The girls and I are always on the lookout for fun ways to shed some lbs, and right after the holidays its more on the forefront of our minds than ever. We were asked to look into the Fitness Center at JCC Rockland and so we did. There will be an ongoing series of posts describing our experiences there- this one is about the Zumba class we attended as a trio last week.
We were asked to take a class together, looked at the schedule (click here) we were amazed at how many options there were- different classes at all sorts of times to meet the needs of the many people who take advantage of the center.
Only one of us had ever taken ZUMBA so we thought that would be fun, Wednesday evening at 6:30. So we spandexed up and went.
Well, we were so right, its a blast, but what I personally didn’t know is; it is one heck of a workout. My legs were burning and I was sweating hard, we all were. We laughed through it and were even told by the regulars that we weren’t half bad.
At first, it was a little difficult to do the moves with all the mirrors, but eventually I relaxed and was able to find my groove (sort of). In my “momness” it seems I am a bit less limber than I used to be, BUT I don’t think that will last if I keep at it.
Essentially I went dancing with my girls, just like I used to. It was a fabulous time. Though, I don’t remember my legs burning like that. I highly recommend you all give it a try too. Working out can seem daunting when you think of it this way, but with a group of friends, dancing to upbeat music- its different.
