Benefits of Movement

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! 🙂

Benefits of Movement

Fitness Fun Made Simple!

The benefit of a Zumba class can be really amazing for your body.  Have you ever noticed how fit dancers are?  The dance world is a fitness in itself and millions of people worldwide take advantage of the benefits of dance each week.

In a Zumba class (and I am speaking from how I teach) the music will vary from class to class.  Potentially on a Tuesday you will be doing salsa, Bollywood, swing and then on Wednesday you are in full reggaetone, cumbia, calypso to a Thursday doing toning with bachata, samba, electro-dance….. who knows what the mix could be AND it is all fun!

Often times we reach the end of the class and everyone looks at each other like “did an hour seriously just pass by??” …as sweat is pouring off us and everyone is smiling from ear to ear!

Music always allows all the billions of thoughts that pass through our brains to slow down and listen to something different, even if for an hour.  With the music taking care of all your thoughts….your body is free to move to the beat.  Often, we have jobs where we sit for long periods of time or jobs that can be quite taxing in lifting or walking long distances.  Whichever style job you have, your body needs to move freely.  You will find after taking a class and losing yourself in the music AND allowing your body to move freely, all your energy shifts and you will left with a sense of happy endorphins coursing through your veins!  What a cool experience!

What could your day or evening look like if you could reap all the benefits from a Zumba class?

Come find out for yourself!
