The Last Day of Zumba Convention 2011 was an AWESOME close to an incredible weekend! I have to say this was certainly a learning experience for me and continues to be so every step I take in class from this day forward. I am forever thankful for the people I meet day in and day out and I am Blessed to be a part of Our Wellness Industry. Yes, Dancing is Fun and Exciting and Zumba is just oh so enticing! I LOVE IT!! Your wellness continuum is at work when doing Zumba and that is just the most important perk that we just don’t realize. Just imagine how much healthier, even I have realize within my own Crew and of course, I know my body as well and I see the transformation in myself. It is incredible for those whom apply themselves the incredible change is pure Excitement! Just so self-fulfilling knowing the body is being cared for in each and every participant!
