My first Zumba session!

Hi guys! 

Today I went to my first ZUMBA session! 
I have been to Zumba before (ahem a year or two ago) however had never been to the session and gym that this class was being held at. The class was on from 1:30 until 2:30, so as soon as I got up, I changed into my workout clothes so I was motivated to go. I will admit, my anxiety took over on the drive there but I fought it off and imagined the healthy me in the long run. 
On arrival I couldn't find the hall and I was wandering aimlessly around. But before long I found it! There was five other ladies of all shapes and ability already there and Helen the instructor. I was made to feel instantly welcome! I told Helen what my goal was and about my spine. She was so welcoming and explained that this would be the perfect class to get me started! 

I found a nice empty space wayyyyyy at the back of the hall and then we started! Zumba was a mix of current and cultural songs with a zesty beat! Helen made it super fun by screeching and singing along to the music. Before I knew it, I was also singing and booty wiggling like everyone else! Oh my did it work up a sweat! However, I was having fun! Exercising and having fun? Who'd have thought! I managed the whole hour, only having water breaks the same time as everyone else! I was so proud! 

At the end of the session, I started chatting to Helen and a few of the girls and they told me about all these different sessions such as a Running Club which starts tomorrow. And do you know what? I am going! I feel as though I have come away from this exercise class stronger, sweatier of course but full of laughter and new friends! Now, if you read my previous post about running, you know I am awful but t be quite honest I don't care! As long as I am giving it ago, that's all that matters!!

Do you go to any exercise classes?

  3. Sounds like you had a great time. I loved zumba when I used to do it, it was always so much fun.
    Tonight I did a new gym class, it was power step and it was torture disguised as a gym class. My legs just refused to move several times.

  6. I did a zumba class the other day didnt do it all as didnt want to strain myself and feel guilty Id hurt the baby. But I love it and cant wait to get back after. XX


  7. I've always wanted to try Zumba but I'm reluctant because I have no co-ordination and I'm worried people will laugh at me! xx

  8. I'm kind of solo artist when it comes to running club, but classes do sound fun.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your progress :)

  10. I used to go to Zumba three times a week with a couple of friends and we loved it! We carried it on for a year and then life started taking over so we eventually stopped, I'm so rubbish with co-ordination and often made a fool of myself but I still thoroughly enjoyed it! Reading your post has made me realise just how much I miss it, think I need to get my butt into gear and round up my friends again x x
