Zumba Fitness

Have you ever wondered what the excitement, passion and love is ALL about around this hit fitness phenomenon called “ZUMBA”?

Why is Zumba fitness so popular among kids, adults and seniors?  Zumba is truly a unique class that allows you to “Ditch the Workout” and have a party ! It is a combination of choreographed dance moves representing Latin and Caribbean rhythms.  These dances are fun, energetic and upbeat! It truly makes you want to smile the whole time.

The best part is, it doesn’t feel like a workout! Zumba  is a dance based fitness class where you can enjoy a fitness party without feeling judged on your dancing abilities and choreography! You burn a ton of calories without realizing it because you’re letting loose and having fun!

The Zumba music includes Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Reggaetone, Samba and many more! It’s a great opportunity to learn about the various culturals while having fitness fun. 

The instructors tend to be full of energy to keep the classes creative and authentic! They are licensed instructors that are required to learn the Zumba styles and take intense training to ensure they understand the choreography!

The Colors are intense! You’ll find neon greens, yellows, pinks and much more! The colors “wow” your senses to ensure you’re ready to wake up and have a good time!

 My favorite part about Zumba is the diversity! Zumba appeals to all walks of life, culturals, genders and other demographics! We all want to be healthy and fit! Zumba is a fun, exciting way to get you there! You should check out a Zumba dance party the next time you consider a fitness class! 


5 Ladies Night Events to do with Friends

5 Great Ladies Night Events to Enjoy with Friends!

In honor of the Costello REI Ladies Night Out event this month, I'd like to share 5 fun outings to do with your girls!

1 - Wine & Painting! This is a huge hit for bachelorette events, corporate outings and bonding moments with friends. We're all busy during the week, so it's great to take time to relax with a paint brush, arouse our creative minds and drink a glass of wine with friends. A few locations include: Wine & Design, Paint & Sip and Wine & Canvas! Check them out. 

2 - Check out a Cooking Class! Sample a new cuisine, enhance your cooking skills or learn a new recipe with your friends. A great local place is Chef Alyssa's Kitchen! You can try a wide array of cuisines including: Thai, Italian and Tex Mex

3 - Movie Night! This is an oldie but goodie. It's so fun to invite your friends over for a popular movie or tv show in the comfort of your own home. 

4 - Go for a hike or a Zumba class! We all know a great way to let out energy is to exercise! Invite a few of your girlfriends out for a fun fitness class to have a blast and burn calories. 

5 - Spa Night! It's always fun to pamper yourself and unwind from a long, work week. Massages, nails and hair treatments are great ways to bounce back and get relaxed. A spa night coupled with your favorite girls = a recipe for a memorable evening!
