High Park Brewery Zumba & a Pint Wednesday August 7th @ 6:45pm

This may sound a little crazy to some but I have always wanted to do Zumba in a cool brewery or night club!

The environment to me just screams ZUMBAAAA!!!

I am so happy that last week we got to do Zumba in High Park Brewery! We had 30 people on the floor doing zumba and around 50 people (dancers & non-dancers) in the brewery for the night! It was an awesome event bringing our community together! We even had 2 babies & 3 dogs! It really is a space for everyone 2-legged and 4-legged!

The feedback I received was awesome! 

“The parking is amazing! Free! And so much of it!”

“That was the most fun Zumba class!”

“You could feel the energy in the brewery”

“That beer was delicious!!”

“When can we do that again? I want to bring my friends!”

“That was easy to follow! It was my first time!”

And the feedback continued throughout the night….

At the end of the night, Ted & I (one of the amazing owners of the brewery) sat there talking about how great the night was….then we said s if reading each others minds…..”Let’s do it again!!” ūüôā

We both agreed we didn’t want to wait too long, so Wednesday August 7th is the PERFECT date!

Finding Joy In Your Life

Believe it or not before I found dance again in my life, I was quite an unhappy person.

The discovery of zumba fitness, for me, was like the opportunity to go around the world in 60 minutes without having to pay for an “around the world” trip! ¬†The music takes us to places you may never have visited but always wanted to. ¬†The steps are easy to follow so I was not trying to be a part of the National Ballet or anything in competition.

I could move, get lost in the music and what I didn’t realize at the time was how healthy that would be for my mind. ¬†I had it like I was doing this because I wanted to get into shape. What I came out of it with was a smile on my face every¬†time and not one that I had to push myself to do. I was just naturally happier than I had ever been!

I was researching today some of the benefits to dancing and found this on the Prevention.com site about a study that was conducted:

Swedish researchers, writing in the¬†Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, studied 112 teenage girls who were struggling with problems including neck and back pain, stress, anxiety, and depression. Half of the girls attended weekly dance classes, while the other half didn’t. The results? The girls who took the dance classes improved their mental health and reported a boost in mood‚ÄĒpositive effects that lasted up to eight months after the classes ended.

“According to these results, despite problems such as stress and other potential challenges in being an adolescent girl, dance can result in high adherence and a positive experience for the participants,” says lead study author Anna Dubert, of Sweden’s Center for Health Care Sciences, in a press release. “[This] might contribute to sustained new healthy habits.” ¬†(taken from prevention.com site)

This is the result that was shown in teens.  Now imagine, you as an adult, the results that it can produce.

Dancing is not only about movement but the music can literally have your mind clear which can be one of the biggest parts of the battle when you are grumpy or upset about something.

If you are having a bad day I request you do not go home and indulge in it….get yourself to a fitness class STAT! Do not listen to the negative thoughts you are having.

No matter how terrible you are feeling in the moment….put on your work out clothes, strap on your shoes and get yourself to the nearest class. ¬†If you are still struggling to get yourself out of the house, take an emergency dance break in your house….crank up the radio, your ipod with your favorite song and dance like nobody is watching! It’s like calling 9-1-1 for your soul!

Your body and mind will thank you for it.

Do Not Let Weather Stop You!

In this chilly weather I am so clear how hard it can be to get motivated to get out of the house and get to a fitness class. ¬†There are times when I don’t want to come out of the house myself but if I didn’t show then there would be no instructor so no matter what my thoughts are about it….I go.

I know I have wrote about this topic before, however, in the cold of winter it is always a good reminder that the hardest part of getting to anything you need or should get to…is simply getting yourself OUT OF THE HOUSE.

Once I am in motion to get somewhere, everything becomes simple.  There has never been a moment when I have gotten in the door to whatever event or class it was that I have regretted going once I have gotten there.

A few tips I have to support anyone coming out:

  1. Bundle up! Layer your clothing so that once you have completed your work out you can keep warm on your way home. OR change before you leave class.
  2. Come a few minutes early if you can to get settled in and warmed up.
  3. DO NOT stay home just because it is cold. If you do, you will find a reason to not show up often and before you know it you have no routine for your fitness.
  4. If you are sick, this is the only time to stay home and rest. Your body needs to be taken care of and if you are sick, give yourself the space to just be sick and rest.
  5. Do it for YOU! You are worth it. ¬†Cold weather or not. Do not be stopped by environment…unless there is a huge ice storm or the news is actually saying to stay home.
  6. Drink lots of water. Sometimes in colder weather we do not drink as much water because we are not over heating…drink it like you normally do. Stay hydrated!
  7. Take the 60 minutes of class to get lost in the music, have some fun and de-stress by taking yourself to a tropical place in your mind!

Be the leader of your life and not stopped by environment or your thoughts! Live and play full out! We only got this one life so let’s live it!

Zumba classes are happening!! Check out our Zumba Party Schedule and come join the fun!

Will This Be YOUR Year?

2016 is finally here.  All the waiting and deliberating for this big day and it has now arrived.

Here is the question…..what will you do and who will you be to have this be an amazing year?

It is not that things just happen to us each year. ¬†It is a set of actions OR in-actions that we take that have the year be the “best ever” or the “worst ever”. ¬†That being said, I am totally clear and understand there are things that happen that seem completely out of our¬†control. ¬†When I look at it though, I can see how I react to it all will set in motion the next steps of actions I will take and what will come next.

In the world of fitness when resolutions are made I have said this myself before “I am going to lose 15 lbs and be at my strongest this year!” and then I went back to sitting on my couch, eating unhealthy foods and blaming it all on the stress I had at my job that made me want to do nothing but “relax” at the end of the day.

Sound familiar?

What I thought when coming home and turning on the TV and eating whatever I wanted was helping me to “relax” it was actually just setting me up to have a difficult day again on Tuesday, then Wednesday, then Thursday, then THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY came and then I could REALLY relax until Sunday afternoon when I would start to stress about all the work I had to do on Monday.

Where do you think TGIF came from? I think it came from this type of work cycle myself and the lack of physical fitness as an outlet to BURN AWAY THE STRESS AND CALORIES!

What I saw for myself is that even when I had those really stressful days, as soon as I got myself to a fitness class and got in the zone of working out, I felt ALIVE again! Like all the stress of the day melted away and I could breathe again.

Life got really simple when I started AND stuck to a regular fitness routine.  Sure, I struggled to get out the door to class most days, sometimes I still do and I am the instructor! However, the hardest part has always been getting there and when I shifted my thinking to remind myself how great I felt AFTER a workout, you bet I was going to be there.

TGIF should be changed to THANK GOD IT’S FITNESS!!!

What I am trying to say here is it really is great to set a New Year’s Resolution and YOUR actions will truly dictate whether by December 31, 2016 you have achieved them or not. ¬†Don’t be worried if you fall off, get back up. ¬†Don’t worry if your goal shifts, set the sails in a direction that keeps you moving forward.

BE your own success story this year!
