do you ask? Latin Dancing. The instrutor explains if the first time you go through a song, then we just did the song again no instruction, we did 3 songs like that, and 1 with just instruction. By the end of February we'll learn 9-10 dances, and in a class period we'll just go from song to song to song, to re-instruction. Here's a video I found. <-Click on that link! But honestly, I was a little scared the first song, there was some kind of a crow, and our instructor would yell out "Kawkaw" (that is supposed to be a crow sound) and flap her arms like wings. I couldn't even look at MIL or else I'd lose it, but in the end it was a really fun class!
My thoughts, your heart gets a pumping, my sides and legs were hurting by the end of each song. And who doesn't like finding some new movements especially with their hips. I know the hubs liked the few moves I showed him when I got home.
So, I think if you have the chance, take a Zumba class, the time flies by, you have fun and get a great cardio workout!
