A Fitness Program that you’ll FALL in LOVE with!

Have you tried the Zumba Fitness program?

I mentioned watching the ladies dance at the Concert in Fletcher Park a couple of weeks ago!

Yes…I joined them HERE!

Well, I started going to the Zumba Fitness classes and it is just the MOST FUN I have had in a long time! Ready to go to Danceland with me?

All of my regular readers know I lost the weight I needed to lose this past year and now I need to ‘tone up’! Can you think of a better way than dancing?

Everyone is friendly…

(here’s one of the best dancers with her brother)

with lots of GREAT music….oldies and Latin inspired songs!

If you live in the Asheville, NC area, go to the Website HERE for more info! You can search to find classes wherever you live!

It’s FUN for ALL ages!!! Have you tried it yet?

PS I had something exciting happen this week! Fletcher Park put a link to my blog in two places on their website!  See anything familiar on their LINKS page? What a surprise and an honor! You never know where our blogs will take us!

Happy Blogging…and dancing!

Diane, how fun. Good for you for doing this. I love to dance and get caught dancing alone at the store! Congratulations on your link up with Fletcher Park. I'm heading there now to check you out! Have a great day pretty lady!

D~..
good morning!!
I too am trying to tone up/lose extra poundage..
I walk every morning..
so invigorating in the coolness!!
I try not to take the camera..
it is just too tempting to stop, smell the roses,
and start snapping away..
I love music..as well as dancing..
just might have to give this one a try!!
warmest hugs..
Loui♥
ps .. thanks for the sweet comment when you stopped by yesterday!

I wish I could do this type of exercise but sadly I have no coordination whatsoever! I can barely walk straight much less dance :-) New follower from SC.

You found something perfect for you. They offer Zumba where I exercise but I don't think I could keep up!

ANNE said...

It really does look fun! My daughter took some zumba classes this summer and LOVED it!

Zumba is wonderful!
I'm glad you are dancing!

What fun! I would go with you if I could!
Our yoga studio had a zumba class for a while...but I never got there....

FAG said...

LaelShine said...

That looks like a hoot!

Della said...

Zumba is fun! I've been doing it at home with my daughters xbox 360! I'd love to take the class, though. It looks like a lot of fun with a group!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Believe it or not..., they had daily zumba classes at the Canyon Ranch in Florida, but..., I never went!! I'm not the quickest when it comes to learning dance steps..., and sequences, so I avoided the whole thing.

Kasia said...

How great to see you get out there! :) Must be loads of fun! I wish you luck with the toning!

Hugs,

Diane Writes said...

Hello name mate! Wow congratulations for the feature.

This is the first time I hear Zumba and since it entails dancing, I'm sure it's a pretty lot fun. You get a chance to tone up your body and at the same time you meet new people and friends. I want to try this kind of activity too.

Flora said...

Would love to be able to dance...but forget that one!! I am always out of sync!!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Looks like a blast. If I didn't work I would do something like this. I have to walk my dog every day so that's my exercise!

Jaime Lyn said...

I have always thought about doing Zumba you may have just motivated me to find a place to go! Thanks for the inspiration! Thank you for inviting me over from my blog! I am excited to do some more exploring!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

This looks like so much fun - I'd love to join a Zumba class. Congratulations on your recent weight loss and on having links to your blog that are "published"!

Sall's Country Life said...

You Go Girl! I've heard that Zumba is really fun, and boy do I need something like this! Wish I lived closer to you! Keep on Dancin!

Jordan@the2seasons said...

I have been wanting to try this at our YMCA. I am training for a marathon right now but I decided after it is over I want to take a break from running. I think this will be a nice change and it sounds so fun!

Joy said...

my sons fiance does zumba. Right now I am waiting to get a steriod shot in my spine so I better hold off..ugh!!

Shelia said...

HI Diane! Now that does look like fun! I don't think we have a Zumba class around here. Good for you for loosing your weight and good for you for continuing to exercise. I always say I'm gonna do it.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Betsy said...

I've been hearing so much about this lately. Looks like so much fun too.
Enjoy your long weekend.

jeanne said...

Hi diane, this sounds like something I would love. I doubt it would be in our small town though. I have bee walking three miles to Leslie Sansones three mile walk off the pounds tape. It is fun and very good for strengthening your body. Best I can do I think.
I am heading over to Fletcher Park. Congrats on being featured.
Hugs, Jeanne

PS, I know you must be surprised to hear from me but I am trying to reconnect with my blogging friends. It is nice to see you again.

jeanne said...

I saw the link Diane and it brought me right back to you. That is so cool.
xo, Jeanne, again

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Diane,
You Go Girl. I know that Zumba is fun but I have not tried it yet. I love to dance and have done salsa and that is fun too.
Love the pics of everyone really enjoying the class. You are going to have a great time. Enjoy and have fun!!

XO Celestina Marie
