Zumba is so much fun!

If you are someone who goes to the gym and counts the minutes until your workout is over…it may be time for you to try something different.

I was there once too…

I used to go to the gym and get on a treadmill and within 4 minutes (and I may be stretching that a little to make it seem like I really gave it all I had to make it to 5 minutes…) all I could think of was how long I had to keep doing this to reach the end.

Sound familiar?

Don’t get me wrong.  The gym can be GREAT! Some people really love it and I encourage my clients to switch it up and go if it inspires them. Trying different things can keep you from plateauing in your workouts.

When I found Zumba, my first reaction to the video I watched was “This is AMAZING!! I wanna do this!”

When I found my first class and went my first reaction was (tons of laughter from me) and “What the heck am I doing? I must look like a clown right now!”

The difference between yoga classes and Zumba classes (besides the obvious differences) is this…when you laugh and can’t stop in Zumba..it is fun and contagious….when you laugh and can’t stop in yoga…they kick you out…

I learned that one on my own too

(hence why I also teach Laughter Yoga…Kinda more my style)

After taking a few Zumba classes (started out with one a week), I began to know the moves a little more and fell in love with music and how FAST the class went.  I felt like I just stepped into class and suddenly we were at the cooldown.

BAM!

Just like that I was sweaty, relaxed and DONE my workout!! Felt so good!!

Each week came with more moves, new rhythms and then this class called Zumba Toning started and class was different but still as much fun as regular Zumba.  Then came Zumba Senato!!

What??!! All this from the Zumba Family??

The great part was that this class gave me a new way to continue doing what I loved and a new way to work my muscles so I didn’t plateau in my workouts.

WIN WIN AGAIN!!! THANK YOU ZUMBA FITNESS!

Fast forward to 10 years now…2 years as a student and coming up 8 years teaching.

People often as me “Is Zumba just a fad?”

Honestly, I don’t know…I have been doing it for a decade now and I am not bored and have no interest in quitting. I love it. It is passion. It is play. It is sweaty fun with an AMAZING community of people! I cannot imagine going back to anything else.

I think there are quite a few people out there, just like me, that a decade has passed and we are all wondering where the time went because it is just that AWESOME and easy to get hooked doing it!

Hope you come have some laughs, sweat and groove moves with us all soon! It is NEVER too late to start!

Much love,

Bring On The Sweat!

Sweating is healthy. Stinky sometimes but quite healthy! AND is a great indicator that you are burning lots of calories!

In our zumba classes you won’t even realize that you are sweating until half way through the class.  It sneaks up on you in a good way! I like to refer to it as “fun sweat”….you know when you are having such a good time that you forget you are actually working out!

Each and every one of my clients leave class with an awesome glow and the best part is you can go home….wash it off…and come back and get that glow on again the next day! 🙂

Sweat and FEEL GREAT!

Come see what I am talking about! First class is free and sales are on until January 31, 2015!!

We Are All Busy…Make Time!

Let’s face it…..we are ALL busy.

Whether it’s because of family, children, work, school, pets, commuting, we all have commitments that involve time and us being busy!

Some of the busiest people in the world still make time for their workout.  It may take you some time to sort out what time and which workout really supports you and your schedule but I promise you the busiest people workout because they know the benefit of taking care of themselves first really does make them more productive and focused in their day.

Take time this week to come out to a class. Schedule time for you and see the benefits!

YOU ARE WORTH IT!

Have Fun In Life!

Always be YOU, unless you can be Superman….then be Superman! 😉

With the hustle and bustle of daily life, please be sure to take at MINIMUM 2 hours a week to take care of you.  It is easy to say “I am too busy…..I have to take care of the kids…..I have to stay late at work….”  Those things DO happen from time to time, however, if you stop and take time out for you when those things show up, I promise you you will be more productive and quicker to accomplish what you need to because you took care of you FIRST!

Everything about you will feel better when you take time out to workout.  Our bodies crave a healthy workout.  Do not deny yourself! Go for it!

See what I mean!

Come and Shake It With Us!

Even Miss Piggy knows a great workout when she sees one!

Come and shake it with us in Zumba! Never tried it? Don’t worry….just know you will have a TON of fun and NO previous dance experience is necessary.

We keep the moves simple so they are easy to pick up. The music will move you to many parts of the world and will leave you floating out of class….or at least going “what?? we are done?? Where did the time go??”

Yes, that is my kind of workout….where the clock doesn’t even matter for the next 60 minutes!

Come try it out and have some fun! Life is much too short to be wrapped up in work all day!

Are You Looking to “Lose Weight?”

Our language really does create our world.  The intention to lose weight is great but then that really does give an opening for you to find it again.

When you are out to transform your body, it is important to not just look at “weight”. Look at your language and inches! It can be very discouraging if all you are doing is stepping on a scale once a week.  When you are working out and toning your body, you are building muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat.  It is most important to track your inches.  Inches around your shoulders, chest, waist, hips and thighs will give you a better picture of how you are doing along your fitness journey.

At the LOL Movement classes, if you wish to be measured and be tracked with your inch by inch look at what you are up to in your fitness goals, we can and will provide this for you!

In the meantime, if you are talking about “losing” weight, we suggest you just get rid of it and not find it again! 😉
