Hi, I'm Ivy and I Love Zumba® Fitness!
I often say that Zumba® saved my life. I was depressed & grieving after the sudden loss of my mother. I had gained an extra 30 pounds, couldn't fit any of my clothes, and began to feel the negative effects of my weight gain physically. I'd always been very active. I was in the military for 9 yrs, I had been a runner, went to the gym regularly, took martial arts, and kickboxing. However, when I set out to loose the weight I could not seem to get motivated or remain focused. Every fitness class I attended was the "same old thing".
Then I heard about a fitness class called Zumba®. I thought I would give it a try. My first class was amazing. I was so out of shape, I felt like I was gonna die. But, it was so much fun I couldn't stop. The unique thing about Zumba® is that every class is different. It never becomes boring. I found myself looking forward to class every week. It made me laugh, smile, and feel good. Simply put; it made me happy. It had been over a year since I'd felt the feeling of joy
Zumba® is a fitness class, so of course it has many health benefits, but it also has many psychological benefits as well. Plus, its so much fun, you don't realize your actually working out!! This was in 2008. Since then I myself have become an instructor, I feel great, and look the best I ever have in my whole life. (even high school)
