Zumba is a lot of fun! it doesn’t really feel like a workout and If you get a good teacher you can burn a lot of calories. I don’t think three days would be overdoing it since it isnt too intense on your body. I HATE running so I use Zumba as one of my cardio workouts 🙂

I find myself sometimes going 5 days a week! Zumba is such a great cardio workout, and so fun! I go with my mom & sisters and my Mother & Sister In-laws to be:) we’re all “sweating for the wedding” together. I hope your studio is as fun as ours!!!

I’m in a show at the moment, so after we close this Saturday will get back into my regular zumba routine which is 4 days a week, with 2 classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays – normal zumba class, followed by zumba toning. Wednesdays is zumba core which really works on your core (duh!) and Monday is a normal zumba class. So much fun!

I live in a REALLY small town and we only have class once a week on Wednesdays.  I like it because it breaks my week up as well as my regular workouts.  I totally agree with the PP about the instructor.  The one that I currently have is pretty low impact.  We had someone else for one of the weeks and it was really high impact.  It’s a good solid hour of exercise though.  Good luck!!

No two Zumba classes/instructors are alike, and some can be pretty intense especially when first starting out! I had one instructor where I thought I was going to throw up during class when I first started. That lady had way too much energy 🙂 I suggest planning on 1 (maybe 2) classes your first week or so and judging how sore you are afterwards 🙂 

@Missknicole:  Yes, Zumba is so much better than running IMO!! Running used to wreck my knees but I’ve been doing Zumba for almost 2 years now and so far so good- maybe since the jumping and all the other moves aren’t as repetitive as running or something.

@Creiddylad:  I do Zumba – it’s my winter months workout method (when it’s too cold/dark to go outside).  I love to ski on the weekends, but this gives me something to do midweek.

I am not on a schedule though.  Right now my head feels feverish and my IT band is all jacked up from Zumbaing 2.5 hours a few weeks ago (I was having a lot of fun).

You can do it for free if you have decent internet!  I get a bunch of Youtube Zumba videos streaming (MalloryHotMess is my fave), hook it up to the flat screen and stereo in the basement, and do them at home.  I normally go barefoot as it’s carpetting.   They are just videos of instructors in their classes, not real Zumba officially made videos.

@Creiddylad:  Can you watch any YouTube videos?  You could let them load up all the way (put each one in a new tab on your internet browser) then play on a low/decent quality (not all the way in HD).  I usually have to get a few loading as the wifi in the basement is not as strong. 

Here’s one the try:  (they don’t work on Smartphones)

My mom is out in the boonies and Hughes Net doesn’t work that well, so I know what you mean.
