The younger generation of women are so lucky. I am in my 6os and most parents didn’t think girls needed to be involved in sports, or exercise. My mom would write us notes to get us out of phys-ed every time we had a sniffle, our period, or any other excuse we decided – which were lots because we didn’t like our gym teacher. I still find it hard to stay committed to exercise.
I’m glad you wrote this. My parents were always pushing me into sports, but I have to admit they were really fair about it. I probably tried 4 or 5 different sports before I found one I liked and they full supported me and I continued it for just over 10 years. Now as an adult I let my exercise lax, but it’s not nearly as hard to get back out there. Not to mention my health is much better than it would have been with all the genetic issues that run in my family. I must remember to thank them. 🙂 Thanks for posting Anne.
Hi Gina I ran through your blog while I was searching ‘whether or not Zumba is dead’
First I must say your blog is very inspiring and fun to read!
My name is sunny , I currently live w my husband and kids in Chicago . I completed my Zumba basic 1 training a few weeks ago , I’m a certified nurse and midwife but music and dance were always my greatest passion and although I do not have any fitness background I really wanted to try this out and give my self a chance to experience this. Yet, I cannot ignore this vibe I’m feeling as if this Zumba buzz is over? Did it loose it’s fame? I got the CD from training ( did not join the ZIN yet bc wanted first to see how it works out for me before I commit) anyway this CD was so ancient ! it was quit upsetting actually ..
Like I said,I really do love to dance and thought this will be a great way but would not want to invest my money time and energy in something that is not going to be worth it..
I will be so happy to hear your thoughts!
