As I’ve said semi-vaguely on here, I’m trying to lose weight. I only gained 28 while pregnant, and lost it all right after. Then, I went on a carb binge and gained it all back. So, I’ve been counting carbs, and exercising. Which brings me to my point.
Zumba. I assume everyone’s heard of it, unless you live under a rock. I stumbled across a video online and decided to try it. I love it. It doesn’t feel like exercise, I burn a ton of calories. Awesome, right?
Almost. Meet Beto.
I had no idea who he was, just thought he was a random host. That he was a ginormous douche, as you can see from the hat in the picture above. I try to exercise, and I hear his voice. Ugh. He dances with, well air humps is more precise, random exercisers in the videos. It’s very creepy. In one video, the woman who is co-hosting doesn’t speak THE WHOLE TIME. She shakes and shimmies around, and he, with his accent reminiscent of Hank Azaria in The Birdcage, prances around, yapping along. Sometimes, even singing along. Dear god.
Then, I stumble across an article online in Men’s Health. This guy CREATED Zumba. He’s not just some random douchebag, he’s THE douchebag. The only way I can get through working out to Zumba anymore is to think mean, ugly, thoughts about Beto.
I used to workout to Denise Austin tapes, and as annoying as she was, she never came close to bugging me as much as this guy.
So, Zumba, please make more videos without him. I get that he’s the creator, but Bill Gates didn’t slap his face on everyone’s computer, so this guy doesn’t have to be in all these videos. My blood pressure thanks you.
