*zumba*

4 Jul

hola chicas y chicos!

yesterday, i went to my first ever zumba class! i entered the studio trying to keep my expectations low- i’d heard so much about this activity, i didn’t want to play it up in my head and eventually be disappointed. seriously, when people say “omg it was so amazing!”, “it’s like- so much fun!” i would always think along the lines of “people, relax pls… it’s a workout, how much genuine, real fun could it actually be?” turns out it really is so much fun. whilst sweating, trying to keep up with the otherworldly instructor, (seriously, she must be an alien to be so graceful and sexy while teaching a workout) i was grinning like the cheshire cat and laughing for the whole hour. and not only because i felt like these girls

my reflection in the mirror while doing zumba

 but also because of the latin music and the general feel-good-vibe of all the girls there- it was awesome!

At first I was like “I’m so gonna make a fool out of myself”, but upon closer inspection, there was a reeeally wide range of capabilities in that studio. Some girls seemed to have been doing zumba for a while, others were even worse off than me (muahaha). But everyone was smiling and laughing, and simply didn’t care. I like it.

the class was mixed! *google pic- not us*

what i liked even more, is the amount of sweat i exuded. and i’m not talking about a glistening forehead- no, this was full on- fuck-it’s-getting-in-my-eyes sweating! for clarification purposes, a list of body parts that sweat when doing zumba:

– face
– neck
– arms
– chest
– stomach
– back
– shoulders
– legs, including knees and shins. Yes, I didn’t know they could sweat either.
– butt

body parts that don’t sweat:

– nails
– ponytail

if you’re looking for a fun, feel-good workout, that doesn’t feel like a workout but like a really hardcore dance class- look no more, and go sign up at your nearest zumba center.
