SILVER SPRING, Md. — The growing numbers of home-confined Adventists doing workouts in their living rooms these days has triggered a response from the General Conference.
The Adventist headquarters warned members in a special memo today that “just because you are doing zumba in your living room doesn’t meant it isn’t dancing.”
Adventists have been told to avoid zumba or any other form of dance aerobics “or better yet, any form of exercise set to music that has a beat or is, in any other way, fun to listen to.”
In lieu of such exercise, the GC has suggested Adventists work on their Pathfinder marching skills.
“Done right, fancy drill marching can help you work up quite a sweat,” said the GC memo, “especially when performed correctly, in full-dress uniform.”
