Last night I tried a Zumba class for the first time, AND I loved it! I’m not a huge fan of exercise although I have come to realize it truly does give me more energy and makes me feel better in general. I actually don’t mind doing it once I’ve started, and I love the idea and concept. It’s the taking the time for it away from all the other stuff, and actually getting myself there that I object to.

Zumba seems like a really modern term for aerobics. Some of the music had a latin influence, and some of the moves were… well, a bit too fluid for this klutz. But it was super fun, and I’m sure I’ll catch on. I worked up a good sweat and went home feeling energized. The instructor is a friend of mine, Michelle Burke. She has a facebook page called Zumba with Michelle if you’re interested. It is every Monday and Thursday from 7-8 PM at Crosspoint Church in Marysville.

I think I liked the social nature of the class, because most of the other forms of exercise involve me and a machine and my iPod or Kindle. It’s quite solitary. It was fun to get together with other women and dance and laugh and have a good time. I need to branch out and try some other new ways to be active.
