What were you doing on Sunday afternoon? Were you at the mall or grocery shopping? Maybe you were even working on your taxes?
Well, I was at Redskins Park, along with members of the Women of the Washington Redskins, taking a Zumba class and having a blast! It was great to see such a fabulous turnout. Our instructor, Nikki of Gold's Gym, Ashburn led us through the Latin-inspired dance-fitness program to awesome music.
The Zumba fitness party was easy to follow, thanks to Nikki, and so much fun. I saw so many smiles as everyone was shaking their hips and shimmying their shoulders! You don’t even feel like you’re exercising in a Zumba class but by the end, I was sweaty and energized.
Since it’s inception in 2001, Zumba has grown to become the largest and most successful dance-fitness program in the world. More than 12 million people of all fitness levels take Zumba weekly, all over the world! We offer Zumba at Gold’s Gym in Ashburn several times a week and classes are always packed.
After we Zumba’ed our booties off (literally), we got an exclusive tour of Redskins Park. What a privilege, as a lifelong Redskin fan, to be able to see the three Super Bowl trophies from the 1982, 1987 and 1991 seasons. Did you know they each weigh 7 lbs and are made by Tiffany’s? I wonder if they come in a big blue box with a big white ribbon! We even got to see Sonny Jurgensen’s “office." It’s actually a leather sofa that he is always found sitting on. I don't know about you all, but I already can’t wait for training camp this summer.
I hope my fellow WOW members and Redskin fans had as good of a time as I did. I expect to see all of you at the next WOW fitness event. Please come up and introduce yourselves to me, I would love to meet you!
Stay Healthy and Fit,
