Yes, the title is spelled correctly, haha!
For most my pregnancy with Vicky, and all my pregnancy with Maggy, my mom, sister and I were doing a once a week Zumba class! It was taking place at our local church and was free (with a boz available for donations), which was great motivation for me since we live on a very tight budget at present.
We LOVED it! I was hesitent at first, but once we started it was sO much fun! It felt great to move, work up a sweat, and just dance with a great group of ladies!
Me and Maggy with our instructor, Veronika
Then last fall, we got the horrible news that our zumba instructor was going to be sayong good bye to our group as she alrwady was working a full time job, working at a gym couple nights a week, was moving, had a husband and daughter she needed time with, and so many volunteer positions she was doing with her zumba and bali-X! We cried. My mom, me, my sister… we were so sad! We LOVED Zumba!
So we just haven’t had anything for a long time now.
I had my T-Tapp program for working out at homeh, but really wanted some sort of easy to follow dance program like what we had with Zumba.
My sister did too, apparently!
She was looking for zumba videos on YouTube, and happened across a GREAT group called “Refit.” They do dance fitness pretty much identical to Zumba. With fun music and songs, easy to advance moves, and great energy!
Vicky and I did the 1st song of this playlist today: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdcV9m4XMIgQ6idCBApZJC6T5dAdeP
Cecilia is a great one to start with! Definitely focus on the foot work first, once you have that down you can work on the arms.
Vicky was able to just dance around me giggling while i worked on getting the foot work down. So even the toddler got a bit of a workout, haha!
And because we just did it off YouTube, its FREE!
