I am switching things up in my fitness routine. I love taking group FIT classes, I always have. There is something about taking a class with a group of people, so much more motivating than jumping on the treadmill by yourself. Since I am a Group Fit instructor, I really enjoy trying out new classes to see what other instructors add to their routines. There are so many awesome classes out there, TRY them. You may really enjoy the variety. I know I do!
Since my 2013 goals, I am trying to add a variety of different fitness classes and programs to my schedule. I am keeping it fresh and changing so that I keep it up. I feel its much more fun that way…right?! So when a co-worker asked me to join her in a new class at her gym, I jumped on the opportunity!
It is an exciting NEW Fitness class that is becoming more and more popular. It had me feeling like Jasmine from Aladdin, I am not even sure why…maybe it was the music and dance moves! I was loving it.
The class was called Masala Bhangra. It was a dance class that is spun from the popular Bollywood dance. Masala means “spicy” in Hindi and Bhangra means Folk Dance! So…let’s just say I was shaking my groove thang. It was a fabulous workout that flew by. The first half of the class was learning the moves, the second half we put it all together with loud music ;like Slumdog millionaire. Here is a thought…think Zumba…but an India version?! It really is a cardio boost that will have you sweating for sure! You do a bunch of exhilarating dance moves to the beats of the music, your heart rate will for sure be up there.If it is at your local gym, give it a try OR pick up a DVD. Your shoulder’s will be thanking you and I don’t think you’ll regret it!
With that being said, I don’t know if I would take this class every week, but it sure did switch up my normal routine so I don’t get bored.
Oh by the way, did you pack your stuff last night so you were ready this morning for your day! I did…I am trying!
What kinds of classes do you like? Anything NEW and exciting at your gym?
