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

COME JOIN THE FUN!!! YOU DON’T WANNA MISS THIS!!! 🙂 🙂
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.
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!
Do you ever have the thought “Should I go?”…. do not worry, you are never alone with this question.
Majority of people will question whether to do something and especially when it comes to taking time for yourself and your own health & well-being, MANY people question and then choose to do something other than taking care of themselves.
Myself included, until about 9 years ago when I got serious about taking care of me! I used to question whether I should go to a class or go to the gym a couple of times a week. When it came down to going to the gym, I would often sell out on myself because I did not enjoy running on a treadmill or lifting weights. It was easy to say “no I won’t go.”
Even when I started Zumba, as much as I enjoyed it, there would be times I would say “nah, not today!” but what would end up happening is that one day would turn into a whole week and then I would feel anxious, lethargic and behind the game of taking care of me rolling into the next week….
Once I adopted the mentality of still asking myself “should I go?” with full intention of the answer always being “YES!” no matter how I felt (unless running a fever), I would ALWAYS feel better that I went.
It is so easy to sell out on ourselves and get busy in the day-to-day. Honestly though, once I started being consistent with taking care of me, the Day-to-day just got really easy and more fun too!
Take time out for YOU….ALWAYS!!
If you are a “New Year’s Resolution” person you may be well on your way to your new goal. If you are a “New Year to start something New person” you may still be looking for that new “thing” to try out and see where it goes!
Personally, I am more the second person than the first. It really doesn’t matter though which person you are or if you take on neither of these. Often times we stress ourselves out at this time of year thinking that if we don’t have that “New Shiny Goal” in place than we have already failed for the year before we can succeed, or if we take something on and in the first week something happens and we can no longer commit to it that the whole year is now blown…
Hogwash! (as my mom would say!)
A New Year only holds the meaning YOU/I attach to it. We can actually start and stop goals at anytime and it means nothing about who we are or how the rest of the year will go if we do.
Mindset is everything in the game of life, in my opinion. The moment I make myself wrong or something wrong that is going on around me is the moment that I have gone down the rabbit hole and will spend the next week/month/year trying to dig myself out of it.
Give yourself the freedom to explore this January. To explore what it is that lights you up and when you discover it….DO MORE OF THAT! (Whatever it is)
Do not allow yourself to dive deep into the rabbit hole of destruction that wrecks your entire year before it is started. Make 2018 the year of exploration and see what opens up!
Just a suggestion to take on as we move forward this month.
Happy vibes coming your way!
Much love and success to this new year for you in 2018!
