I Love Zumba

When I first moved to the area I discovered Zumba and even changed my schedule to allow me to go to class often. After realizing that I really got the hang of it (I am by NO means a dancer) I decided to get certified to teach. It was a goal of mine last year to get certified to teach. Well let's just say I got the certification, but I never taught. I can't say the opportunity wasn't available to teach, I just never took advantage of it. I've also been a ZIN member since Jan. ($35 a month) and haven't really watched a complete instructional video, but I always listen to the cd's.

Yesterday, CommeCoCo hosted a Zumba event at Mint with One Medical. Let me just say, I had a ball. I even invited two friends out to join in on the fun. As soon as I stepped into Mint I immediately felt the stress roll away.  The atmosphere was luxurious yet zen-like. I surprised myself with how well I kept up seeing as though I haven't attended a class since last year. The instructor, Lola, was very energetic and kept us on our feet (literally). She definitely gave me the push I needed to began to prepare to teach my first class next month.

One Medical graciously supplied everyone in attendance with a 1 year Free Membership (valued at $200). The One Medical team was super nice and answered any and every question we had. Yola also supplied us with a smoothie/yogurt happy hour. They were super tasty and fresh.

It was great to interact and meet other bloggers. We don't just get dressed up to talk fashion, we can also get dressed down to get healthy!!!
