Aug. 5, 2012 Zumbathon at the J

When you have to unbutton the top part of your pants upon sitting down – you know you’ve got a problem. And I have to admit that I’ve done that at least once during the past week.

Along with my obvious 2013 resolution to lose the weight I gained in the past year, I also need to find a workout program that I can stick with. I’ve heard a lot about Zumba in the past couple years, and am wondering if my quasi-decent dancing abilities might make Zumba what I need.

Luckily, registration is open for  “Zumbathon at the J” from 2-4:15 p.m. Jan. 6 at Aaron Family JCC. The event features different dance instuructors and a live drum dance off for $15 per member, $20 for group exercise instructors and $25 for non members.

I’m thinking this might be a good place to start, but I don’t know what to expect. Any Zumba masters out there have any advice?
