At zumba last night we had some new people. Waiting outside in line were two middle aged couples, who clearly didn't know what they were getting into. Most people are in sweat pants and vests (though one girl was in a most ill advised bikini top and wrap around skirt - with THOSE thighs?!), and it's mostly girls. One of the men was in jeans, a clean white shirt and smart white trainers. The other man had made more of an effort in jogging pants and a t-shirt. The women had sandals on, which aren't great for leaping around. Anyway, they followed us in and stood at the back. The man in the shirt legged it half way through the first song! The others made a game attempt and did last the hour, and one of the women told me afterwards that they'd dragged their husbands along in an attempt to "do something together". I thought you took up line dancing or salsa lessons if you are trying to spice up your marriage, not sweaty jumpy zumba! The poor bloke, I suspect he will be having zumba dreams for quite a while to come :)


  1. I've heard an awful lot about Zumba, but to be honest, I've always been a bit nervous about dance, especially since my Freshman roommate dragged me to her hip hop classes. We were the only ones.....and our coach's dance team members would come and watch us (as would everyone else, since we were in the of the clear, plexiglass raquetball courts :S

  2. Ha ha that sounds like torture!! Zumba has taken over everywhere over here, it is good fun, a mix of different dance styles and it is hard work but you don't realise you are working so hard which is good! Bit like an exercise disco :)
