Shift in Attitude!

Today is Tuesday, so that means an evening Zumba class.  I was looking forward to it all day.  And then during the drive to the class I couldn’t wait to start moving to the music.  I can hardly believe it!   I can’t remember when I last looked forward to doing exercise like that!  Sometime back in the 1990’s no doubt.

The class was great fun – I can’t believe an hour goes by so quickly.  And despite the fact it was 8 degrees celsius outside (and probably inside too) I was working up a sweat in no time.

 So, if you’re trying to find an exercise that is fun and you can join in with whatever your fitness level, I highly recommend giving Zumba a go.

And if you try it and you’re not too sure – try again with a different instructor.  I am doing classes (including the Curves circuits) with three different instructors.  I really enjoy all the classes – however, the classes are different because of the different personalities of the instructors.  But what they do have in common is fun choreography and infectious rhythms.  Its changed my outlook entirely.  So much so, that I am quite disappointed that the Saturday morning class isn’t on this weekend because of the long weekend. 😦 As I drove home I kept thinking, “What will I do on Saturday????”  And then I realised I can do one of my Zumba DVDs.  No excuses for not moving daily.

So, Zumba or no Zumba, find something you like doing – something that makes you smile.  And before you know it you’ll be looking forward to exercise too.
