I have joined a zumba class. What a work out. My legs weight about 500 lbs each afterwords. (LOL) But it is fun too. There is about 20 of us and leader gives us quite a work out. According to my fitbit I work about 350 calories off. It is only 3 times a week. Some of those girls are so tiny and really know the routine. I can't wait until I'm one of them.

    I love zumba and do it 5 times a week--that's why I know the routines and you will too very soon. Everyone starts out confused but you know they use the same steps in many songs so after a while the steps become familiar. I agree 100%, it is a great workout. It gets your heart rate up, works every single part of your body and is great for core and abdominals. And the music becomes addicting. Never thought I'd enjoy listening to that type of music but when I hear those songs, I immediately think of the zumba dance. Keep it up. It's the best thing to do, find something you enjoy and you'll keep at it and it will get easier as you get stronger.

    Zumba is SO much fun, I love it! I was self conscious at first, but the instructor was really encouraging, and would demonstrate the steps afterward (also encouraged me to modify some of the faster portions). It's a blast!!!

    Yes there are tiny girls in my class too. But one instructor told me she weighed 75 pounds MORE when she started Zumba than she does now (she's normal weight now). She is a real inspiration to those of us that are still on a journey to lose weight!

    I hear so much about zumba classes! I wish that I can try a zumba class! Lucky you! Health reasons prevent me. Prayer-fully, one day! It sounds like so much fun; besides a good workout!
