Quite possibly the best and most fun exercise I have ever given a go. I am not a massive gym fan personally, I join a gym, pay extortionate amounts and then go once a month if that. The thought of running machines, cross trainers, sweat and pumping muscles all around me, makes my blood run cold and fills me with dread, so I decided to look into what other sort of activity I could get into to help me get fit and stumbled across Zumba.
I go to this brilliant class run by Mei on a Monday night in Vauxhall. It is about a 10 minute walk from the station, but well worth it! Mai is an excellent teacher and for £7 it is a sure fire way to get me exercising whilst laughing at the same time.
Mei also runs the class on a Saturday morning in Clapham Junction. There is a bit more information about her here. The classes are just brilliant, full of modern / Spanish / salsa music with fun dances that are easy to follow and brilliant to get involved in. Each class lasts 60 minutes with a warm up and warm down and it is fun to go alone or with friends.
These classes have everything you could want from an hour of exercise, no one judging you, zero competitiveness, hard work but with a fun twist and lots and lots of sweat. So turn up in your gym kit and trainers, bring your £7 and away you go - oh and remember some water, you'll need it!
