So it’s half-term week and I thought that I’d use the extra time to increase the amount of exercise I’m doing. I’ve already taken part in my first parkrun event and now tonight I’m going to step things up another gear with a new Zumba class.
If you’ve never tried Zumba before, you ought to find a class and give it a go. It is a dance-based exercise class based on Latin/Salsa/Merengue/Cha Cha dance steps. It’s great fun and a great work out that’s easy to adapt for different fitness levels. I used to regularly attend Zumba classes at my old gym. However, on joining my current gym they didn’t run any at a time to suit me. But now they’ve started a new class and it’s on right before the Body Pump class I’ve been attending for the past 6/7 weeks.
I didn’t want to give up the Body Pump class as Mr FFF has been enjoying going to that with me, but I do really want to take up Zumba again. So I’ve decided to go to both. This will not only earn me more activity points and boost my weight loss, but it will also increase my stamina and overall cardio fitness. And I’m pretty certain to sleep well tonight!
Wish me luck!
