We Are Going Gaga over Zumba

Yup, my entire family is getting into the zumba craze, and we never had this much, much fun before! Zumba is Latin inspired, so it’s fast and high impact (which one needs if he’s trying to burn a lot of calories, say 400+ an hour). However, it’s also a fusion of other dances, such as the hip-hop, Bollywood, belly dancing, salsa, and even flamenco. The combos make every dance sequence not only unique and engaging (and the music addictive) but also extremely challenging since you have to adapt yourself to the changes.

So far, we’re in our day 3, and it’s my first time to go high impact, so there I opted for more bounce and exaggerated movements. I think I’m doing the steps right, though, since I can already feel some muscle tension, especially on the legs, which I didn’t feel in the first 2 days. My goal is to last for an hour without any interruption or loss of power so I can also prepare myself for the Fit-Fil Bootcamp next week.

Perhaps in the coming days too I’ll post a photo of my happy crew!

Join Fit-Fil Fitness Boot Camp in Cebu

It's finally here in Cebu this May 15 to June 16, 2012.

Right now, I definitely have excitement, euphoria, and nervousness written all over my face. You see, Bernard and I decided last weekend to officially join Fit-Fil Fitness Boot Camp in Ayala Terraces-Cebu, from May 15 to June 16, 3 times a week (Tuesday and Thursday, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.; Saturday, 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.). That’s roughly 5 weeks of intense get-your-ass-off-and-move training. Certified fitness boot camp.

Anyway, hopefully, all 200 slots will be filled, so we can look forward to a lot of people sharing our same goal: keeping ourselves fit. A few of my blogger friends are also going to be there, doubling the fun. They organizers also planning to take the boot camp in various areas, such as IT Park just to get the boredom out of the program (but I don’t think we’ll ever get bored!).

I’m also particularly excited with CrossFit. Heard a lot about it. And P90x. Tried it once and never lasted 10 minutes, and it was just yoga!

Definitely, Fit-Fil Fitness Boot Camp is going to be fun, fun, fun. And it doesn’t cost you more than a thousand pesos for the entire program. For me, it’s such a fantastic deal.

If you like to join, you can visit their Ayala booth (Activity Zone) or sign up at Coach Jim Saret’s website. (That should already give you a hint about who’s behind all this.)
