Ok, I've been hogging this gem for long enough. It's time that I shared my favorite way to exercise with all of you: Kazaxe.
Let me start by saying a few words of thanks. To my roommate Katie, thank you for opening my eyes to the wonderful world of Azuka. And to Beth, thank you for making the Sunday pact with me!
Now, what is Kazaxe you ask? It's like the club version of zumba. For those of you in the DC area you should definitely check it out. This post is not sponsored, they are giving me nothing, except hopefully amazing abs. :)
Katie has been going for a few years and Beth even longer than that but this high-energy zumba class run by a girl named Azuka has become a DC phenomenon. For $5 a class you can walk in and dance your butt off and it's basically one of the hardest workouts I've done.
The BEST thing about it though is that it's fun! There are no mirrors anywhere in the studio (read: warehouse) and it's just 200 people of all shapes and sizes shaking their booties and sweating like crazy. It sounds not as appealing when I say it like that, but you know what I mean. Because there are no mirrors, I also feel like I look like the super talented instructors rather than my non-rhythmic self. It's awesome.
Anyway, for those of you who might hate working out like I do... give this (or something like it in your area a try) you might be surprised.
