For the Zumba-addicts amongst you, whether it's the game, DVD or gym class you get your fix from, I highly recommend that you attend a Zumba Party! There really is no other kind of party with an atmosphere like this. Typically, you can expect a stadium type location or maybe even in the street, loud music, multiple instructors, a lot of brightly coloured Zumba-branded clothing and many, many, people dancing happily.
These events typically last around 3 hours, a 'Zumbathon' compared to the usual 1 hour gym classes. You'll need to take a couple of bottles of water, although some venues may open their bars and serve water with ice chips throughout the night! If you want to look the part, wear brightly coloured gym clothes, or take a look at the Zumba store if you're willing to splurge a little.
To get tickets, you may be able to buy them directly from your Zumba instructors or from the venue's website. These events typically happen every few months so if one pops up near you, be sure to check it out for an unforgettable workout.
To the left is a photo of my mum and me at the last Zumba party we went to at the 02 Academy Leicester back in July. Yep, that's right, we both survived three hours of dancing! We both had so much fun and needless to say we'll both me getting tickets to the next one in the near future!
Zumba Parties: The Best Kind of Party

Since the 11th of May 2011, I have gone from being obese to healthy, rescued myself from diabetes and hypertension and taught myself how to cook along the way. I've gone from being the teen that bunked off PE lessons, to the adult whose hobbies include lifting weights, yoga, dance and mixed martial arts.
My main rule is to live a lifestyle that's fad-free! I encourage everyone to stay well away from faddy diets that could potentially cause more health problems than they solve.
It's all about creating a sustainable, enjoyable lifestyle change.
