Zumba serves as a fun fitness activity

Last night six members of Second Baptist Missionary Church joined Walking in the Spirit at Smithton Middle School for its last event of the year, a Zumba lesson taught by Bridgit Bowden, a licensed Zumba instructor who teaches at the MU Recreation Center.

Zumba is a Latin-based dance that’s not only fun but can be altered to fit each participant’s fitness level, with lower modifications for those with joint problems or who can’t do a lot of cardio.

Bridgit led everyone through a few minutes of warm-ups, then a fun 40-minute lesson followed by a cool-down period.

All of the ladies had a great time and were interested in continuing Zumba lessons with an instructor or with DVDs.
