congratulations, and welcome carla,
have you looked into curves, and victory lady, and women only fitness centers?
i get the curves coupons from spark mailer all the time, in fact, they sent me the same 5 emails with the coupon for free zumba classes, and one week free membership. i know they have good deals sometimes. victory lady here is only $20 a month and i know people who really like it.

Assalamo Alukom Carla,
Congratulations that you are muslim wa alhamdolellah, and to be in our team.

assaalamu alaik kum carla.first alhamdullah and congratulations on becoming muslim,may allah reward you for your choice inshallah.i hear you loud and clear over the exercise i was the same when i joined islam especially with the swimming asd prior to islam i used to swim 3 miles every day some times more.infact i had picked my flat as it was only two minutes away from the swim baths lol.you could look around near you to see if there is a womens only bathing inthe near from you.most swim baths do that at least once a week same with aqua aroebics you could easily find an all womans class.then a t-shirt and bicycle shorts will do for covering as recomended in islam when with other women.re zamba there are lots of zumba dvd´s out there you can work to at home even a zumba programme for the wii if you have one.you could also look in your area maybe there is another zumba class or equvulant with a women instructure.or like a group of women around me they have set up their own exercise group and use the local community centre for a free room.also there are lots of other exercises you can do out there wearing jogging hoses etc.biking,running,jogging,nordic walking.even though istill miss my swimming everyday i go swimming when i can and so look forward to going to visit my husband´s family every year in tunisia so i can go swimming i even have had an islamic swimming costumn made for me.and can swim several times aday.you have heard of the saying where there is a will there is away.inshallah my allah guide you to the exercises you like and can do.assaalamu alaik kum,karima

My name is carla, and i am 23 yrs old, single mom, sparkmember as well as new muslim. it is a little harder to do things that i love to do being muslim, for instance i adore zumba, it is great exercise, it burns so many calories and gives me so much energy. but i abide by the islamic dress guidelines so i feel that i cannot go. when i went i would wear a pair of running capris (not too tight) and an excercise shirt with a long baggy tee over it. there is only one male at the zumba class and it is the instructor, i want to go back so bad, i used to go three times a week but i cant do it in those clothes cause it is considered inappropriate. as well as running and swimming,i swim and run in about the same things i would wear to zumba. please help sisters cause i am missing my favorite exercises. and it is making me back track even worse. im not sure what to do about that
with that out of the way i am a new muslim and would love to make new friends that can support me while i can support them. any tips and hints and support is greatly appreciated as well as i will support and help and share tips than i know.
I hope everyone is well!!!
