Zumba With Penny in Mazatlan, Mexico

We attended Zumba class taught by Penny Fuller this morning in Mazatlan. Yes, Jon really did Zumba, too! It was so much fun!  There were between 40 and 50 people attending, and 5 of them were men, so Jon didn't feel out of place.  

Penny is such an inspiration.  She is 70 years old, and has been teaching Zumba since she was 65.  Penny says she loves Zumba and what it has done for her health and for her body.  She makes exercising fun for everyone in her class. She says that it doesn't matter which direction you are moving, as long as you are moving and having fun.  I could see by the smiles on the faces around me that I wasn't the only one having a great time!  I can't wait to go again on Monday!

Penny's class is held outside in a public park on the basketball court.  It's a great setting, surrounded by trees that provide shade.  I felt so fortunate to find this class, just 4 blocks from the Mar Rosa RV Park where we are staying for the next two weeks.
