good luck! Started Zumba about 2 months ago and love it.  There are good and not so good instructors, so if you don’t love the first class maybe try a different place or instructor.  My place is starting to do this thing called “Piloxing” which is AWESOME too.  It’s like cardio kick boxing, zumba, and pilates all in one and boy does it work the butt!!  You can also get little arm weights that you wear like gloves to help tone the arm muscles!! (this is going to be my next purchase)

Enjoy your zumba!!!!!!!! Don’t get frustrated if you can’t follow the coreography right away though…It takes some time to learn the moves!

I’m totally in the same situation as you – I wouldn’t consider myself fat or anything and in fact (please don’t judge) i’m usually a street size 0 (i’m also like 5 feet tall so I’m pretty short) but recently I went on the scale and realized I’ve gained 10 pounds (10!!) in the past year or so! It totally upset me and I know by no means am I in a bad place, but I think everyone should follow their own standards. I just wanted to get into a routine that made me feel better and more active, so I took up Zumba about a few months ago and I LOVE IT!

I’ve been doing Zumba 2x a week and the Bar Method (it’s like pilates but much more challenging) for a few weeks now consistently and can really really see results! I swear it’s the combination of cardio and toning. My belly pooch has really gotten toned up and I sleep better at night, wake up more energetic and even feel more balanced when I walk!

If you’re interested in Pilates, i HIGHLY recommend the Blogilates Youtube videos – her workouts are really challenging and harder than a lot of the pilates classes in my equinox gym!

Good luck – I’m sure you will look gorgeous in your wedding dress!

@lilcshelli:  Is the Bar Method a class?  If so, does it go by any other names?  We’re overseas and I started Zumba last week and LOVE it.  I have way more energy….sometimes not a good thing for me.  But I’m wanting to strengthen my abs….we have something called Legs, Bums, and Tums.
