Hi. I'm new to Zumba but not to SP. I was feeling like I needed a change in my workout, as I get bored easy and Zumba looked so fun that I ordered the dvd's. I live in a small town and couldn't find Zumba nearby that worked with my schedule so I'm working out at home. My zumba dvd's just came today so I did the basic to learn the moves and then did the 20 min express workout. I found some of the moves challenging but feel that I will get it over time. I have been doing Bollywood dance workouts and hip hop abs before this. I have to say, the zumba workout was fun and the 20 min was not as hard as I thought it would be...I tend to have 2 left feet sometimes.

Hi- new to this website and just started zumba last week. Decided that going to the gym just wasn't enough for me- turns out I do much better in a "class" setting. First zumba was 20/20/20- that was intense and I didn't know what to expect. Do most places have different types of zumba classes? Is there a better one to start with?

Your biggest challenge isnít someone else. Itís the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells, "CANíT", but you donít listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

I have been doing the DVD's from Zumbafitness.com for about 4 months now and absolutely love them. Some of the moves are a little hard to pick, but you evidently get them or some variation and I love the results! Good Luck to you.

Amazon carries the dvds too. Perhaps they'll have a beginning one there.

I watched several routines on You Tube. I know my attempt will be a sorry sight! I have not ordered the expensive set. I'll look for one beginner's dvd.
Any ideas?

Hi! I'm Amy. I'm new to Zumba and to the team. I ordered the Zumba dvds online and have gone through the basic program 4x now. I have been doing this with my stepdaughter (9 yrs old) for the past week as a way to spend time together this summer dancing. It's a great workout and I love it!

I'll call Target. They usually carry exercise dvds. I don't want to wait for ordering online. I bought my 30 Day Shred last year from Target.
