A lady I have talked to at both gyms was reluctant to try Zumba. I talked her into doing it the other day, and she loved it.
So today she looked into a class, and saw mats, and weights. She came to me as she wasn’t sure.
I had my boxing wraps on, so suggested she try it out. First off she said ‘No’, and I explained that I would show her the stance, how to protect herself, and 3 basic moves. She agreed, so I went out to my car, and got her wraps, and gloves.
I spent a long time with the stance, and gloves up. With the jab, I make sure that it comes back, before going again. We do it slow to get it right. We also did 2 other combinations. Then went back over them again. It took around 20 minutes, and she loved it.
As we were about the walk away, a guy my age stopped us, and said that wouldn’t work, and we needed to get into the bag, with arms, etc. I think he thought I was stupid. I informed him it was the first time she had put gloves on, and that over the next weeks she will be learning a lot more. He continued to go on about what he knew, and I walked up to him, looked him straight in the eyes, put my hands on his shoulders, and brought my knee up within inches of his ………. He said that as I was looking into his face, he didn’t expect it. I said that’s why I wanted to show you.
Later after doing some more working out on my own, I was getting reading to leave, and he said that I should be an ambassador for the gym, as I was in fantastic shape, and never stopped. Nice that he changed his tune.
Had a quick protein shake, and then back out again to Loadmoreplate for boxing with my trainer. Fantastic morning.
