Last year when I was in Australia (July 2010) I used to go to gym with my sister in law in the evenings, and watch MasterChef Australia while I was on the treadmill. This proved to be a blessing because I only ended up gaining 2 kilos during my vacation instead of 5 (woohoo).

I’d always wanted to try out Zumba and they had 2 classes every week. I tried my best to go to as many as I could but either I’d be out “being a tourist” somewhere else at the time of the class or I’d be too tired to go to the gym that day because I’d spent it in Centro walking around and shopping all day, so I ended up going to only 2 or 3 classes.

I’m not very good at aerobics and do better on machine and since I’m not that fit I get exhausted too quickly and end up doing all the moves without the “bounce” so I avoid it. But Zumba was is different, it was fun and I managed to keep up with most of the moves.

This video brings back so many memories…It was one of the dances we did in Zumba…I’m even surprised I still remember all of the moves!

I really wish the gym I go to here in Jordan had Zumba at least once a week, I would totally make time for it. Le sigh.

    VERY NICE!!!! I was thinking of switching my program from machines and strength exercises to classes per recommendations from a trainer (its been almost 2 years and 8 months) I was hesitant but the video sounds sooooo much fun!! We do have zumba in the gym i go to but im not sure if they do the same routine.. this one seems soo much fun LOL! 3n jaaaaaad!

    btw, I think “aspire” has zumba classes but its a bit more expensive than your current gym.. but on the bright side its not that far from the office and from where you live.. ya3ne u’d be saving transportation.

      Cool lucky you. Well I need to finish the year with my current gym before I join a new one, I’m def not going back to that gym after I’m done. My advice if you do take classes take something fun, not just plain old boring aerobics, my favorites are zumba and fight fit…ya3ne with fight fit betfeshe 3’olek mazboot by punching imaginary people..hehehehe.
