I love Zumba. The place I was doing it has since stopped offering it, but I got the wii Zumba to keep it up. The game is not as fun as the class, but I still get a good workout from it.
I think you could lose 10 lbs just by doing it, but it depends on your body.

Oh, I really like Zumba. I did take me a few classes to get used to some of the moves...but it sure doesn't feel like working out!

Zumba's the best!

If you go to the zumba website ( or maybe, can't recall) and put in your zip code, it will list all the classes in your area. Just message the instructor to make sure the class is still active and find out how much it is per class. You'd be surprised how many there are available!!

I just tried Zumba on Wii Fit, it actually worked up a sweat and was pretty fun. I have dance training in my past so it wasn't hard for me to pick up what they were doing. Has anyone else tried it. The only Zumba classes in my area are while I am working, so this was my only option...

I would like to try it, but they don't have any classes at my gym. Where else should I look for it?

It takes 4 weeks for you to see your body changing.
It takes 8 weeks for your friends and family.
It takes 12 weeks for the rest of the world.

I've been doing an hour long Zumba 2-3 nights per week since the end of last March. I lost about 10 lbs from then until October without changing my diet at all. Since I've started eating better in October I have lost about 15 more. In my class, we do some pure cardio songs, a couple slower songs that are for toning exercises--squats, light/moderate hand weights etc., and several songs that combine the two. I don't do any additional strength training exercises. I wouldn't say I'm bored with Zumba, but it has become somewhat routine even though the instructor adds/changes songs periodically. I have been wanting to change things up a little over the last couple of weeks and decided to start walking for about 30min. during my lunch hour. I would like to add in some strength training and yoga at some point, but I haven't found a way to rearrange my schedule yet so I can do that. Losing the amount of weight you are wanting to lose is definitely doable with Zumba and diet changes.

I'd love to hear success stories from people who have done Zumba. I've just started a class almost 2 weeks ago and I love it! But I'm having a hard time wanting to do anything else, other than some strength training at home on my off days.
Is it possible to lose 10-20lbs doing just Zumba and healthly eating, or should I be incorporating other forms of exercise into my routiine?
