Don’t like the Latin style of Zumba®? How about Zumba® with a hip hop spin?? Try this Hip Hop Workout for a change!
Fitness Friday. My favorite blog-day of the week, now that we get to play and discover new fun exercises on Fridays. What are your thoughts on Fitness Friday? Like it? Don’t care for it? Think you’ll use it? I’d love to know your thoughts.
So today, we’re actually playing with one of my absolute favorite ways to workout. ZUMBA®! If you’ve never tried Zumba® before, you’re probably thinking a couple different things:
1) I have zero coordination when it comes to dance
2) Dancing around isn’t going to do anything for me
3) Latin music is not my thing
Well, I have got the thing for you! I’ll tell you something. I’m the most uncoordinated person ever. I have rhythm, but I’m definitely not gifted when it comes to dancing. But it’s all about moving and getting your heart-rate up. And after just a few times, you really start to get a hang of it. The more you start to get the moves, the harder you’re able to work (so don’t judge your sweat-level by your first Zumba® session).
Also, I have gotten some of my best workouts from Zumba® classes. We’re talking, sweat dripping from every inch of my body. Gross right? Totally. But it feels so good all the same!
Now, as for the Latin flair that is the backbone of Zumba®. I’ll be honest: it’s not my favorite. But I’ve been to many Zumba® classes that are more hip-hop focused than Latin. I decided to go through and find some of my favorite hip hop zumba® dances from YouTube and put together awesome 30 minutes of energy and beats!
Get ready to get your sweat on!
