A few months ago one of my best friends (Lou,) encouraged me to try the new dance fitness craze, Zumba®.
Now... being the martial artist I am, (I have to confess,) I have more fight in me than dance. However, it seemed like a fun idea so I thought I would give it a try.
I would have to say it was like being a white belt once again, every thing is new, including the surroundings and people (you know the people that in your own mind you think will laugh at you if you get a move wrong.)
It is always scary to be a beginner and honestly, I guess I had forgotten how it felt. Once I got past the nerves after picking up a few of the steps I walked away to my surprise with a lot of sweat. Any one who knows me will know that if this happens I am one happy girl!
I could not believe the full body workout I had just received. Who would have thought working out could be such fun.
It was good to have a few of my friends their too, as we interacted with each other in the class as we all enjoyed the dance routines to our favourite songs.
I have to say though, if it were not for my fabulous Zumba® instructor Kinga, who is a 'Hungarian bundle of joy', I would not have felt so comfortable.
The other side to Zumba is that I have now made some new friends, and Kinga has now become one of my closest friends too. I love her!
So anyway, if you live near Bury St Edmunds and fancy giving Zumba a go her website is www.thefeelgoodproject.co.uk and her flyer is below! Do it! You will never look back.
