Gold’s Gym West Georgia Members – What Is Your Story?

I’ve been thinking again about the changes we go through when we reach certain personal goals. Most of us anticipate these destinations as clear and certain experiences of self actualization, becoming the best of who we are. I believe this has been true with everyone of our Gold’s Gym members who have done what they set out to do.

They tell us something this important does not happen with a simple wish, but requires a soulful fire deep down low. The wish becomes desire and the first match is struck as the wildfire of change begins to spread.

We each have a story. What we tell ourselves about our story controls our destiny, informing us whether or not we are truly capable of becoming more. All of us have a unique tale of family, friends, schools, romance, marriage, births, deaths, tragedies and triumphs. This life-long drama has made us who we are. But story creates the lens through which we see ourselves and sometimes blurs the real truth of what we can accomplish. We must understand the incredible power we can obtain and look beyond false limitations.

What force is this that enables us to see through the mist of our past so that we come to know the divine power of self actualization in our future? Is it a whisper from the breath of God or an epiphany of the soul? I believe it is both, in that order, and thus we find the strength to change our lives and become who we are meant to be. We can do anything if we believe in ourselves. Listen to the deep voice inside your chest and take action. Then feast on your possibilities and know yourself again for the first time.

Douglasville Time to Get Moving, Get Active & Get Going

 Since 1983, May has been observed as National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. Individuals and organizations everywhere have joined in the fun to promote awareness of the value of physical activity in the pursuit of happier, healthier, more productive lives. To further this vital mission, the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports reached out in 1994 to both public and private organizations to form the Presidential Fitness Partners in May.

According to Melissa Johnson, executive director of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, “Americans of all ages need to incorporate more movement into their daily lives. Adults need at least 30 minutes of activity 5 days each week. This can be done by choosing to bike or walk instead of driving, taking stairs instead of elevators, or pushing a lawnmower instead of riding one. Children need at least 60 minutes of daily active play. They need to run, climb, jump, and just get up and move around, away from their desks, the television and computer games.”

Twenty minutes of vigorous physical activity three times a week, such as sports, aerobics, working out in the gym, and running, have added health benefits. Johnson says, “ Even 30 minutes a day, broken up into shorter increments of ten or fifteen minutes, can greatly improve your health.”

Gold’s Gym of Douglasville and West Cobb offers fun ways for everyone to get active this month.

Douglasville Zumba Classes – Gold’s Gym Douglasville

The latest workout craze has come to Gold’s Gym Douglasville.  Zumba classes at Gold’s Gym are energetic, exciting and above all filled with all fitness levels and ages. 

What is Zumba?  Zumba is a Latin-inspired workout program that incorporates a number of different types of traditional dances into a fun, group exercise class format.  No matter if you want to improve your cardiovascular system, lose weight, improve your coordination, or boost your mood, Zumba dancing may be just what the doctor ordered!   I love Zumba because you work the entire body.  You have so much fun that you don’t realize how hard you’ve worked until you see the sweat!  It’s a fun easy to follow workout with great music! Cynthia Florence Gold’s Gym Zumba Instructor.    Denise Johnston, a Gold’s Gym Master Instructor finds Zumba motivating and fun. 

 Want to Lose Weight…Zumba is a Weight Loss Solution  Weight Loss is one of the most common reasons that people choose to join a Gold’s Gym group exercise class such as Zumba.  Zumba is a type of cardiovascular exercise, and research has found that participating in cardiovascular exercise is the best way to lose weight. For the average person, engaging in Zumba dance for one hour will burn approximately 400 calories.  Zumba participants, who partner regular participation in Zumba with a healthy nutritional program, find weight loss results.

 Brandi Spence, a Gold’s Gym Member, found great weight loss results with Zumba.  I love the Zumba program because I love to dance and it’s like we go meet up with friends a couple times a week to have a dance party! I have lost 35 lbs since November and I have more energy than I have had in a long time!! I would recommend Zumba to others because not only is Zumba fun but you forget its exercise.   You have fun losing weight and meeting new people! My Fiancé’ loves how I look and I feel more sexy now than I have in years!!

Zumba can also be the answer to anyone who is a bit bored with their current workout routine.  Zumba addresses both of these problems by providing a total body workout in one session and making exercise fun. The music is lively and the mood is incredibly upbeat in a Zumba exercise class. Time goes by quickly because the dance routines are anything but boring.   Gold’s Gym Member Lakisa Conley, not only found a great workout, but it reenergized her fitness routine.   I love the Zumba program because I can’t tell that I am physically working out. It truly feels like I am a party dancing the night away. I have several exercise tapes at home such as Hip Abs and Turbo dance, but I never committed to the work routines. I started taking Zumba classes in July of 2010 and I immediately became hooked to working out. I took Zumba 6-7 days a week. I love the music, routines and the instructors. Zumba is my super cardio party which has allowed me to begin my weight loss program. I lost 10 pounds in the first thirty days and dropped two dress sizes. As of today, I have lost a total of 30 pounds and Zumba was the primary class that I took on a weekly basis. I would definitely recommend Zumba to others because the Zumba fitness program literally changed my life and has inspired me to become an instructor to teach others that you can achieve your fitness goals if you just move your body and commit to your workouts. Nine months ago I was very shy, low self-esteem and lived a very isolated life alone. Today, I am more confident, outgoing, and an emerging social climber. I have a new outlook on life and it all happened when I committed to my weight loss.

Are you ready to party yourself into shape? That’s exactly what the Zumba program is all about. It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving all types of people and fitness levels toward joy and health.  Visit www.GoldsGymWestGa.com to download a FREE WEEK PASS and to view the complete Gold’s Gym class schedule by location.
