Yes, exercise CAN be fun.
I hate exercise. I hate vegetables. I love cake and beer. This all starts to catch up with you. I had been asked for the 3rd time in a few months when I was “due” and my self esteem was affected. But I have 4 kids, was attending full time college and worked full time. How in the world was I going to fit in exercise? I reluctantly joined a gym that had dance fitness classes. This is where I found my people and lost 50 lbs in the process. The energy as soon as I walked into the room was fun, upbeat, and welcoming.
There were people of all shapes and sizes, ages and colors. Little Kim with the big presence started the class. Her choreography was a great mix of Latin and hip hop. Her music selections were also a great mix of old school,Latin, and modern. I was hooked. Her class availability made it doable with my busy schedule. Plus it was wicked fun. Yes, exercise CAN be fun. A year later, 50 lbs came off and even through I look like a weirdo dancing- I have the best time and have adopted a healthy lifestyle.
Kim pushes you to be your best self but you find yourself smiling the whole time. Her infectious energy and remarkable talent make you want to be there. She makes my heart (and hips) happy. She ignited my inner Shakira and there’s no going back!
