zumba is a great place to start. try not to worry about how you may feel you look and remember most people in the class feel the same way. I love that i go to the class and it is filled with women of all shapes and sizes and all different levels of ability. The best classes are the ones where you lose yourself in the music and don't really care what you look like to others. I go to two very different classes and I will say that the smaller class is alittle more intimitating for me because you can't blend in when there is only 4 people. but remember you are probably paying to be there so you get the most out of it that you possibly can. you will feel better afterwards for sure.
Hi folks. I'm new to Spark (well new again, it's been years) and I'm super new to the Zumba phenomenon. I wanted to take the classes they offer at the YMCA, but I'm so afraid of looking like an idiot. So I purchased the Zumba game for Wii to get my workout and learn the routines. I figure even if the routines aren't the same at the YMCA, the practice with the Wii will help me gain my coordination back a bit before jumping into the classes in person.
I'm hoping that Zumba is my ticket to something close to my pre-kid body! I enjoy dancing and love lation music, so that's a good start right! So my plan is to lose 30lbs by October 30, 2011 so that I can fit into an adorable costume for the annual Halloween Party called Dracula's Ball! It's an odd goal, but hey it's motivating the heck out of me!
Thanks for reading and I hope to chat with you all soon. Jennifer
