Recently I joined Goodlife Fitness in preparation for my camino experience. Part of the program at the gym is zumba as an option. I started and only lasted for 30 minutes but loved it so much that I’ve been back 9 nines in three weeks. I figure by the time I get to 100 classes I will be in much better shape. I will be healthier and that sounds great to me.
I watched my instructor and her husband dance on youtube. You can go to youtube and searc h for Angelica and Jamie and you will see them dancing together. They are both trained doctors from Bolivia, who are trying to get accepted here. Angelica is actually doing a certificate in medical research. Jamie is going through a big process to get certified(not sure if that’s the correct word!) They are sweet and have a very kind disposition. I’m very lucky to have them in my journey to becoming fit.
12 million people in 125 countries attend zumba classes, which is a testament to the fun activity it is. You can put your own spin on the steps so that if you can’t jump, you can move your legs without jumping. I’m surprised that our classes are so small, with only three to a maximum of nine so far, in a studio that could handle 15-18. Perhaps Zumba will catch on here in Newfoundland and help improve our overall fit
