|This is not my Zumba class. Obviously.|
I also really enjoyed the class because I took it with friends. We motivated each other to stick with it and we congratulated each other on a job well done. Sure, I was mostly surrounded by college students, but we all supported each other.
Another great thing about the class was the timing. (Unless you ask Ken, of course!) The class was Thursday mornings from 6:45-7:30. I could get up and go; wake myself up and get energized for the day. I also got a key to the showers in my building, so I came straight to work, showered, stopped by the deli downstairs to grab a muffin or bagel and the walked upstairs to work. It all worked out perfectly. And the instructor will be offering the class again in the Fall, so I am excited to take it again!
I've been told twice since this class started that I look like I've lost weight. While that wasn't really my intention going in, it is nice to hear. My clothes seem to fit better and I feel better (except for these stupid allergies today). I feel like I've got a bit more energy throughout the day. All in all, I'm glad I took the class and stuck with it.
Have you ever tried Zumba? Another group fitness class? What's your favorite way to exercise?
