I thought I would share some of our Zumba videos with everyone. After all, Gina Ann says that I am now officially a Zumba addict. I sure look pretty official with all my Zumba gear. 😉 Let me show you my addiction…
NOTE: If you can’t see any videos, you’re probably reading this from Facebook Notes. Click on this link to go to our blog.
Here are some videos from the Zumbathon at Genesis West Central last Sunday. This one was taken during Jill’s segment. Her Zumba style is low impact and the choreography is a lot simpler than Amie’s or Gina’s. Liz and Amie are looking particularly sexy in this video. Way to go, ladies!
Here’s another one from Jill’s portion of the Zumbathon.
This is one of Amie’s slower songs. It’s kind of fun, though. I like that she does funky endings at the end of her routines. This is one of my favorites.
This one is a fast one. I might need new workout shoes because all the trots in Que Te Pica make my feet hurt. =P
This is the one with the V hops. You’ll hear her calling it out in the video.
This is the extra fast Hella Decale. LOL. That was not intentional. I guess Gina didn’t realize that Amie speeds up her songs. So we ended up doing Hella Decale at a faster pace than normal. Anyway, you can see from these examples that you can Zumba at different levels or intensities. Amie’s and Gina’s classes are pretty intense.
I remember the very first time I did Amie’s class (granted I was “puke drunk” the night before; amazing that I wasn’t too hung over to do class), I was worn out after the very first song. I was like, “This is the warm up?” By the third song, I thought I was going to die. You get used to it after a while, though. I actually prefer Amie’s and Gina’s classes these days. Other classes don’t feel like much of a workout by comparison. Anyway, Amie is off for a bit while she recovers from surgery. I just want to let her know that we miss her and wish her a speedy recovery and we eagerly await her return. =)
By the way, if you are intimidated by all of the choreography, fear not. Gina Ann is doing a Basics of Zumba Class at Genesis East Central on Tuesday, April 5, at 6:45 PM. She’ll teach the basics of salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton in a laid back, slower pace. She’ll also show high and low impact versions of moves so you can choose the intensity that suits you best. I think it’s going to be a great class.
Don’t worry if you’re not a Genesis Health Clubs member. They’re doing a special right now where you can pay $20 for an entire month of Zumba. I think it’s a really good deal because drop in classes are usually $6 a pop. Even if you only go once a week during that month, you’re still saving $4. The best part is that you can Zumba 6 times a week if you want. There’s a Zumba class at one of the Genesis locations every single day of the week (except for Fridays). So if you decide to make all of the Zumba classes, at $6 each class, you’re saving about 85% of what you’d normally pay for drop in classes elsewhere. This deal is too good to pass up!
Enjoy the fabulous weather we’re having and hope to see you at Zumba!
