Share the Zumba Love!


I will always treasure the memories I have of my first experiences of ‘Zumba’, which have empowered me to confront every obstacle in my life with a new attitude. Zumba has truly changed my life and I would like to share my outlook with all readers but specifically directed to those women out there just like me. I was a woman with a certain degree of insecurity, self esteem issues and most of all a lack of confidence in myself. Irrespective of age, I used to carry this burden all my life, always afraid to try new things and step outside of my comfort zone.

With extensive encouragement from my family, I realised life is too short to remain status quo and abstain from exploring and enjoying my hobbies, becoming physically and mentally healthy and most of all simply enjoying life. It was at this point in time that I decided to pick up a motivational magazine and, whilst flicking through it, I came across the newest ‘thing’ for 2009 on how to achieve optimal results for a toned body whilst simultaneously dancing and having fun. This was when I decided to step into this newfound craze-which we all know today as ZUMBA!

Zumba has not only allowed me to lose 2 dress sizes and feel physically and mentally healthy, it has given me the opportunity to find myself and form a new friendship circle, providing me with the opportunity to gain more confidence in myself and in life situations. I have become more independent, where I am able to attend functions and other classes on my own. Zumba has taught me to develop a positive attitude and to strive upwards and never give up no matter how difficult an obstacle. Life has so much to offer when one is willing to try new things and leave the fear aside. Today, I can truly confirm that Zumba changed my life, where all the negatives wilted away and I was in awe of the new me! Whatever sits on the horizon,  I know within myself that Zumba will forever be a part of my life. I love the new me! I love Zumba!!
