Let’s Get Ready To Zumba!!!!

Yes, I meant zumba; not rumba. What is zumba you ask? It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health. If you have not taken a zumba class, you need to try it just once; you will become hooked. This is exercise that does not feel like exercise because you are having fun. Can you guess how many calories a person can burn by doing zumba? Approximately 600-1,000 calories (depending on a person’s current weight) can be burned during an hour class. That is almost the same amount of calories burned by a person who is 155lbs if they run for an hour (http://www.nutristrategy.com/caloriesburned.htm). If I had to choose between zumba and running, zumba would be numero uno! Zumba is not dedicated to a specific age group, body type or level of dancing skills; anyone can do it. When I participated in my first zumba class, I […]

Grab A Friend and Go For A Walk

There are many ways to get your body moving and one of my favorites is to walk. You can walk fast, slow or even a slight jog (hmmm guess that is not considered walking) but you get my drift. You can walk around the mall, walk around your job or walk on a treadmill (I call that walking nowhere).

In 2009 my friend Candice and I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in New York City. This was an opportunity for us to support a worthy cause, exercise and have girl talk. It is truly amazing how many topics can be discussed in two hours. After a two hour (3.1 miles) walk, most novice walkers would […]

This Doesn’t Feel Like Exercise . . . But It Is

In the blog “It’s Time to Get Healthy Part 1&2”, I mentioned three beautiful women who inspired me to work towards improving my health. Sonia, Nikki, and Ty are the owners of GoDiva Studio in Bloomfield, NJ. GoDiva Studio is an exotic dance studio that specializes in pole, belly and erotic fitness dance classes. Their mission is to empower women to own their sensuality using an alternative approach to fitness. When GoDiva Studio had their grand opening, their potential clients had an opportunity to attend all of the classes that were offered at the studio for $20. Each attendee participated in a mini GoBelly, GoVixen, GoJiggle, GoZumba and GoPole class and they were all awesome. Sidebar: I must confess that I am not one with the pole. All I can do is wrap my leg around it or hold on to it and spin. As far as climbing . . […]
