One Step At a Time!

Do you ever just want to do some type of fitness but stop yourself because you have the thought “but will THIS be the thing I can stick to?” or “will THIS be the exercise I will actually get in shape with?”

Many people stop before they even get started due to mindset.

Myself included.

I knew for many years that I wanted to do some form of fitness and many times I would start at the gym and do some cardio, a bit of weights and then get frustrated because either

a. I wouldn’t be consistent because I couldn’t see where this work was going or

b. I just wasn’t having fun and it began to feel like another j-o-b and quite frankly I already had one of those doing 40+ hours a week!

When I discovered Zumba, I realized it was actually similar to something I would do often that would pick up my spirits. At home, I would crank up my music, clean my house, sing out loud, shake my bum while I tidied up!

The best part with Zumba is I no longer had to CLEAN UP to get this inspiration going! 🙂 

I could just go to a class, stand in the front or the back and just dance and lose myself in the music.  I stopped having those thoughts of “will this get me in shape” or “will this be the thing I stick to.”

It just became easy because I fell in love with it.

A great zumba instructor and class has a freedom to it. Everyone is accepted. Everyone CAN dance and are in a safe, fun environment where people just let loose and sweat awesomeness everywhere.

You will be having so much fun that you don’t need to see the end result, you just ride out the journey….one…step…at…a…time!

See you in class!

Summer is Commmminnnngggg!!!!

Okay…I may be a little premature in saying this, however, at some point it must show up!

Summer always does!

That being said, why not get a jump-start on feeling great inside and out by coming out to “shake what your momma gave ya!” at a local zumba class!

No need to get a gym membership or feel intimidated by equipment and weightlifters.  The only thing you need to bring is water and maybe a towel to wipe down after class because one thing I 100% promise…WE GONNA SWEAT!

The location is fun and community oriented, the ladies are awesome and welcoming. We do not play games like in high school, we all just come out for a good time, to get lost in the music, have some laughs and walk away feeling awesome.

If that sounds good to you and you want to come join us, please do!

Relieve Stress This Winter With ZUMBA!!

Everyone’s moods shift when the weather changes, whether you believe it or not!  Many times when the weather shifts to colder, people deal with stress of the holidays coming, travelling to and from places, extra expenses and bills.

One way, or really FOUR different ways that you can relieve the winter stresses is through Zumba! Pick one and let us know so we can tell you where to take it and when! Give yourself the gift of fitness to relieve your stresses this winter!

1. Zumba Basics: Do you move your body or dance? PERFECT!!! This class is a great fit for you!!

Zumba is a latin cardio fitness class that incorporates in dance steps from around the world.  This class is typically 60 minutes in length and if you come to a LOL Movement Zumba class, you listen to your body, move, laugh and leave sweaty and happy!

2. Zumba Sentao: Zumba sentao takes the traditional latin cardio fitness dance and also incorporates in work with chairs. Honestly, this is one of the most fun, intense ab and leg workouts!

3. Zumba Toning: Using 1-2 lb weights you will dance and tone your body at the same time. This class is a blast!  You don’t even notice until the end of class how much you sweated and all the new muscles you worked out! It is amazing!!

4. Aqua Zumba: Do you struggle with land cardio classes because of the movement, possible jumping? Do your knees bother you? Never fear!! AQUA ZUMBA IS HERE!! Aqua Zumba is a brilliant class! 45 minutes of latin dance movement in the water. The water resistance with dance movements will give you a slow motion version that will provide the same level of cardio as a land Zumba class!
