I was doing Zumba 4 times a week. I'm in therapy for my ankle. I can't wait to get back to Zumba. I really miss it. Ankle injury not from Zumba.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

would love to do it more often, but I can only afford once a week.

Thank you for the feedback. I do Zumba on an average of 4 days a week and I change up the intensity depending on if I did strength training or not. The day I do strength training I do a short class at medium intensity. On the days I don't I go all out.

Zumba was my way of switching up on my cardio because I was hitting a plateau with my weight loss. But since I have started I am seeing great results. Aside from all of the cardio and strength training I feel a need for a good massage to help loosen my body...Stretching only does so much. :-)

I think a day or two of rest from exercise each week is important. Also keep in mind that after 4-6 weeks of doing the same thing all the time, your body gets used to it. So it's important to make sure your routine has variety (and be sure you're including regular strength training) in order to keep your body challenged and seeing results.

Glad you've found a workout you enjoy!

We have a weekly class at work. I've not been able to go the first 2 times, hoping to be able to go next week.

I could do Zumba every day of the week. Is there a such thing as too much?
