Do You Get the Mid Week Blues?

Never fear! Zumba Basics is HERE!!! 🙂

Okay, yes. I do get quite excited about this.

Here is why….many years ago now (before I found Zumba) I used to find Tuesdays to be a very long day and by the time Wednesday rolled around, I would be feeling super tired and wishing for the weekend….since discovering the great world of Zumba AND doing a Zumba class every wednesday, my energy to kick it through the week has been AMAZING!

I personally just want everyone to have amazing days and incredible weeks and now that we have moved into this uber cool spot of High Park Brewery, it has made it even MORE FUN (if that was even possible)!!

This location is especially great for those who have friends or family who want to join you but may or may not want to actually do the class for now.  They can come, sit on the patio or inside, enjoy a cold pint or soda, listen to the music and pick up on the energy whether they are doing the class or not! Pretty cool!

You get to do your fitness class AND spend time with those you care about! OR, if you just need a night away from everyone, this is just a really awesome place to get your groove on with some pretty spectacular ladies!!

SEE YOU SOON!!!

Here are the Deets:

Wednesdays @ 6:45pm  High Park Brewery (839 Runnymede Road)

Come a few minutes early to get signed in!

Cost: $20 gets you the class & a ticket for a pint of beer or soda after class!

Wear comfy clothes you don’t mind sweating in! 🙂 And Runners are a must!

Be ready to have fun and let loose!

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

WANTED! Age 27….Where The Arm Jiggles Began!

Have you ever been waving good-bye to someone and although your hand has stopped waving….your arm is still clearly going….on its own….without you moving at all?

Yes….me too (me three if you include that jiggle that is still going!)

The dreaded arm jiggle your mother (or your friends mother or the movies) warned you about.

I found mine at age 27. Funny enough, I remember watching the movie Something About Mary and Cameron Diaz discovering her arm jiggle at age 27.  Coincidence? I think not…. 😉

I was doing a chin up at the gym in front of a mirror and when I went up it was fine….coming down I saw it….it was like a movie being played in slow motion…jiggle….jiggle….jiggle…

I instantly dropped my arms to my side and yelled across the gym to my friend…”IT’S HERE!!!” Then I proceeded to raise my arm and let the jiggling begin so I could see the look of horror on my friends face. (and all the other onlookers in the gym….many women’s arms hit their sides that day)

Arm jiggle has confined women for far too long and put us in t-shirts/long sleeves rather than the tank tops and strapless dresses that we so deserve!

NEVER FEAR!! THE ARM JIGGLE REMEDY IS HERE!

I found the arm jiggle remedy!! ZUMBA TONING!! It is that simple.  60 minutes of latin pumping music and you dancing with 1-2 lbs weights….if you stay consistent to taking your class each week you can radically slow down that arm jiggle and in some cases, stop it all together like I did!

I have come to enjoy the act of waving again, tank tops are my friends and the extra benefit…..it also supports that bikini body you want to maintain or get back to!

Seriously, you really CAN have it all with Zumba Fitness!

Come join us for a complimentary class and one of the following:

Zumba Sentao Tuesdays 7pm or Wednesdays 9:30am (That is using a chair, killer core/ab workout)

Zumba Basics Wednesdays 6:45pm (Dance till you just can’t dance no more! WOOHOO!)

Zumba Toning Thursdays 7pm or Fridays 9:30am (Eliminate the jiggle class!)
