I Like to Zumba . . .

I started gozumbaing to Zumba class August of 2013, and since the first class was free I had nothing to lose.  Many months later and now I try to go twice a week if I can.  The reality is I have a desk job, and don’t move as much as I should during the day, which isn’t a good thing.  Hitting this high energy dance class helps me get inspired to move.  While I am far from the best dancer, I always have fun shaking my booty to the music and trying to follow the instructor.  Everyone is encouraged to go at their own pace; the point is to move for the hour, which goes by faster than you would think.  The funny thing is I had a hard time keeping up with going to the gym, but I don’t seem to have the same problem with this class.   I think the best way to get motivated to exercise and move is to find what works the best for you, find something you actually enjoy doing, what you will be  able to keep doing over and over.  If you like to dance, try Zumba or some other dance class; if you like tennis, see if you can find a court where you can play; if you like basketball, go shoot some hoops.  I enjoy the class every week, and seeing many of the same women is a nice motivator as well, since we are in this together.  The instructors are great, and very nice women, so it doesn’t feel like a chore to go week after week.  The hour of Zumba is my time to get moving, and have some fun, while I try to get healthy.

How do you find motivation to get moving?  What activities do you enjoy most to keep active?
