Do you drink enough water?

Water, water, everywhere, but not a drop to drink.

Did you know that approximately 57-60% of your body is composed of just water? It’s true! Water counts for just over half of your body weight, yet a lot of Australians do not drink enough water to even meet their basic daily requirements – Around 75% are considered to be chronically dehydrated. Particularly as the days are getting longer and hotter as it gets into Summer, it is very important that you stay hydrated for the sake of your health.

Do you have a dancing dog or dancing cat?!

I had a lot of fun finding videos of amazing kids dancing so I have done the same this week with animals too! It seems that dancing is not confined to mankind – great dancers can be found all throughout the animal kingdom.

This British duo – Kate and Gin – managed to get to the final of Britain’s Got Talent a couple of years ago. They’ve come with a new genre of dance – canine freestyle…!


This cockatoo has definitely got rhythm! Some of them have been known to sing along to some songs as well as dance along to them.

Student report: My first Zumba class!

Zumba Fitness at Logan Dance

Today I tried my first Zumba class. Being a newbie I arrived nice and early and caught the end of the 9am Hip Hop class which looked like a lot of fun, I am not sure how they managed to remember all the steps, but it looked very funky with everyone in unison!

10am rolled around and in came Jason the Zumba instructor, there were about 15 or 20 people there for the class and Jason seemed to spot all the new people straight away which was very comforting.

We got straight into the first routine and it really wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Each song brings a new set of steps, but they were pretty easy to pick up. I had to laugh at my lack of co-ordination for a few moves and I could hear similar chuckles from others in the group as we found our arms and legs going in very different directions to Jason’s at the front of the studio.

The best thing about the class was despite how unfit I am, I was enjoying myself so much that I didn’t even noticed that I was jumping around for a whole hour.

This is definitely a fun way to get fit and the added bonus was just how lovely the other people in the class were. Even when I managed to bang into one woman, she just smiled kindly as if she may have done that once or twice herself once upon a time!

This is definitely my new Saturday morning treat; look out for the girl laughing and doing the wrongs steps and that is probably me!
