The time of year is upon us where gift giving is a daily conversation, trees are brought in doors, plans are made with family and friends, parties almost every weekend. Merry cheer is in the office, shops, schools, everywhere you turn…..but what if this season is not a time where you see the good or the happy that is happening all around you?
For some people this is more of a difficult time of year than one of celebration. The level of stress some people deal with is quite high. People may be struggling with the extra cost financially it is to give gifts, they may be alone this time of year, whatever it is, we do not necessarily know what someone may be dealing with and we should always be mindful of what others have going on whether they tell us or not.
For those of you who may be dealing with something or find this time of year stressful, taking on a fitness class may improve you emotional well-being to the holidays as well as your physical well-being. When we exercise, and in my opinion to latin music just rocks, we release healthy endorphins that not only will burn calories and have you physically feel better but you emotional well-being can dramatically improve. In a group fitness class you are with other people, you are moving to the music, laughing and enjoying yourself where you can let go of all those “thoughts” that have this season be potentially tough for you.
Give yourself the gift of a group fitness class. A Zumba Class!
At our studio at 2389B St. Clair Ave West, Toronto, we are offering your first class FREE. There is no pressure to purchase anything. We have great deals for the holiday season if you see it as something you want to continue on with. All ages 16 years old and up are welcome. Our class age varies and our classes are easy to follow. It is more important to us that you move to the music rather than being stuck trying to learn choreography, so we keep it simple.
The rules in our classes are also simple:
- As long as you are moving your body, you are doing it right! Just move!
- If we are doing a move & it does not feel good when you do it, don’t do it. Move how it feels good for you!
- Smile and laugh lots! There are soooo many benefits to having a good time and letting your face and mind know you are! 😉
- Sing along if you know it! 🙂
Life is going to go on whether you are happy or sad….choose HAPPY! It looks GREAT on you! Let us know how we can support you! You are not alone!
