My spin class at work ended last week and today I started Zumba. I took Zumba last fall and winter semester and loved it. It has been a few months since I last took Zumba. I had a new instructor today and holy cow!! She really worked us!! I'm not sure if it was because I haven't done any high cardio in awhile or if she is harder than the other Zumba instructors I've had, by half way through class I was thinking, please let this be the last song!
If you've never tried Zumba, it's a mix of Latin and hip hop inspired dance moves in a high cardio workout. There's great dance music playing and you follow the instructor in the front of the classroom. Whether you have danced before or haven't; whether you're a great dancer or have two left feet, it's a fun way to get your work-out in! Check out this video for an example of a Zumba class.
I ended the class, covered in sweat, my heart pumping and breathing hard. This is going to be a great class!
