Hardly new to the exercise world, Zumba, or latin dance, is an excellent way to have fun and burn serious calories with friends. Personally, I have absolutely no rhythm on the dance floor. I am the girl you see while walking by a Zumba class who is turning the wrong way, doing the wrong moves and has no clue what she is doing.
Regardless of my struggles, Zumba is so much fun. For girls like me who are stuck in a rut of just running on the treadmill or or lifting weights, it is a fantastic way to use different muscles and loosen up.
Ohio University’s Ping Fitness Center offers free Zumba classes each week. It does not matter if you are a beginner or experienced dancer. The moves are relatively easy (even if you can’t keep up like me) and the instructors do a good job of keeping the class together and engaged.
So go grab a few friends and be ready to dance. I guarantee you will walk out with a smile on your face along with some sweat.
