|This is a picture of MY FIRST OFFICIAL ZUMBA CLASS!|
Look at these BEAUTIFUL women! I taught my first official Zumba class this morning, and these are the ladies who attended. We had an awesome class and I am still flying from the energy and the love each one of them brought to the class. These ladies showed up and showed out. Altogether there were 29 women who came out to get their Zumba on! Not too shabby for a first class. We had a blast! I’m still overwhelmed by the support and I can’t even begin to thank each and every one of you for the joy you brought to my heart today!
I tell you, it’s amazing what the body can do when that adrenaline gets to pumping. This morning I woke up and literally EVERY bone in my body hurt. It’s coming up on that time of the month, and no matter what I do, my body falls apart. My back hurt, my knees were screaming and I had a crook in my neck, but you couldn’t tell it from the way I was getting those moves in. Does that make me a “professional”? I don’t know about all that, but I can say that when the class was over, I thought I would be crawling to my car, but instead my energy stayed high all day, and my aches and pains subsided…Thank the good Lord! It’s amazing what exercise will do for you…I highly recommend it It helped too that I spent a good chunk of my morning stretching my body so that it would not be so stiff.
So now that I have my first class firmly tucked under my belt, I can exhale. I had so many concerns going in. Would I be able to go through a whole hour? Would I be able to cue the ladies, so they would know the next step? Would I be able to remember the choreography? Would I be able to teach facing the class vs. teaching with my back to the class? Would the facility be comfortable temperature wise? Would the more experienced Zumba students be bored with my routines? Would the ladies get in a good sweat and workout? Would my body withstand all the practices and then be strong enough and energetic to teach? Seriously, these are all the things that were on my mind for the last few weeks as I have been preparing. But if anyone was uncomfortable, or bored I was not the wiser. People were sweating, which is good. They were throwing in their own flava, which is great. They were able to keep up, even when I messed up…LOL, which was fabulous. I tell you, if you want to teach Zumba to a group of ladies, these are the ladies to teach it to!
We’re on tap for the next class, which is Thursday and starting next Saturday I will be facilitating my Weight No More Weight Loss Motivation class before Zumba, and I am super excited about that, because lives are going to be changed and people are going to reclaim their health…can’t wait to get started.
So if someone were to ask me how was my day…go ahead….ask me. I’d say GREAT and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!!!! Yeah, today was a good day! As my sister Candie would say, check! That’s right Candie, this is one I can check off the list. The only other thing I can say is look at God. This is all Him…and there are no words to express my thankfulness. And here’s what I know for sure…He’s only just begun…Phil 1:6….Thanks Trac for the reminder this morning….
