While I'm visiting with my sister and her family in Northern California I "get" to join her for gym workouts. Yesterday's was a Zumba class.

Do you know anything about Zumba? It's not new, really, although the experience was new to me. It's based on Latin beats, but what I didn't know is that it's all about modern Latin beats, like bachata and reggaeton. No regional Mexican here, folks!

Clearly the instructor, although very inspiring in many ways, is not a Spanish speaker. Whenever the lyrics told us to "move your hips," we ... weren't. But that aside, the workout was great although I was always several steps behind the rest of the class. I recommend it for a fun and energizing way to get the blood pumping!
