  • Zumba certification

    I'm going to be taking the Zumba certification in April (hey Mark says to dance a bit, and I LOVE Zumba). Certification is all day long, and happily they do not provide lunch or other food (that would be a carb haven!). But I need to pack snacks. I will need some carbs as this is an endurance event. But I would like to limit them to good carbs. I mainly want portable protein and fats for this. Any suggestions?

      biltong, jerky, cut veggies of many kinds (such as roots that can be eaten raw like jicama, carrots, beets as well as broccoli, cauliflower, celery, radishes, and whatever else you can think of. and then, if you want, some fruit and nuts.

          I would love to see the faces of your fellow instructors-in-training if you munch on bacon during break! Cooked bacon, hardboiled eggs, cheese, almonds, bananas, mashed sweet potato.

          Zumba is awesome, congrats in advance on your training!

            I agree with the others. Hardboiled eggs, fruit, nuts, cheese, full fat yogurt, etc.

              Too funny Jen! Especially when I tell them how much weight I lost with my primal "candy".

              Thanks! Yes, I'm really looking forward to it. Looking to volunteer in senior centers and any place people could use the light that Zumba brings.

                  Scotch eggs - hard boiled eggs wrapped in sausage. They are usually fried but I bake mine. They are sooooo yummy.

                  Cocoa almonds!

                      Boiled eggs, olives, larabars, sliced grilled chicken and macadamia nuts got me thru my 16 hours of Rescue Diver certification classes this weekend! (chicken breast chosen because it's good cold!)

                      Good luck!!

                            Hello!
                            I am interested in the Zumba certification as well. Can you send me some information on the process please. I am in Atlanta as well.
                            You can post it here or email me at wife2010@gmail.com

                            Thanks so much!

                              You can find instructor training here: Instructor Trainings: Overview — ZumbaŽ

                              Start with the Basics and you can always add on later. I want to be Gold certified to teach seniors eventually.

                              It's an all day class - I've heard it's a blast - just know that you will be dancing pretty much all day, so you do need to be in decent cardio condition.
