Zumba vs. Soccer

Often the slower guy does goalkeeping in a soccer pick up game. Well, that is not of much help. Or even the nice guy does the goalkeeping, the less assertive and aggressive and so that turned out to be me in goal often.  But a cardio workout is what a fun game of soccer is about, Zumba's fun, some other cardio classes absolutely exhaust you in a good way. I started taking that Zumba right away..... I have now taken Zumba to where such a class does not wear me out but at first it did, I've got accustomed to the Zumba now. bicycling is fun but doesn't really tire one out too much unless you really really go after it.  There is a lot out there, the Yoga, Zumba.... and these other classes...... Zumba, get into it or the other classes..... running is good but not the same... Yoga, that's a handful...

Zumba is obviously a word a lot like Samba which seems to originate from Brazil, the "Samba Boys", Brazil's national team. Even then, I've stepped up in health by not even needing to grab the water bottle doing an hour of Zumba. I liked Zumba right away.....women in it, yes, but looks like I am now doing the more difficult cardio now, run in place, hit the floor and do a push up, get up real quick, do a jumping jack or run in place and then, hit the floor to do another push up, continue, do that for awhile. Hard stuff.

Zumba is a great stepping stone, you see ads for it on TV. But nice to have some freeweights involved this is what the other classes have and perhaps they are close to being "boot camps", tons of fun.
