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!!!

Tonight We Dance!

This morning I got up early (5:45am) in anticipation of it being Wednesday….I love Wednesdays…one of my favorite days of the week for so many reasons!

A big reason today that I am full of energy so early is that I get to see so many of you tonight! Tonight is Zumba Basics at High Park Brewery! Our new location lights me up!

For anyone who is not clear what Zumba Basics is…..it is a latin cardio fitness program that incorporates in music and moves from around the world. I take you on a musical journey of dance (with 3-4 moves per song to keep it easy to follow) from around the world.

We could be doing anything from bachata, salsa, swing, african, hip hop, reggatone, tango, cumbia, pop, brazilian, you name it and you will most likely find it in this class.

It is not about getting it “right”, it is about moving your body and feeling the rhythm in your soul.

I have been teaching now for nearly a decade and before that was a client for a few years with Zumba. In my opinion, this is one of the most fun ways to work out without feeling like you are doing a work out but your sweat and smile at the end let you know that you did!

If you miss a move we are doing, don’t worry about it! Accidental solo’s are the best! We have no mirrors in the Brewery so only you know if you missed it and it’s a great way to train yourself to not be so hard on you! 🙂

ANYONE truly can do Zumba!  If you can move your body in any way, you can do Zumba! I have clients in wheelchairs that do Zumba!  It is one of the best programs out there that is universal to anyone and everyone being able to participate.

Take a chance! I invite you to come out and give it a try!  

After class, enjoy a beer, water or soda and relax with an awesome group of people!  It is the perfect way to spend mid-week!

Personal Stories

Superman is My Hero!

Anyone who knows me well….knows that my home is full of Superman items and a few other super heroes.  Yes, I am aware that I am a grown up. I also feel that it is okay to NOT live in a “grown up” home! 🙂

For 3 years now, ever since I saw an image of this…I have wanted my OWN upside down Christmas tree being held up by no other than my main man Superman. My husband and stepdaughters have put up with my constant conversations over the past 3 years of how I was going to do this and what would I need….I am so appreciative that they have put up with my constant discussions about this.

This year, I finally jumped with no real net of how I was going to do it but said this is the year! I researched fake trees, went from store to store searching.  I bought cable wire (too heavy), picture frame wire (too complicated) and finally settled on zip ties and fishing line!

My husband agreed to help me hoist the tree into place.  At the very last moment he said “I don’t think this is gonna work.”

My response…. “It is gonna work! It HAS TO WORK!! I can’t go another year dreaming about this! Anything is possible!”

Being my hubby is AMAZING, that answer was good enough for him and he hoisted it up and zipped it into place!  It took lots of love and a whole lot of zip ties and fishing line but this year…My Super Hero gets to hold up our Christmas Tree!!

SO PUMPED FOR THE FAMILY TO SEE IT!!!

Do you have a unique decoration you would like to share? Please do!48178032_10161353282660387_9067714579437453312_n

Failure Is Only A Word. Believe You Can!

Staying positive even through the rough times can make all the difference in what you are out to accomplish.  Yesterday I watched a documentary on Muhammad Ali (I actually watched three) a.k.a. Cassius Clay.  One of the greatest boxers the world has ever seen.

One of the things that really struck me about him was how positive he stayed and how he talked to himself about what he was able to do and who he was.  He never saw himself as someone who would not succeed and there were a few times that he did not succeed but it didn’t stop him.  With failure came more training and perseverance.

There is a lesson to be learned in who he was. See yourself as bigger than you may know yourself to be and BELIEVE you are!  Do not let failures knock you out. Get back up and keep moving forward.

I keep this quote below in my bathroom right by my mirror to remind me each day of who I am and it supports me in shifting myself when I feel the “failures” creeping up at me.

Do not let January be the only month you take on your fitness. Get up each day and know that you CAN do it and you will see the results you wish for quickly and easily! No excuses!

Let us support you!

Come join our classes and see what we are all about!16
