Do You Zumba?

You Can Zumba at Gigi's Fitness Center in Lake Charles


There is a fitness craze sweeping the nation called ZUMBA and its HOT! Ditch the workout Join the Party!

Zumba is  an aerobic dance inspired exercise  set to the beat of Samba, Salsa, Merengue, Calypso, African beats and Hip Hop.  You can burn 500 calories in an are constantly moving!  Zumba not only is an endurance workout, it also improves agility and strengthens your lower body.

I have stepped out of my comfort zone and been attending Zumba Class and Shakira was right, my hips don't lie but they are a little sore!  My review of  Zumba is more like a party workout with really loud music where you move to to the beat like you are on board a cruise ship!

The Zumba instructor at Gigi's Gym in Lake Charles, LA is Meghan Mize Sylvester. She is young bubbly and vibrant and of course Meghan makes it look easy too! 

Who doesn't want to be young and fit??



Part of the enthusiasm of the class is being able to laugh and have fun cutting loose to the beat, not to mention it's a  cardio workout! We get alot of peeks through the door from curious spectators during our class!

Exercise is supposed to relieve stress and keep you healthy. It you can have fun and enjoy what you are doing while you are exercising that is half the battle!

See what  Co-Author of the Chicken Soup For The Soul, Marci Shimoff has to say about Zumba!  She refers to Zumba as her "Happy Routine"




Who says you can't have fun working out? I am all about fun in life! Can you spot me in the corner?
