@chasesgirl:  Good luck, but you’ll be fine! Zumba’s fun rather than lethal. I’m not saying it’s not a good cardio workout, but you’re likely to be enjoying yourself too much to feel defeated.

One tip: don’t care how silly you look, because everyone looks daft doing Zumba!

I love Zumba! It’s the one workout at the gym I always will make myself go to. I’m to scared to go to Spinning or a few of the other classes they offer. I’m not saying I won’t eventually go to them, but Zumba is a always a good time and I leave every single time with a huge smile on my face knowing I worked out and had fun. I tell myself if I lose another 20lbs I’ll get into P90X or R.I.P.P.E.D but for right now I’m perfectly content dancing like a fool to Kesha and Pitbull.

I’ve done Zumba a few times and I’m pretty uncoordinated, so my attempts are always laughable.

I recommend trying a few different classes (maybe hunt for a Groupon).  I pay for 5 classes a month with my gym and I love the variety.  I do warrior (weight training), PIYO, power pilates, yoga, and the cardio classes they provide (including Zumba).  It really depends on what mood I’m in but I’m always nice and sore after.

When I stuck to one class or worked out on my own, I didn’t see results quite as quick.  Doing something different all the time works out new muscles and gives your body time to recover.

Have fun!!

If you’re looking for something else fun you should look into Kangoo Boots. There’s lots of dance/cardio routines with them on YouTube too!

Good luck with Zumba, I’ve never tried it but it looks fun!

@chasesgirl:  So you’d recommend it? I enjoy Zumba on the wii but would be quite nervous about going to a class…
