Zumba Classes and much more

Start your week off right and get some information about getting and staying fit!
Remember Maria and her previous post on Zumba, the post was about her finding fitness and how it has forever changed her life. Well, she's back and she has more in depth information to share with us! Information about the various classes, how to stay fit at home and a has even left us contact information if we want more advice and tips!

My classes range in age shapes & sizes, which is beautiful.  I think this is what I love most about Zumba® is that even the instructors are different and of all shapes & sizes, women can all relate more to one another.  If you have not tried a Zumba® Fitness class yet, I suggest you visit www.zumba.com and find a class near you.  I also suggest that you try all the classes available in your area till you find the one you click the most with.  Not all classes are the same so it’s up to you the participant to decide and you may like them all, even better because now you have a variety of classes to attend.

As a teen mom I can’t even imagine how hectic your schedule is.  I’m sure there’s plenty on your plate but if you can find a way to fit exercise into your daily schedule you will have the energy you need to deal with a rigorous schedule.  Not to mention the example you are setting for your child, with child obesity on the rise in America it’s important that we maintain active but also make sure our children stay active.  The beauty about Zumba® Fitness is that they now offer programs such as ZumbAtomic which is Zumba® Fitness for kids and many places offer classes where mother and child can participate together, again you can find these classes by visiting www.zumba.com.

If getting out of the house is just not possible at this time, look into home fitness.  There is FitTv available through most cable providers.  You can look into the Zumba® Fitness home workout videos or the video game which you can play along with your child and have fun.  There are home workout videos such as the ones offered by a company called Beachbody.  I have been an Independent Distributor with Beachbody for two years; you have probably seen their infomercials on P90X, INSANITY or Turbo Fire.  Beachbody offers some great fun alternatives and what I love about these programs is that they come complete with a calendar to keep you motivated, measuring tape, elastic resistance bands, a complete cook book you can use as a guide with suggestions on how to grocery shop.  Beachbody offers fun home fitness programs such as Turbo Jam, Shaun T’s Hip Hop Abs as well as Shaun T’s Fit Kids program. 

I would love to hear from you and if you have any questions about any of the programs that I have mentioned, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I believe that fitness can and should be fun! And I am grateful that Zumba® has led me to all those fun programs.
