I recently joined the local gym (insert big cringe here), and thought i would take advantage of their classes that they offer. Well, one class in particular that I’ve wanted to try out in a long time is Zumba. It’s been highly recommended to me by a bunch of people so i thought I would finally take the plunge and give it a go. And why haven’t I done this Zumba stuff sooner??? Truly was the most fun workout. I was a-swaying with my hips, a-swinging with my arms in every direction and a-losing my balance but crikey it was brilliant! Admittedly, my rhythmic skills really got some stares heading my way, not in the way that I would hope. Perhaps my moves are just too funky, but with a glance around at the rest of the class, I could see that I wasn’t the only one lacking with aesthetically pleasing moves. The vibe exuding throughout the whole class was positive and I felt that my cheeks got a workout in as I was smiling away for the whole 55 minutes.
So with this new found hobby, I was really excited to tell my car pool pal about all this Zumba. As an avid and dedicated gamer, he suggested that I should bring Zumba into my home and buy the Zumba Rush kinect game for my Xbox 360, that had been released in February of this year. It was obviously something that had me thinking as there are potentially a lot of perks that could come of this. My most sneaky thought was that I could practice my Zumba moves at home and really look like I know what I’m doing, prepping up to strut my stuff in my next class. Another pro spirals from the idea that I could invite the my friends over for a girly night, plug in the Zumba game and blend up some margartias and BAM – you have a salsa party right in your front room. My last, and final “thumbs up” goes toward the fact that I can Zumba, in my front room, with no one watching and I could Zumba away in my underwear. Yeah – I said it!
Now, the only downfall that I can think about is … paying $50! Obviously, its not that bad, but when I walk past the game every time I’m in Target with a basket full of stuff, it’s hard to replace all that stuff with just one item (please note, that when I go to Target I aim to spend under $50 because let’s face it, I could easily spend more in that place – so I need to pace myself).
Solution! Don’t go to Target, and go to a gamestore – Okay!
