Investing in Fitness by Dancing With ClubFitz Videos

ClubFitz Quote by Lauren Fitz and Kelsi Comer

While looking for Zumba videos, I found Club Fitz on YouTube. I put together a workout for myself with some of my favorite videos from their channel, which I just worked out to again last night. I’ll be sharing that below, but first a bit about ClubFitz.

About ClubFitz

ClubFitz is run by Lauren Fitz who is a doctor in addition to a dancer (and I recently learned from her ClubFitz bio is also a military spouse) and Kelsi Comer. Awhile ago they announced in a vlog they won’t be posting YouTube videos anymore except for teasers but they will be posting on their website. With a free FITzBasic membership at ClubFitzFitness.com, you’ll have access to some of their privately linked videos. They’ll also have a paid FITzPro memberships for the price of two Starbucks coffees, as they say, (about $10) which includes more videos and choreography tutorials. I had signed up to be informed about the site’s launch but forgot to create a profile until now (oops!) which you need to do if you want to have access to the basic membership and the blossoming ClubFitz community. You can also find ClubFitz on Pinterest. (You can find me there also).

The Videos

Below you’ll find the videos the ClubFitz YouTube channel I use as a workout, which lasts about 22 minutes. If that’s not long enough, you can always find another song on their channel or website, borrow a song or two from my post about Zumba songs or do some pushups and sit-ups. However, the first time I worked up a sweat in 22 minutes and was satisfied to call this my workout for the day. The second time, this workout took the place of a walk and I followed it with Les Mills Pump Flow, which I’lll tell you about sometime in the future.

As with the Zumba post, you may want to pull these up and pause them so they have time to buffer before you get to them. You can also find the songs in a playlist here.

Hasta Que Salga El Sol

Thriftshop (Lauren says this was actually their first video that went viral).

Single Ladies

Go Girl

Makina

Que Viva La Vida

I hope you’ve enjoyed this list of songs from ClubFitz. If you did, make sure to head over to their site to sign up for one of their memberships.

Speaking of memberships, you can sign up for a Free Team Beachbody Membership giving you access to the community message boards and the SuperGym, where you can track workouts. The Premium Team Beachbody Club Membership is also an option. For $2.99 a week you’ll get access to Beachbody On Demand (free streaming of a select library of Beachbody workouts), sample workouts, personalized meal plans, 10% off all Beachbody products and more. Hope to see you there!

Create Your Own Home Workout With Zumba Videos on YouTube

Create Your Own Home WorkoutAs much as I enjoy following a Beachbody home workout program, sometimes I like to mix it up. At one point, I decided to try Zumba at home. I remembered Gina at The Fitnessista is a Zumba instructor who had posted some videos before, so I went to her blog to find them and see if she had posted any others.

Serendipity! A search wasn’t necessary because she’d written a post that day about using YouTube videos to work out at home, and the first part of her post was on Zumba. She had provided all the dances you need to search for to create a full Zumba workout at home. Hurray!

I waded through YouTube videos for awhile. Some songs drove me crazy. Others had camera angles that made the moves hard to follow. Many were restricted in Germany. I found a few that worked, tried them, and had fun. Then I managed to forget about pulling together my own workout as I had other ones I was doing.

This January, instead of following a program, I did whatever workout struck my fancy each day. I remembered trying these Zumba videos and decided to finally follow Gina’s suggestion, searching for songs to create a full class. Pulling the list together took longer than working out to the videos, but now I have a playlist I can do again in the future. I’m passing it on to you so you can try it as well.

I’ve never done a live class, so I can’t say whether these are good instructions and/or dances that match what they’re described as. Some of the videos go in and out of focus as well. But it’s a starting point to working out for free in the comfort of your own home. If you do these 9 songs straight through, you’ll have about a 33 minute long workout. I had an issue with buffering on a few, so you may want to pull them up in different tabs, hit pause, and let them load for awhile before beginning. You can either watch them below or in my YouTube playlist.

If it throws you off that the instructor is facing you and you’re used to someone facing the same direction, set your computer up far enough behind a full-length mirror that you have room to move around, stand a bit off to the side so that you can see the screen, and viola, you’ll be facing the same direction as the instructor. Enjoy!

1. Warm-up

2. Salsa

3. Cumbia

4. Reggaeton

5. Merengue

6. Flamenco

7. Bellydance

8. Quebradita

9. Cool Down

I hope you had fun trying this “class” comprised of YouTube videos and that perhaps it has inspired you to create your own home workout this way. If you want to do Zumba at home but don’t want to spend time pulling together songs, you may also want to check out this playlist I found toward the end of my search which has full length classes on it.

If you have a favorite Zumba YouTube video, please share it in the comments below!
