Last night, Brad and I were at the gym and I had already been working out for about an hour when I saw that a Zumba class was about to start. Our gym has quite a few classes and they are all free for members.
Anyway, I really wanted to take the class to say that I've tried it because I've had so many friends tell me I need to try it. I also wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try something that is so NOT me. Let me just tell you, I have NO rhythm. I am not a dancer AT ALL. Last night just reaffirmed that for me.
I made sure I was in the back row and I'm so glad I was. I could hardly follow anything at all. The teacher never taught the steps; she just did it and expected the class to try their hardest to follow -- which a lot of people could. I need to be taught the steps first.
I cannot move at 50 mph to a dance that I have never done before. I mean, she was going SO fast. Ah, if only Brad was recording me, I could have won America's Funniest Home Videos. LOL! Not to mention, I was the fattest girl in the class. I could keep up physically because I am used to working hard and sweating my tush off now but I just could not follow the steps. Needless to say, I don't think I'll be taking that class any time soon.
I'm more than happy to do weights and cardio. :)
I'm very proud of myself for staying in there the whole hour and trying to follow the dances to the best of my ability and for stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new. So, for all of my friends who have been wanting me to try Zumba, I did.
