I took my first Zumba class this evening! It was so much fun! I got to the gym early today, so I hopped on the elliptical for 30 minutes. I did two 12 minute miles! I was so excited! I have never broken 14 minutes before! :) That started my evening out great! Then I headed to Zumba. I met a couple of people, and they told me how amazing it was. I was still so nervous. The class is pretty big, at least 50 people. The ladies I met recommended I stand close to the front so I could see instructors feet. So I did! This made a big difference. I wanted to be in the back so no one could see me, but I am so glad I chose the front instead. We had 2 instructors. One Female, and one male. They both were great! It was such high energy! We didn't stop moving for the whole hour! It was a struggle only in the fact that I didn't know the routine's or the moves and it was hard to keep up sometimes. This also made it much more fun though! I don't think I can become bored with this! One of the song's the played was Brittany Spears, Womanizer. This was quite entertaining. They split the class in two and made us stand facing each other. We then began dancing towards each other. It was kind of fun! I never expected that, so it was interesting! I noticed there is a smaller class on Thursday mornings and then the bigger class that evening. I know I want to go back Thursday, I just haven't decided which class yet!
I have one visitor's pass for my gym, so if you want to come with me Thursday, let me know! :) We can Zumba together!
All-in-all it was a great experience! I can't wait to do it again Thursday! Looks like I found my "cross-training" for my running! :)
