I didn’t make it to the gym today. 😦 I am the webmaster for a local non-profit, and one of my responsibilities is sending an email newsletter a few times a year. I absolutely love doing it, but last night it kept me up until almost midnight. So I knew I wasn’t going to be waking up at 5:30 AM to hit the gym today! Exercise is definitely important, but nowhere near as important as a good night’s sleep. Truth.
Tomorrow morning, I am planning on getting up bright and early for RPM, though. Have you ever been to RPM? It’s a Les Mills class offered at my gym. The first time I ever went was last week, and all I can tell you is that it kicked my butt. So of course I am going back, hehe.
So let me ask you… What’s your take on Zumba? Are you a fan? Have you never been? If you have been, do you feel like a colossal oaf like I do?
I absolutely love Zumba, but it makes me feel so uncoordinated. Especially when they do the hip thrust moves. There are Zumba classes at my gym almost every day, but I am hooked on Mondays because the instructor, Lorena, is amazing. She is also a serious “Woo Girl”. Here’s her picture that I swiped from her Facebook page:
She’s so freaking cute and upbeat, and she creates such an awesome atmosphere in her class. There are a ton of regulars in this class because Lorena is so awesome. She shouts “Woo!” and the class shouts “Woo!” right back at her. I’ve never heard anything like it. She’s also the best Zumba instructor I’ve ever had, hands down. She can turn to face the class and immediately switch to doing the moves as a mirror image. I’ve had instructors that can’t do the moves mirror image at all, let alone within two beats of turning around.
So Mondays are Zumba, and Wednesdays are RPM. Thursday I’m going to check out Body Attack, which is another Les Mills class and comes highly recommended by Lindsay.
(haha Woo Girls — does anyone else watch How I Met Your Mother?)
Oh P.S., come back tomorrow for the latest “Don’t Be Cruel” post with a giveaway!
