Sparkle Bites: Skechers Zumba Fitness Fun

One of my goals is to exercise more, since I’ve been feeling so lethargic lately. So when Frances of Topaz Horizon invited me to join the Skechers Zumba event, I decided to just go for it.

Walking to the Zumba area with my new Skechers Flex (P3,495). I like that it has memory foam for extra comfort and no laces so they're easy to slip on.

I have to admit—I was kinda nervous to join a Zumba class. Haha, I’m not exactly coordinated and I don’t really follow dance moves too well. I’m glad I stepped out of my comfort zone though because I had a lot of fun!

I think one of the main reasons it was so much fun was because of the very hot and sexy Columbian Zumba instructor, Monica Pulgarin. She was Skechers’ special guest from Dubai!

This chick is hot stuff and she dances soooo well! #goals

It felt so good to get my body moving again (blood circulation is good for your skin!) and it was a lot of fun to see everyone just go for it. I gotta say—the shoes really helped, too! I didn’t feel like I had to worry about tripping over my own feet (chunky rubbershoes make me do that) or like they were going to slip off.

The wind down! Class was just an hour, but man, it was quite a cardio workout!

Before the event, Frances actually asked what kind of makeup is best for workouts. I don’t normally wear anything, but if you’re going to be with friends or taking photos, I suggest the following: a pink-ish lipstick, brows, and waterproof mascara. If you’re going to be outdoors, then sunscreen is a definite must. Otherwise, I reco that you ditch your bases (like foundation or even BB creams) to avoid clogging your pores. It’s not worth the acne!

See? You'll get a rosy flush anyway from working out. If you have a towel and dab your sweat (we didn't, haha), you'll look a lot fresher!

Thank you to Frances and Skechers for the fun class! I’m officially a convert! If you guys know where I can take a good Zumba class in Manila, leave a comment and let me know please. I need to exercise!! ♥
