I just realized that it's Fitness Friday. I had no post planned for today, so lets see what I can pull out in 10 minutes. (Really I have less than that, because I have to leave in 10 minutes, I'm in my housecoat, and I need to get my lunch packed up and my boots tied tight, 10 points if you know what I'm talking about there....)
ZUMBA. I feel slightly bad talking about this, because Zumba class hasn't seen me in quite awhile. You see, I have an hour commute, and usually on Wednesday evenings I stay in the city late and go to hot yoga, so staying late another night to go to Zumba just isn't something I want to be doing. But, I used to go to Zumba every week.
The key to Zumba is having a good instructor. I have tried out numerous instructors, and some just don't get you moving enough. If I'm not sweating at the end of a Zumba class, something is wrong. Sure, there are always people in the class who can't handle big movements, but that's why the move should be shown at different levels of difficulty. If you have a good instructor though, Zumba is an awesome workout. Plus it's fun. It doesn't matter that you look like an idiot who can't dance while doing it. We all look like idiots who can't dance.
I also have the Zumba game for my playstation. It's not bad. It has a bunch of different 20 minute or 45 minute workouts. When I'm at home, I prefer the 20 minute workout, because I get bored of dancing in my basement after that. And if Ryan comes downstairs I always stop because I'm pretty sure I'm embarrassing myself.
So there is my fitness suggestion for today!. This link up has been brought to you by Going With The Flow.
