My Zumba Girls

I started Zumba about 3 months ago. It is the best exercise since my days of dance and I am addicted.
I go to the walking class twice a week which is 8 miles a week. It is so easy since we walk and do different exercies with our arms as well as leg lifts and it is all done to music which is so motivational. Then I do Zumba gold three times a week an hour per class. Zumba Gold is not as intense as Zumba. It was designed for those that don't or can't jump or squat.

So all in all I am working out three hours and walking 8 miles per week and I don't even notice because I am having so much fun!

For those of you that hate exercise, Zumba is the answer. I have tried walking outside but we have so much rain I don't want to walk in the cold rain. I bought a TreadClimber and it sat in my garage for over a year and i didn't use it much because it is cold in my garage. Whatever the excuse, it did not work for me. Zumba does. Do I sound like a commercial? No really....it is the best exercise since I used to dance disco years ago.
These are my Zumba instructors Christie and Cindy. They are two of four sisters that own and operate and instruct at Coos Cardio Party here in Coos Bay. My body is toning up and I am losing weight.
I love ZUMBA and these girls.
