Living Healthy in a Three Year Old’s Mind

SophiaSophia is a three year-old who has her own view of living healthy. She made the switch from ice cream to a more healthy frozen yogurt without even knowing it (thanks to her mom she still thinks its ice cream that she’s eating). Also for exercise she loves to dance!

Exercise: Zumba Fitness for Dummies

Exercising in front of people was never a thrilling thing for me. I prefer to exercise alone in my own home and maybe have a friend or two join. And I especially enjoy exercising when it involved dancing. Who doesn’t love to dance and burn a few calories at the same time? So, I went to my local GameStop¬†and bought Zumba Fitness for Xbox Kinect. The one I bought was the original version. I bought this one because it was the cheaper out of the wide arrangement of fitness games.

Zumba Fitness for Xbox Kinect

Zumba was always something I wanted to try but felt weird busting a move with a group of older women that I didn’t know.

As soon as I got home I put it in the Xbox and started playing. The set up was easy and pretty much self-explanatory. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to get started playing uploaded to Youtube by Howcast Tech & Gadgets.

When I was getting started I played a few of the tutorials. I would definitely recommend doing the tutorials. I feel like it helped me get a grasp for what a class would be like without having to do the full class. Then I attempted a full class and like the woman in the video said for every move you get perfect you get bonus points! Getting bonus points can always be a rewarding thing but the voice in the game encourages you to keep going by telling you just how great you’re doing! The game was a little hard to get the hang of and extremely exhausting. But, I felt like it was a great work out. I really enjoyed playing and with a group of people you know it can be even more fun!

The Zumba website shows a 90-day challenge that I am thinking about trying. Although they tell you to use the Zumba Rush game I may just try it using the original Zumba Fitness game. The 90-day challenge involves playing the game for 90 days and also making healthier choices for meals. I am definitely going to give this a try and I will let you all know just how Zumba helped me in 90 days!

I hope you give Zumba Fitness a try!
