I have always hated the gym. I have never found any enjoyment out of it. I used to have to force myself to go so I think that may be the main reason why I never saw any results from the many times I have tried to join a gym! Most people join gyms in January but I actually cancelled my membership this January as I had been wasting my money for the last 4 months of 2016. I knew I wasn’t going to go as I really came to hate going so I thought I needed to start looking for something else. A way of exercising that can be fun too..
People say that in order to lose weight you don’t necessarily need to do exercise and that you can lose weight by simply changing your diet. However, I personally felt it was important to incorporate some exercise into my routine, to help boost my weight loss. I also wanted to use exercise as a new hobby and to meet new people.
At the end of December last year a friend of mine introduced me to ‘Clubbercise‘ and I haven’t looked back since! I have attended classes once a week for the past 4 weeks and I absolutely love it. I actually look forward to it coming around each week, and I never would have thought I would enjoy doing exercise!
What is Clubbercise you may ask?! It seems to be the new craze, there seems to be groups popping up everywhere. The best way to describe it is just like Zumba but.. YOU HAVE GLOWSTICKS AND ITS IN THE DARK! Basically you get to dance around to fast paced routines in the dark with loads of flashing lights and your very own multi- flash GLOWSTICKS!
It’s A.MAZE.ING. I currently go to a place in Sheffield but if you search ‘clubbercise – and then your town/city’, on Facebook, loads of different classes come up. Here’s mine if you want to have a look.. https://m.facebook.com/jackie0906/ There’s a few videos on there too that show you what it’s all about.
I highly recommend giving it a go if there is a class near you. I am someone that never goes red when I exercise but this makes me look like a tomato! And I ache for DAYS after too, so it must be doing something! It is so much fun and definitely works; I’m already seeing results only 4 weeks in.
Who doesn’t want to dance around in the dark with flashing lights and lose weight/tone at the same time?! Go and try a class ASAP! Let me know if you give it a go.
Bye for now,
