Zumba Anyone? Camas Community Center.
Are you ready to ditch the workout and join the party called Zumba? I’ve been told by a fellow Realtor (Richard Yates) that I should consider Zumba as an alternative to running. Apparently, since I’ve recently fallen, (Oops, I did it again), actually twice this summer, (Help me I think I'm Falling), he thinks it might be a safer alternative.
However, I think that if you have problems keeping upright while putting one foot in front of the other, imagine how dangerous it could be by adding more complicated motions to the process? No thank you, I think I’ll leave the Zumba to another fellow Realtor. Apparently, Melinda Peterson loves to Zumba - all the time!
Fall and winter months make it more difficult to get motivated for outdoor exercise. Perhaps, it’s time for you to consider an indoor class such as Zumba? The Camas Community Center gives Camas and Washougal residents affordable year-round fitness, and Zumba is one of the many classes they offer.
If, like myself, you feel Zumba might not be your best choice, consider a Yoga or Pilates class. Personally, I think Pilates is one of the best forms of exercise, and coupled with an aerobic program (such as running), you can develop a good level of fitness. Plus, I've never fallen while doing Pilates. Although, I suspect if I used a reformer, it's possible.
While plans (and hopes) are in place to eventually build a new facility, the Camas Community Center is currently operating out a 93 year old structure that once served as a school. The building is located on SE 7th Avenue in downtown Camas. The Center is managed by the Camas Parks and Recreation Department.
If you're looking for a good way to stay fit once the rainy cool weather returns to the Camas-Washougal area, this is an affordable local resource. Zumba class anyone? You've got it, and many more classes to choose from, at the Camas Community Center.
