That pesky thing called weight has a habit of creeping up on you. I started to loose a little weight last year and then found out I needed major surgery. A year ago this month, I had my operation and then spent the next 4 months off work, with most of that time immobile. I put the weight that I lost and a lot more straight back on.
As soon as I started back to work in April and getting on with life in general, I did start to loose a few pounds. We always eat healthily but, I am impatient, and needed something to ‘make things happen’ with my body.
I wasn’t sure what Zumba was but I’d heard of it, went on Google, found Emma’s local class in Solihull and started Zumbering my body in July time under Emma’s guidance and I LOVE IT. I have lost 11 pounds in weight since I started but, more importantly, my body shape has changed and family, friends and colleagues have noticed the difference. I still have a way to go, but my body is much more flexible and having lost a dress size (with another one on the horizon), I feel better than I have done in years.
What a great way to spend an hour, dancing and exercising to super music and having fun with a lovely group of ladies (I am reliably informed that Emma’s classes are rather more demanding than others). Age doesn’t matter at all, I’m in my 50’s, but we have a very diverse age range and these classes would be just as effective for men. Emma’s Zumba class is the kick start both me and my body needed so thank you to Emma, the lovely ladies of Solihull and I look forward to seeing you at the next class.
