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

Ramp Up Your Fitness in December!

Now is the time to ramp up your fitness! Yes! I said DO MORE!

Here is why…..

With all the cookies, candy canes, extra office luncheons and drinks you are consuming more carbs and rich foods and if you take your foot off the fitness gas your body will have a tougher time responding to getting fit in january.

In fact, if you keep up with your fitness now or add an extra class, your body may subconsciously be telling you the healthier, less sugary, less rich foods and more juice or water is what it really wants and it will totally keep you on track to win with your 2015 fitness goals.

I am not saying don’t go out and enjoy this holiday, I am saying take care of that awesome vessel of yours by taking an extra class to curb the temptations!

Ps. If you come do ZUMBA you will not only get a GREAT work out but you will pick up some NEW MOVES to take to the office party! Woohoo! WIN  WIN!

Classes are running FIVE DAYS A WEEK!

Do You Sing In Your Car?

Are you someone who cranks your music in the car and sings at the top of your lungs?

I commend you!

As long as you are not causing any car accidents while belting out your version of Shake it Off, it is perfectly healthy to let go at the end of the day(or to start it!) with some good old fashion car karaoke!

This starts the healthy endorphins flowing AND to REALLY take your natural healthy release to a whole new level…pack that car with your workout clothes and sing your way right over to Zumba Class!

Once you arrive and get changed, the music in the studio will begin pumping and (at least in my classes) you can sing away while you dance to some of your favorite songs! (whether you know the words or language, just sing it baby!)

See, singing in your car just gets all the juices flowing then when you take it to the next level and on to the dance floor….LOOK OUT!!! HOT MOMMA COMING THROUGH! 🙂

Just saying…may as well complete your day by shakin’ what your momma gave you to a merengue or a reggaetone or some soca! Woot Woot!

Come try a class on me!
