6 Ways Zumba helps with your Exercise Resolution

pants fit resolution

I recently spotted this post by personal trainer Kathleen Trotter and couldn’t help but think how much Zumba fits perfectly into each of her 6 tips for keeping resolutions.

Six Ways to Keep your Exercise Resolution

  1. Don’t keep your goals a secret

    A core value of TC Zumba is not only fitness, but also community. Joining the class offers plenty of others with whom to share goals, frustrations and victories.

  2. Have both long-term and short-term goals

    Your first goal might be just working up the courage to walk into our class. Instant victory! (and well worth the nerve)

  3. Make sure all your goals are realistic and specific.

    “Eat less,” “exercise more” are not specific. “Attend 1 Zumba class each week.” is something you can measure and feel great about.

  4. Don’t try to implement multiple changes at once.

    Start with a single class. Chances are you’ll be inspired to make more adjustments to your health regimen.

  5. Get an exercise buddy

    This is HUGE for me! Zumba is a great way to make new friends and to push each other to reach those goals (all while having a blast)

  6. Pick exercise activities you enjoy.

    Zumba, obviously.

Zumba is Inc. Magazine’s Company of the Year

Inc Magazine Zumba cover company of the year

Inc. Magazine recently named Zumba fitness as its “Company of the Year.” Among it’s focus on highly trained instructors and thorough business model, it is the uniting factor of the workout itself that’s brought the company to such great heights:

It is a democracy of cool where the cheerleader, the goth, and the fat kid from high school are besties. You can do it, and so can your preschooler and your grandmother. Fourteen million people in 150 countries take Zumba classes at least once a week.

You can read the full article on Inc’s website.

3 Tips to Holiday Fitness


We are taking a break from Zumba classes for a few weeks. If you haven’t already signed up for the email newsletter you definitely should so that you don’t miss announcements for the new season in 2012.

Here are three tips to keeping your fitness routine over the holiday break

1. Stick with a Routine you Love

When I’m not doing Zumba I engage other activies that I enjoy or find challenging. It is really important to continue with your regular workout schedule (be flexible enough so you don’t give up if you miss a day), but what is even more important is to find something you enjoy and make time for it every day.

Here are a few workouts that I do on my “days off”

  • Workout Videos: Jillian Michaels, Tae Bo, etc
  • Running
  • Walking (you have to really work hard on your walks though)
  • Snowshoeing
  • X-country skiing

2. Save Treats for Special Occasions

Holidays is one of those times that you can’t avoid a treat once in a while. Go for it!

But save those guilty pleasures for the special occasions during this season. It is important to continue keeping track of day-to-day intake or things can really fly out of hand (I know from experience…)

Here are a few treats that somehow seem to be ignored in calorie counts:

  • Drinks!! All beverages (especially alcohol, pop, sweetened “juice/tea,” eggnog!) are so sneaky, you may want to commit to drinking only water (or tea/coffee) when you’re not at a party.
  • Tasting while cooking (every nibble of xmas cookies counts)
  • Free samples at Cherry Republic ;)

3. Balance your Daily Diet

Starving yourself in-between holiday parties isn’t going to help as much as you think, and even though counting calories is important eating a balanced diet throughout the break is even more essential.
You may have to adjust your portion sizes to do so, but following the new “my plate” guide to healthy eating (the food pyramid is history) is a fantastic way to keep your eating habits healthy and your fitness plan in tact.

Happy Halloween!


No class tonight – have a happy Halloween everyone!
