I recently joined Bodyscapes Fitness in Coolidge Corner, Brookline. Beacon Hill Athletic Club was just not working for me. Not only is this close to my office which will force me to go to the gym before/after work, but the facility is MUCH nicer. It's like night and day. Sorry BHAC!
Monday night, I took the Zumba class. Let me just say, I have never seen elderly woman shake it as fast as they were shakin it! It was absolutely inspiring to say the least. They were having the time of their lives. While the class itself was really good and reminded me of how much I love dancing, I was more entertained by the older women around me (some in their 80's) who were confidently and happily shaking their bums like they were being paid to!
The instructor was great but as my luck would have it, my first day in her class was her last day teaching. Go figure. Toward the end of the class, she provided the class with bellydancing coin hip scarves for a zumba dance infused with Arabic & Indian moves. I had so much fun and such an amazing workout - I wish this class was every day.
Anyway, if you live in Brookline and are looking for a good Zumba class or just a great gym with great amenities, Bodyscapes is the way to go. Enjoy this awesome track that we Zumba-ed/bellydanced to!
