One would think that during lockdown you’d be able to exercise more, not less, but not being a particularly active person at the best of times (yes, raise a glass to those of you who are similar) I thought I should get active and make it fun.

I love music and dancing so thought I would try Zumba classes online and it is really a lot of fun:

  • You can dance like no one is watching [well there are step sequences but it depends how fit you are in keeping up – it gets better over time]
  • Does not require a lot of space
  • Gets the cardiovascular system going
  • Tones all the muscles, including your core
  • Helps you de-stress
  • Improves coordination
  • You can do it alone or with someone else
  • It’s great for warming up – particularly on cold winter mornings.

I found myself looking forward to turning up the music and dancing my way through a workout instead of a work out that involves me twisting myself inside-out.

Give it a go – there’s a huge variety of styles and intensities available on YouTube. You have plenty to gain and have fun doing it. Enjoy!
