I hope you enjoyed you Thanksgiving dinner and the time spent with family. Have you had a chance to try some healthier dishes or did you enjoy Thanksgiving to the fullest? Since we are between the holidays, please make sure to move around more and make healthier food choices most days.

And here is a way to burn some serious calories – Z-U-M-B-A! Since its inception in 2001, the Zumba program has grown to become the world’s largest – and most successful – dance-fitness program with more than 14 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba classes in over 140,000 locations across more than 150 countries.

Special Guest: Rudy Flores, Zumba Instructor

Rudy first started Zumba in January 2011 and has been hooked ever since. She enjoys all types of music, but latino beats are what really move him. He teaches Zumba class at First United Methodist Church Lufkin. Since he discovered Zumba Rudy has lost 70lbs and is still dropping.  At the same time he has gained the courage to pursue other fitness goals including running and body building.

“If you think your body can never change or you have been told “thats just your body type” think again!!! If i can do it you can too!!  Come be apart of the easiest way to loose weight and get fit! Let Loose come feel the BEAT!!”
