(Random trivia: I actually took Irish step dance for 3 years. ‘Twas a blasty)

THIS kinda jig:

A new Zumba video!

I really hope you like it 😀

Have a wonderful day, rock out some green (!) and I’ll see ya this afternoon.



Something to talk about: Any fun St. Patrick’s Day plans? What’s your favorite Irish or green food? Mine would have to be soda bread… expect a vegan, gluten-free version in the near future. I’m hankering over here 🙂

    I honestly wanted to do this in the middle of my University’s library. The look on the classes faces when you introduced the one move was priceless 😀 Looks like so much fun!

    Before going meatless, I loved corned beef. However Cabbage and Potatoes rock my face off for sure. I’ve got a few fingerlings on my butcher block just WAITING to be roasted tonight!

    So much fun! I’m actually taking my first Zumba class tomorrow. Will I be way behind on the steps? How did everyone in your class know the routine already? I hate being clueless in a class because then I don’t get a very good workout :/

      hey! some of the girls had never seen or done that dance before… just go for it! many of the songs repeat the same steps during the dance, so you’ll get it 🙂 just have fun!

    Lol, I love the video! You’re just rocking it. 🙂

    I’ve never really celebrated St. Pattys and I’m not sure if I will this year. Next year I’ll for sure celebrate though! I’m legal then. 😉

    I “won’t” (which is way more powerful than “want”) to come to your Zumba classssssssss! Looks so fun!!!!

    PS, I forgot all about St. Patricks Day. BAD blog boy…..bad!

    • Fitnessista on March 17, 2010 at 9:43 pm

      LOL. thanks girl!

  12. Becca on March 17, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Zumba looks like a ton of fun! I’m so glad you posted a video because I’ve been wondering what exactly zumba is. Do you all just dance the whole time? That sounds so fun!

    • Fitnessista on March 17, 2010 at 9:39 pm

      yep- an hour straight of dancing 🙂

  13. Hannah on March 17, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    How does your knee feel doing zumba? Is it better because you use different muscles than running? It seems like a lot of pounding!

    Great video!

    • Fitnessista on March 17, 2010 at 9:37 pm

      my knee hurts. not gonna lie. a company send me an awesome knee ice pack thing (review coming soon) which has helped a lot. if it isn’t better by fri, i’m gonna see a physical therapist

  14. Holly on March 17, 2010 at 8:07 pm

    ahhh!! you’re awesome. Love the vid :o)

  15. Kelly on March 18, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    Love the video! Thanks for posting it! I still haven’t tried Zumba ( I know!!) But I think I would love it and I couldn’t help but getting my groove on while watching! It seems like so much fun 🙂

  16. Carrie on March 18, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Miss Gina! Look at you “twerkin’ it” as we say here in Miami! Work it out girl!

    I do my Zumba vids at home for fitness but you have me thinking about going back to classes… I danced for 18 years, most of my life! There’s something amazing about sharing your energy with a roomful of other people getting down!

    Kudos for you and your awesome class, energy and spirit!!!

    • Fitnessista on March 18, 2010 at 10:02 pm

      LOL. twerkin. love it 🙂
      thanks girl!

    Today, well technically yesterday, was my 8.5 year anniversary with my boyfriend and I. We didn’t really celebrate though since I slept for 12 hours because of a migraine. Not cool, but we ended up celebrating the night before (maybe BF was anticipating a long day at work = migraine).

  18. Dee on March 19, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    ack, i’m late to the party, but I LOVED the zumba video! OMG, I love that song!

  19. glidingcalm on March 21, 2010 at 5:51 pm
