I did Zumba for the first time this morning. In reality, I was in a room where other people did Zumba. I mostly stood in the back flailing my arms trying not to get stepped on. Some of those women went into some kind of Zumba high. All around me hair flew in circles, hips gyrated, voices screamed in excitement, “Whoa” or “Zumba! Zumba!”
I’ve never seen people so excited to exercise. I’m just glad I made it out of there in one piece. Friday, I’m off to try spinning. I figure I’ll be on a bike that remains stationary. There’s a smaller chance I’ll get injured by over exuberant fitness freaks. Wish me luck.
