Mari dengarkan gue bercerita tentang senam zumba dengan bahasa gado-gado. Pardon my english, hehehe.
I’d been hoping to attend dance class for very long time. Kalau gak salah tahun 2013, I found the information that in my office held a zumba session. I instantly interested. And within period 2013 to 2014, I joined the zumba session after office hour (setelah jam 5 sore).
At that time, I lived near the office (renting room aka ngekost), so I had no problem with my way home at night. Gak khawatir kecapekan di jalan. Kalau rumahnya jauh bisa sampai rumah jam 9 lewat, terus besoknya masih ngantor pula.
Zumba dance has a lot of different movement, depend on the song track played by the instructor. She (the instructor) could have been play hip hop song until dangdut. Dari lagu melow sampai samba. Lagu top 40 sampai yang gue gak kenal. The first thing I notice when the first song end is suddenly happiness surround the room, mungkin hormon endorfin mulai memuncak jadinya semangat. Namanya juga pemanasan hihihi..
Also various age of participants did not stop the dance moves. Bener lho dari yang perawan sampai yang sebentar lagi pensiun. They actively follow the instructor with smile on their face.
All participants was women, no men allowed. Mungkin karena pakai baju senam yang ketat kali yaa jadi laki-laki gak boleh ikutan. Seems not just me looking for refreshment after working. Stres kerja bisa hilang setelah keringetan dan kehabisan napas selesai senam.
In my opinion, zumba is sexy dance. Feeling sexy and fierce so we can sense the mood of the song. More power is great. You have to train your muscles not just follow the dance moves. Gak cuma goyang-goyang lemas begitu. And because this more like to dancing than regular aerobic, the hall was full. Peminatnya paling banyak dibanding others session. Dulu diadakan juga sesi aerobik cuma jumlah peserta terlalu sedikit jadinya ditutup.
It is really fun experience I had during work there. Selama gue ikutan zumba, gue bisa menilai aerobik cenderung membosankan. Gerakannya yang diulang-ulang dan gak mirip dance. I’m not trying to be cocky. But as far as my experience, I prefer to zumba. Anyone agree with me?
My other favorite sport: walking.
