Just Dance

Welcome to my new blog :-)
Thank you so much for switching over.

I am debating becoming a ZUMBA instructor. Or really any intructor, but Zumba is fun!
"Ditch the workout! Join the party!"

Sounds pretty awesome. I used Zumba DVDs a couple years ago when they first came out. I fell in love with them. When I lent them out to prove how awesome they were, they got lost or broken by others and I never saw them again. I then dropped more $$$ on a second set, but when I moved out they stayed at home with my mom so that she could get a workout in every once in a while (which she should start doing now that she is officially done working).

Another certification I would like is the a group fitness instructor, but it seems more intense and I tend to get these crazy ideas and not follow through so I need to be sure first. I met a woman that started with her Zumba certification, loved it, and went and got her group fitness one. That sounds like a good plan since the cost of the Zumba certification includes the set of their DVDs!

The problem is that the open training classes for the summer are in Portugal and Japan... worst.
Zumba has grown to this HUGE brand name with clothes, dvds, classes, workshops... ect.

If you havn't tried it, I suggest you do. It is a latin dance workout and it keeps your heart rate up with the theory that you do not need to follow exact steps as long as you are moving to the music!

I am going for my mini shopping trip today. Wish me luck :-)
