Zumba!

Lately, I have stepped away from my normal run and tried out some new classes at the gym!  My favorite is Zumba!  It is the perfect way to get into swim suit shape for the summer!  If you don't know what it is, its a fast paced Latin/hip hop style dancing.  You burn anywhere from 500-800 calories in an hour!  Fabulous!  There is an awesome instructor here in town, her name is Kim and we had her on Good Day Sacramento, recently.  She has her own studio and she also teaches classes at Cal Fit.  This is her website.  If you are near a gym, check it out and see if they have the "Zumba" class... I promise, you won't be disappointed!

Great story! One correction - Kim doesn't own her studio in Elk Grove. I think you may be thinking of Tanya who owns a studio and was the first person to bring Zumba to Sacramento about 4-5 years ago...?

She totally rocks! If you've not tried to class you NEED to get to one!! Her website is www.dance2drhythm.com and she is AMAZING!!

Kim was one of her students before she got certified...
