As promised in my email list last week I’m getting back into making some videos. I’ve been having some technical challenges lately, so I don’t have many new routines to share until those “difficulties” get fixed, but did have this routine I’ve been using for Zumba Gold on my iPod and ready to go. I started off with a slightly different version of this routine for Zumba but decided it was a better fit for Zumba Gold so made the transition. I guess my point is you can probably jazz it up to take it back to regular Zumba if you like. The song is Soltero by Tre-O which was on Mega Mix 54.
I show two different options for the up and back section, you can either march up and back or do two cha cha’s forward and skip back. I usually show both options in class and let the ladies decide which they like for themselves.
Because today’s post is pretty short, I decided to do another roundup of “links Suzi’s saved on the Interwebs” in case you see anything of interest!
Alex, the founder of YogiTunes recently contacted me to tell me about his new start-up and it is so cool I wanted to share with all of you.

I haven’t read any of these, and honestly, I don’t know if I ever will, but I’d like to think that I might, haha.
Danielle’s list are always fabulous and my Podcast list needed a few new additions and I found a couple really great ones here. I am especially excited about, “What Should I Read Next” which I started listening to yesterday, and I can see some binge listening to catch up on all back episodes in my future.
There is little chance I’ll get to all of these this winter – or even this year, but there are a couple close enough to where I live that I need to make an effort to get out and see at least those. If you live in Nova Scotia you should be able to find a waterfall or two that you can check out this winter too!
Whether you are a powerlifter, cross-fitter, or fitness class goer, knowing how to squat properly is mega important. Hopefully, you’re equipped with a great coach who can help you perfect your form, but if you’re not and find you are still struggling with the squat this list might help you pinpoint your issues. Actually, even if you do have a good coach, it’s worth checking out. The more you know the better you’ll do.
I think that’s it for today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
