Ever since joining the Green Hills YMCA a few weeks ago, my roommate and I have been dying to try out the Zumba class on Saturday mornings. This past Saturday, we finally made our way in having no idea what to expect... and boy were we surprised!! Apparently this class has become quite a phenomenon with all the ladies and it was PACKED- they actually had to switch the class from the group exercise room to the basketball gym because it's become so popular.
For those of you who don't know what Zumba is, it's a dance class that fuses latin rhythms (think salsa and meringue) and hip hop moves into one class. Let me tell you, at first, we were kinda skeptical about how good of a workout it would be since it's "only dance class", but after the 1-hour session, Meg, Candice, and I could barely function enough to make it to the car... it was quite a workout indeed! We loved it though- the music was great to dance to, the moves were easy to learn, and the energy in the room made you want to shake your booty- we had quite an audience watching us, too! Definitely brought back a lot of memories from my days on the dance team back in high school. Needless to say, I will be back and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to try something different at the gym!
