I just came home from my first Zumba class and it's official....I'M OLD AND LOST MY MOJO!
I got a free one week pass for my local YMCA because I'm bored with my water aerobic class...yeah, you read that right...I've been doing that so long, I began phoning it in....so I went on to deep water aerobics....and eventually, that became boring, so I felt like I had to change it up a little...and I sure did.
For those of you who don't know what Zumba is...it's basically dancing aerobic style. They incorporate Salsa, Hip Hop and even some Belly dancing moves, which btw...I use to do way back in the day. For 1 hour, I gyrated, grind, shook, twisted and shimmied all the while keeping rhythm and trying to watch the instructor. I wasn't the oldest person there but I wasn't the youngest either which made me feel a little better but man....I have NEVER sweat so much in my life and thank goodness the moves are wild and crazy cuz my body movements fit right in. Before the class the instructor told me to just follow her feet and I'd be alright and that lucky for me, she tweaked her back and has to modify her workout. Well, if that was modifying her workout, then I'd better go out and buy Zumba shoes (which they have) and practice around the house....or perhaps put Telemundo on the TV and try to absorb some of that latin~ness.
Tomorrow I'm gonna try the AquaZumba class...yup, Zumba in the pool...that should be interesting, but as I was walking down the hallway after class, I spied a senior citizen stretch and fit class and some of the participants had the option to do all the moves sitting on a chair...
I filed that away for future reference...just in case....I'm Just Sayin'
