I've done the Zumba DVD twice and have plans to do it tomorrow with two friends. It works me at the top of my exercise limit, My middle back was sore after the 20 minute ab workout (totally a stand-up deal). But I knew it was muscle soreness and it went away after a day and 1/2. The weather here has been nice (Alabama) the last two days and I played tennis with my husband and son. That was great fun.

I am so excited - I finally found a class in my area. The local YMCA has formed two classes and is offering a coupon for the first class FREE! After that it will cost $4 per class; and I don't have to purchase a full membership which I can't afford at this time.

Maybe your local YMCA is offering something similar.

Does that mean you pay a dollar each day you want to take a class? That is NOT bad for Zumba. Your health is worth a sacrifice in another area, if you can swing it. :) Zumba brings REAL RESULTS, because it's fun you put more into it!

Sorry I'm such a poster child. I LOVE ZUMBA so very much!

Sounds like Zumba is lots of fun. A new gym opened in my city. They advertise Zumba. the sign says classes for $1 a day. Going to check into this. but I already have a membership with Curves and really cant afford much more.

Yeah after I just now re-read your post, sounds like they just can't use the name. If that's true, you're in for a really fun workout! WOO HOO!!! I'm so happy for you!

Latin Impact is not Zumba. Well, it shouldn't be. I was told LA Fitness would not hire Zumba because of something they might have had to pay for the rights to use the name. Who knows.

Anyway, ask the instructor if she is a Zumba instructor. He or she COULD be a Zumba instructor just not allowed to advertise as such. There IS a difference. HAVE FUN!

OMG, my LA Fitness does have it, it's just listed as "Latin Impact" instead (for corporate reasons they said). I am soooooo going next week to try it out (I missed it by one day :( )

Some people make a "youtube playlist" that they can play off their computer to use. Good luck! And TELL YOUR GYM that you want ZUMBA! Tell them that they can get on www.zumba.com to find instructors in the area who then can audition for them! ZUMBA DRIVES MEMBERS INTO OUR GYM here in Central PA. It is seriously THE HOOK for so many. We run 17 classes a week and all classes most usually have 15-40 people. They will like those numbers.

I understand that completely. :) I have tried to find a class in my area, specifically at my gym that I'm a member of, but they don't offer it at the one I'm a member at and I can't really afford additional costs right now. Thanks for the reply though. :)

Hi Natalie,

As an instructor I'm sure what you saw on youtube was a live class. You can't duplicate that on DVD at home. The thing is with the DVD, it will be similar steps and Beto does use the hand signals as a live instructor usually does, but every class is different, every instructor different, and in live classes you get not only the vibe of the room when everyone is having fun, but the instructor will change the songs out every so often and mix them up, so you never know what's next! Have you tried to find a class in your area?

:)

Hi everyone, I just recently heard about the latest craze, Zumba. I'm trying to find some Zumba DVD's that are actually fun like dancing rather than just instructional. I found this Zumba class video on YouTube yesterday that really got me pumped up about it and wanting to start right away (first link below).

I found someone on ebay that is selling a group of Zumba videos of Beginners, Advanced, Power and Abs/Buns/Thighs group set (second link below).

I was trying to find example videos of these and I'm not having much luck. Have any of you purchased these DVD's before and is it anything like the YouTube video of the fun class I found??

Thanks,
Natalie
