The Best Things In Life Make You Sweaty!

How true is that statement?!

Pretty true if you ask me! In this case in particular, I am talking about getting your “sweat on” dancing to amazing music and just letting your body move and groove however it wants to!

If you have never tried this, I invite you to give it a go in the comfort of your own home. DO NOT TRY THIS IN FRONT OF A MIRROR! If you do, I assert, you will only start to judge and assess the way you move and make up all sorts of things rather than just getting lost in a good song that makes you feel amazing to move to!

I was a “private dancer” for many years….aka….dancing in my home where nobody could see me.  If you are worried about letting loose in public, this truly is a great place to start.

The next thing to do is to FIND YOUR TRIBE! 

What does this mean?

All this means is finding a group of people, who like yourself, just want to be able to move and de-stress throughout the week. This is a non-judgmental group that just wants to get lost in the music….maybe hoot and holler a little bit….make up moves from time to time on the spot…and learn a few new moves from an instructor.

Where could you find this “tribe”?

Every Wednesday night at 6:45pm a group of AMAZING FUN NON-JUDGMENTAL people come together at High Park Brewery to let loose and shake all the cares and worries away for one hour!  Oh, it is also known as a Zumba Basics class led by….ME! 🙂

The people who come are AWESOME! There are no mirrors so you can just get your groove on, laugh, play and enjoy yourself!  Do not worry about getting it “right”. There is NO right way to dance and de-stress.  The only way you can do this one hour class wrong is if you stand in the corner and quite literally just “stand” there.

I highly recommend you move and however you move is PERFECT!

We have TWO classes left of 2019! Tomorrow and Wednesday December 18th, both start at 6:45pm.  Being we are in a brewery too and not just ANY brewery but one that makes the BEST BEER in Toronto, you can enjoy a cold brew and meet some really great people too!

It is a WIN WIN! What a way to end 2019!  Come do something just for YOU! And bring friends if you like! The more the merrier!  SEE YOU WEDNESDAY!

Summer is Commmminnnngggg!!!!

Okay…I may be a little premature in saying this, however, at some point it must show up!

Summer always does!

That being said, why not get a jump-start on feeling great inside and out by coming out to “shake what your momma gave ya!” at a local zumba class!

No need to get a gym membership or feel intimidated by equipment and weightlifters.  The only thing you need to bring is water and maybe a towel to wipe down after class because one thing I 100% promise…WE GONNA SWEAT!

The location is fun and community oriented, the ladies are awesome and welcoming. We do not play games like in high school, we all just come out for a good time, to get lost in the music, have some laughs and walk away feeling awesome.

If that sounds good to you and you want to come join us, please do!

2352 St. Clair Avenue West in the Party Room at Oscar Romero.  See! It is ACTUALLY called the Party Room!! HOW MUCH FUN IS THAT??!!!

Classes are Wednesdays at 6:45pm, Thursdays at 7:00pm and Fridays at 9:30am!

Check out the schedule for any changes and RSVP to hold your spot!

SEE YOU SOON!!!

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
