Debra Got Her Booty Kicked!

Zumba – NOT your Mother’s aerobics class!

Ok, I dragged my sorry butt to work today after enduring the personal humiliation that was my first Zumba class last night at The Studio in Granite Bay. Sheila, our instructor, has moves that I not only did not know existed, but her energy and abilities were jaw dropping!

First of all, what exactly is Zumba? In a nutshell, it’s an aerobics class which incorporates samba, mambo, salsa, cha-cha and hip hop dance moves into one rockin' class.

Shelia kept the lights low to set the “mood” but in my opinion the lights are low so that we all don’t completely embarrass ourselves in front of each other. We were a class of mostly newbies, thank goodness. We all spent the hour trying to figure out why when our brains were telling our hips to move one way, our bodies refused to cooperate. I kept trying to shimmy and shake my booty but I’m afraid I just looked like I was having some sort of horrible seizure.

I, however, have never been one to give up, and I am determined to try again! Shelia said it does take time to conquer Zumba, but it’s worth it because once your body starts to listen to your brain the class becomes more and more fun and a work out that you definitely remember the next morning!

The Studio will have a regular complement of Zumba classes starring Sheila!! Check it out – but don’t look at me. My brain hasn’t yet sent the message to my booty.
