Zumba, Fitbloggin and Me! (Video Post)

I have spoken about my love of Zumba several times here on Cutie Booty Cakes. But I really don't think ya'll understand. So, without further ado, here is a video of me shaking my money maker at Fitbloggin, doing Zumba with a group of I'd say almost 100 women with an amazing instructor, Shadidah!







I loved my class so much, in fact that I immediately decided to share my joy of Zumba with everyone by becoming a Zumba instructor! I was dancing next to my friend Mrs. Fatass and she was telling me that becoming an instructor was on her list of things to do in the near future. It was a lightbulb moment for me. And my decision was further solidified when Lorraine of  RunWifeyRun said, "Girl, this is you!"


After the 45 minute class I checked my trusty Polar and noted that I'd burned 713 calories! Perhaps you didn't read me - 713 CALORIES!!!!! What is not to love about a workout that doesn't seem like a workout and burns an amazing number of calories????? Well, Thea of Shrinking Jeans isn't convinced that this is the workout for her but I give her props for trying and Christy, the editor at Shrinking Jeans said she enjoyed the class just by watching me! 


So, my decision has been made. I'm becoming an instructor and I plan on sharing all of my adventures with you along the way. It might not always be pretty but I guarantee you this journey will be fun for you and me!


 Do you Zumba?

I've been dying to try Zumba but with my thyroid problems, I'm afraid too. Hopefully I will try and get hooked! LOL You did great, btw.

Oh girl, I'll be able to say I was there when the idea was born. I'm going at the end of next month for my class. Let me know when you do yours!

Ms. Latina said...

Woot! You are going to rock it Renee! I can see you doing it too, now if only you could teach a class by me. I may have 2 left feet but I'm down - I got no shame LOL

Mommy Mo said...

I do love Zumba and I think you will make a fabulous instructor!

Bari said...

Yeah Renee!!! I would totally take your class - and my feelings toward Zumba are very similar to Thea's!

I took the Zumba class with much fear but had a good time. I don't know that I'd do it again but it wasn't as bad as I thought.

I saw you up there shaking it! Love that you want to become an instructor - go for it! I envy the confidence and ease the instructors had and wish I wasn't so self-conscious when it comes to dancing!

Awesome! Excited for you on this new adventure!

Christy M. said...

It's true!! Watching you Zumba made me want to be a better Zumba-er. You are AWESOME!!!!

Execumama said...

Good for you!! You were clearly enjoying yourself, and that is fantastic. I've taken Zumba a few times, and I really enjoy it, but I'm so horrible at coordinated routines that I tend to throw off the rest of the class - LOL. If there's a freestyle Zumba class, I'm all over it, otherwise, don't worry, I will NOT be in your class running into everyone from going in the wrong direction!!

Sending you Light for your journey. Keep inspiring us, mama!!
