Zumba is not only the newest craze, though it is also an exciting and energizing way to increase your cardiovascular health, shed unwanted pounds and inches and most importantly, soothe the soul. The time just flies when you are in class.
Cheryl's classes are designed to support those participants who are just starting and seniors who love to have fun.
I lost 8 pounds, during my first few weeks of class. This is the
most weight I have loss in a while.
I lost 5 pounds during my couple of weeks in class and had a lot
of fun while doing it.
I can already see the change in the way my clothes fit. I know I
have lost inches around my waist line.

Our bodies are our only true lifetime physical possession. They are our one treasure that we have the sole responsibility of maintaining.
As you consider how you have treated your body throughout your life and the current condition that it is in, also consider what additional steps you can take to embrace it.

What is your fitness path?
Traditionally, there have been only two steps toward weight control, increase physical activity and reduce caloric intake. Jump, run, dance, or walk and combined this with a enjoyable healthy diet. While studies have shown that other issues also impact upon weight control, we must first build a solid foundation consisting of a healthy diet and fitness routine in order to clearly evaluate what additional changes are required to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Design a fitness program that addresses your needs. The program should help you in the areas of strength, endurance and flexibility. Start with a program that you enjoy to also nourish your soul. Then balance it with one that challenges you. The most important step is to start moving.
Weight is determined by your body mass index (BMI) or body tissue composition. According to the Center for Disease Control, the BMI range is from 18.5 (underweight) to 25 (overweight). Any rate higher is considered obese.
Since 1990 the average weight for the American citizen has increased. While many have embraced a fitness routine balanced with a healthy diet, others have lived lives that lead to weight gain.
At that time the obesity rate throughout the United States was not measurable. Now, twenty years later at least 20% of the U.S. population is obese. There are 36 states where over one forth of it's population is obese. Illinois' rates are higher.
While our community may look at physical differences and see normality, our view of normality may not be the healthiest. The BMI index was originally designed to ideally evaluate the degree of physical activity or level of physical sedentary within a community, therefore determining the level of health within a community.
