Me to new student: "So have you ever done Zumba before?"
New Student: "No... and I'm really nervous because I'm so uncoordinated!"
Me: "Nah... just let yourself flail around and your body will pick it up over time. And have fun!"
The students who listen to me and keep coming back to class over time TOTALLY gain ground in coordination! It's remarkable!
The students who get frustrated on class number one because they're not getting it, usually leave and never come back, resigned to this belief that they're uncoordinated.
9 times out of 10, you're not uncoordinated.
You're just doing something new.
Remember how awkward it was learning to drive a car? Or ride a bike? Or braid your friend's hair?
No one says, "I can't drive a car, I'm uncoordinated." They just awkwardly go through the steps and eventually - LEARN!
Our culture has little patience for not being a "natural" at something from day one.
To be honest, some people will pickup Zumba faster than others. Good for them.
However, your body is SO brilliant, that given enough chances, it will learn and remember and grow and change and YES - you will realize that you ARE coordinated.
You just needed time for your body to adapt and learn.
Because I know this is true (you can't get the hang of something or the feel of a class or instructor) after just one class, we offer a generous Intro Deal of four classes for $20.
Or if you feel that maybe you gave up too soon, come back and give yourself another shot. You can get 20 Classes for $169 (good for a WHOLE YEAR) right now - we only do this ONCE a year - so now is a good time to get back into the swing of things!
So come and give your brilliant body a chance to learn something new and love it!
And have some fun in the meantime!
