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!!” 🙂

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

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,

Tammy (Your friendly neighborhood Zumba Instructor)shake it till you make it-1

Want a Dose of Happy Today?

This blog is not to discount the work of therapists by the picture post attached.  This is a reminder of the benefits of fitness to your overall health and can be a cost-effective enhancement to your overall health.

Fitness provides an emotional and mental release as well as physical benefits.  When you are raising your heart rate, listening to great music, moving your molecules around which you do in fitness programs you are also supporting yourself emotionally and mentally.

It is not to discount the work that one may be doing with therapy, however, imagine what benefit you could provide to your life by starting out even taking 1-2 classes a week of anything fitness related. Never get stopped by thinking by trying one thing and it didn’t work out that now all fitness programs are not for you!

KEEP GOING! 

If I would have stopped at cycling, swimming, running, lifting weights, boot camps…..I NEVER would have discovered my love of Zumba.  If I would have stopped at yoga or hot yoga….I NEVER would have discovered Laughter Yoga!

KEEP AND OPEN MIND!

Walking to work is great however, discovering something in the fitness realm that may include other people can be exhilarating! A way to get fit, release healthy endorphins and meet other happy healthy like-minded people! It really is a win win!

FIND YOUR PASSION AND DO LOTS OF IT! 🙂
