Zumba Update!

I send a shout out to all those of you who have been enjoying Zumba with me! Its so much fun is hard to think it's a workout! I am happy to say that some of my students are buying Zumba CDs and keeping the party going at home.

Quick tips to make Zumba class even more fun....Practice at home! You can purchase CDs or even go the free route and start with YouTube. One of my students said, "I had so much fun after the class I went home to show my husband what I did. The next day I looked it up on YouTube and worked out!"

As you learn to Zumba:
There are four basic steps; Salsa, Meregue, Reggeton, and Cumbia. The good news is that the steps have similar patterns, easy to learn, and repeated often during class. The reason why Zumba is also fitness is because we use arm variations (helps increase heart rate), lunges, and squats (for lower body strengthening), and often engage the core muscles (to sculpt and tone midsection). These fitness elements make Zumba a perfect total body workout.

During class, I preview the steps prior to the song. I give lots of visual cues so that you know what to do. If you have never tried or are new to Zumba just remember if you can walk, you can Zumba!

Class Schedule update:
No Class May 2nd
