Holy Cats and Cows, did I get worked over last night! I attended my first Zumba class.
What is Zumba? To quote there website, "Zumba fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy to follow moves to create a dynamic fitness program that will blow you away."
However today isn't about me, right? Nope today is supposed to be about someone else so I am writing this tribute to my Zumba instructor because she was the first person I thought of when I woke up to get a drink about 3:30 this morning and realized that I could feel muscles I know were not there before.
So thank you, Miss Zumba:
for not laughing when I had no clue what I was doing so I just waved my arms around like it was nobodies business.
for having the energy of my six year old and inspiring us all to dig out our inner child.
for introducing me to a beat of music I didn't know existed and moving your hips ways I never thought possible. I say yours because I KNOW mine didn't move that way.
for doing all this in a room that didn't have a mirror. Oh I can't stress to you how grateful I am for that one!
and thanks so much for telling me I did an awesome job even though I know that my Latin rhythm was more like a Latin dancers nightmare.
You ARE my new hero. I am hoping with your help I can move like Shakira one day.
If you haven't tried it you need to find a class near you. You will have a blast, get a workout and feel inspired. Click anywhere I typed Zumba to find a class.
