Zumba is a great workout!!! My sister is an instructor and we love it. I’m actually planning on taking my Mother-In-Law to her first zumba class on Thursday lol

I LOVE zumba! It is the only form of activity (next to swimming) that I look forward to doing.

I’m trying it tonight for the first time! I’m excited! I have to do my Ripped in 30 DVD first, but that’s only 25 minutes. I’m hoping Zumba will be great, since I got a Groupon for 6 classes for only $20!

My friend is an instructor, and she loves it. I think I will start that up once my foot heals

I’ve done it a few times and it is definitely fun, but I much prefer yoga and pilates. I guess I’m just not good at the structured “do this now or you’ll get run over by the person beside you” stuff.

@kala_way, yeah, I’m nervous about that. I’ve got two left feet.

I really enjoy Zumba and I think it’s super fun.  But, although I do get tired and sweat a lot I did it consistently for a few weeks but never really saw great results as far as toning or weight loss.  And most of the instructors I’ve seen aren’t particularly fit so I’m skeptical of how affective it actually is.

I have lost 10 pounds doing Zumba and cutting my diet to 1200 calories. It definitely tones your waistline and you will lose inches quicker than weight. Try it on the Wii…i love it!!

Ooh, I have a zumba game for PS3 and I love it! It’s a lot of latin/salsa dancing, but I think that’s because my roommate and I are still on easy with it. I actually had a friend who was an instructor, and so she had a few classes at school for our ruhby team, and I loved it Smile She was super intense, so it definitely improved our endurance, if nothing else!

Am I the only one who HATES Zumba?! Haha, I gave it a try.. and I just looked stupid and felt even stupider. And by the end, I wasn’t even sweating. I’ll stick to my spin classes and body pump! Though I sometimes get jealous of the girls who come in big hordes and look like they are having lots of fun..

I’m a BIG Zumba addict, and can really tell physically and mentally when I miss too many classes! Keep in mind that every instructor is different though…I’ve been to some that get my heartrate up and keep it up the entire hour, and I’ve been to others that hardly get me sweating! I usually burn 600-700 calories in a class, and have a blast doing it!  Most of the instructors I see are super fit, and you can’t argue with a workout that is that much fun!!

Well, I did it! I had fun, got sweaty, but have no idea how many calories I burned. I forgot my HRM. The instructor said hers said around 900 but I think that was a high figure. I mean, my heart wasn’t pumping THAT much, so next time I’ll remember to bring my own to get a more accurate reading. The instructor was fun, I liked her a lot, and she was very fit!
