Ask me how I shake!
This past Monday, 12 determined participants embarked on Zumba® Fitness’s new Shake Shake Shake Challenge.
I’ll be honest. I love Zumba. I’ve been a Zumba instructor for over 6 years. However, when I first heard that Zumba® Fitness was introducing their own protein shake, I actually rolled my eyes. Did they not realize how many protein shakes are out there?! How were they going to break through in this overcrowded market space? People had their own shakes that they loved and were devoted to! I received an invitation for a test group getting together to learn more about the product and the program. So, for my love of Zumba (and to be perfectly honest, not for my desire to try the product) I went to learn more.
After leaving the meeting, I was excited and more than willing to introduce the Zumba Shake Shake Shake Challenge to my class participants. If there were only two main things I took away that day it would be 1) This is a program. It is not just a protein shake. Zumba put a lot of effort into the great online dashboard that includes workout videos, meal plans with recipes, goal tracking and shopping lists. 2) The shake itself is good. Not only does it taste good (La Vida Mocha is my personal favorite), but it’s made with good ingredients. It’s gluten free with no GMOs or whey. It’s got no added sugar or artificial flavors. Now, it may not taste like a Haagen Daaz milkshake, but let’s be honest. What protein shake actually does? (If you think one does, I challenge you to actually go and drink a cold, frothy, sweet milkshake! You will change your mind!). In true Zumba style, the shakes have fun names like Thrilla in Vanilla, Coco Loco and La Vida Mocha.
What I love the most about the shake is that it’s only 100 calories. Why so few calories? Zumba designed it this way so you can either simply add water and use it as a snack or add nut butter, fruits and veggies to create a hearty meal replacement. (Please know that I do not recommend drinking it with only water to replace a meal! A 100 calorie meal is just craziness and not at all healthy!)
I didn’t know what to expect from my classes in terms of their interest. But the shake was sampled and well received! So here we are at the tail end of the first week of a jump start challenge. Can’t wait to see the results from all who are working hard!
