Hello to all! I'm just coming back to SP after a long break and some weight gain. UGH. I just started going to Zumba classes and love it! Does anyone know if there is any information for learning the steps/dances other than a beginners class? Beginners classes aren't offered in my area at a time when I can attend. I feel like I'm tripping up my class and need remedial Zumba! LOL

Nothing is impossible. The word itself say's "I'M POSSIBLE"!

Too bad the closest classes here are a 45 min. drive away. I'd buy somebody's used dvds. New sets are pricey.

Hello all, I joined spark a couple years ago because my dad had success with it but I kept getting distracted, got back on a long while back but didn't have or make time for it and now my husband and I are both working on losing, using the app makes it so much easier to keep count and I like it much better than lose it or my fitness pal that I have used before. I also started doing zumba a couple months ago and was losing pounds doing it so it definitely was working for me, but I was finishing grad school and just stopped having time to do it at the time. I finished school in May and since my husband has been losing using Spark, I have started back up with him and have been going back to Zumba the last couple weeks and I love it! I am down about 5 pounds already and between counting calories and doing Zumba I hope to continue working toward my goal.

I have committed to making it two times a week to my local classes (hoping more but depends on my schedule and someone has to help cook dinner some of the time too lol) and I WANT to start getting up and doing the xbox zumba workout too but that is the hardest for me is to get up in the morning and do it! I know I can't do it at the end of the day after working all day with kids I have a hard time with that (silly since I will get dressed and drive down the road to a local class, but It is easier and more motivating if someone else goes with me and some of my friends zumba ) so part of my next goal is to do at home workouts on the days I am not going to class.

Anything is possible, It's your choice whether or not you choose to make IT happen

HI! I found your team by searching for "zumba shoes"...so I joined Sparkpeople and now your team! I am just starting Zumba classes and everyone's enthusiasm for Zumba was so infectious , I can hardly wait to start. My first class is on Tuesday!

I have a friend in another state and when I saw how great she looked at my last visit, she said it was all because of Zumba. Oh, and how do you add the "ticker"...I could not find it on my spark page.....thanks!

Hello all. I hope I am doing this right. A little back story. I had a stroke 2-1/2 years ago. I am pretty much back to "normal" now. Anyway. I gained about 50lbs since then. I started weight watchers jan 1st. Would like to lose 30 lbs for now. I tried Zumba at the gym like 4 months ago. It was fun. But the gym is hard to get to of me. So today I got Zumba wii. Love it!!!! Such a fun and great workout. Here's to weight loss and healthier us!!!!! Cheers. With just eater of course :)

That's awesome that you are getting into Zumba Jess. Wow Tigger you really get your zumba in for the week. I'm hoping to start going to classes again, it's been forever, just looking for one with the right vibe. I just got the new Wii Core game so I'll try that out and see how I like it. Yeah to a new year of ZUMBA!

AWESOME!!! Welcome to the group. I am looking forward to my classes starting up again tomorrow. I teach 6 classes a week, and attend 3 others. Zumba has helped me lose 35 lbs and kept me from getting bored with my workouts. :0)
