I also love jogging (outside) and spin class but Zumba and hiphop are my true favs.
It does not sound like a workout I know but it really is.
I have a bodymedia to gague calories burned and each hiphop class is between 600 - 800 claories!! It is awesome!!!!
I do HipHop and Zumba about four days a week and then spin and jog the others and I noticed that my knees were starting to hurt - bad. Like even when I was sleeping if I turned wrong, etc.
So someone said as much as I dance for fitness I needed to invest in a pair of dancing shoes. They have a pivot point that allows for easier turning without jerking or tugging on the knees! What a difference!! They are awesome! They were actually on sale at Kohls and I was able to get them for like 26 dollars; a steal when you consider that real Zumba shoes are like 80 dollars!
Anyway I love them!!!!
I spun last night for an hour and then did Zumba for a final hour...hopefully if my eating stays on track I will lose BIG this week!!!! STAY TUNED!!!!
