After getting home on Friday, I rushed around my house in a mad scramble to get ready for my first ever “Zumba” class. I’ve been hearing good things about the ‘Latin dance/cardio’ class so thought I would give it a whirl. One not-so-great thing about the particular class that I’m taking however, is that its at 5:30pm on a weekday!
5:30! Couldn’t they make it just a smidgen later, so us commuting suburbanites don’t have to break the speed limit in order to make it to class?
Ah! Anyways, luckily I made it-Wearing half of my work outfit paired with yoga bottoms and worn out shoes. When other people arrived, I also became aware that I was the whitest person in the class! And I don’t mean that in a self deprecating, smart ass way-I mean literally!-everyone else was all tan and buff, while I looked like an extra from a vampire flick. I’ve also not been keeping up to date with my waxing appointments, and when we started throwing our hands up in the air, I soon realized that was also the hairest chick there too! So basically, this is what I looked like at the back of the class:
LOL. My worn out shoes were also not my friend and it was difficult not to slip and fall on my ass. But despite all the fashion faux pas and being REALLY tired by the end of it, Zumba was fun! The instructor was hilarious too, wiggling his faa-bulous little Cuban butt and making jokes. You could tell all the ladies in the class really loved him.
So, if you’re somewhat coordinated and looking for a good way to work up a sweat and don’t mind cheesy Ricky Martin music, Zumba just might be for you!
