Usually 2 times a week...would like to do it more,but the instructor I really like isn't nearby.
One of the classes I take is water zumba-but the water is usually pretty cold...and it is
every other week.I really like when I can get in 2-3 zumba classes and 2-3 times of weights.

Laura, those are fun (I do them, too!), but if you've never tried an actual class, I urge you to do so. There is just nothing like the environment of a class with an instructor who loves Zumba. :)

I do Zumba just about every day. I teach Zumba, so I am always working on a new song to put in and such. I do work a lot, though, so sometimes if I'm working a double shift, I don't do the Zumba, I get what sleep I can! LOL. I love it, though. I Zumba every chance I get. I used to run a lot, but not so much anymore . . . ;) I still run the occasional 5K.

I'm lucky if I get to do it twice a week--occasionally I get to do it 3x in a week. Class offerings are extremely limited where I live and my instructors are a VERY flaky lot.

I sometimes get to do more Zumba when I travel to larger cities.

I really wish that I could use the DVDs, but I don't have a space at home where I can do it without bothering others or injuring myself. I swim, do cardio and lift weights on the other days of the week. I also walk on the beach and do authentic Latin dancing at least once a month.

Edited by: AZULVIOLETA6 at: 8/5/2012 (18:27)
Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Once or twice...it depends. I jog consistantly 3 times a week and I try to make sure I do strength training total body 1 day a week. So I ususally Zumba on my active rest day and or pair a short class with my resistance training.

As often as possible! I try to get in about 5 times if I can along with several power walks, at least one run and hopefully a different video one day- like Tae Bo or Pilates.

Started about 2 months ago with 1once a week-then twice- last week I started going 3x
The place I go does 3-4 classes a day and one on Sat so it's easy to go when I want. They have an unlimited class pass for 60 bucks a month that I may get soon and then I'll go for more ;)

It depends on the week and what I have planned. Sometimes, I do Zumba once a week. On other weeks, I do 5 days. I vary my workout.

I started about 2 weeks ago (Zumba 2 on the Wii) and have it scheduled for 5 days a week, but I've only done it 4 times a week so far. This week, I'll be doing 5 days.

I started out with 20 minutes, then jumped to 45 minutes starting the next day... now I do 60 minute classes.

So fun!

I use the home DVDs Zumba Exhilaration and Ripped. I alternate them every day. I do Zumba 7 days a week sometimes 8! I just finished the 10 day challenge to start the DVDs but I love them and I plan on doing it everyday. It's a fun way to work out!

I've been going two times a week since Aug. Adding 3rd day this Saturday and a 4th starting Monday. I'm a bit obsessed! emoticon

Well, looks like I'm sticking to three times a week. The Monday night class was a disappointment, the instructor was nice but not nearly as good as my normal instructor. She wasn't very encouraging and didn't give very good cues for difficult moves.

I Zumba five days a week without fail! I am finally putting myself first. I have arranged my schedule around the zumba classes at our gym. My kids are always texting me "What time is Zumba today, Mom???" They know I will be there at some point in the day. It is so much fun and I look forward to it every day. My gym bag and dance shoes are ALWAYS in the car.

Some people dream of success... while others wake up and work hard at it. ~Author Unknown

I take Zumba 3x a week Friday, Sunday and Monday. Though I don't have to pay since my gym offers it to members it's so popular that I have to wait 30min on Sundays to sign up and on Mondays 45min before the class. I really love Zumba so I wait all that time to sign up. After a year of this I've decided to take the instructor workshop and hopefully I can teach. Looking forward to my instructor class on May 6th in Vernon, NJ. Yeah ZUMBA!!!!!

I Zumba 2x at the gym and now 2 at home. I also listen to music a lot louder than I use too and love to watch the kids zumba they make it look easier than the instructors.

Once a job has just begun, leave it not till it is done, be the matter big or small do it right or don't do it at all. Unknown

I take classes 5 times a week. But if I were rich and didn't have to work, I would go to every class at my gym. LOVE IT!!! I also do Zumba at home in my livingroom, either using the kinnect, youtube, or just music alone. I probably do an extra 5 hours a week of Zumba at home.

I found out that my gym does classes as part of my membership so i don't have to pay extra emoticon I've been really struggling with my weight at the minute (stress at uni) but did my first zumba class an hour ago and already feel better.

Should I spread my workouts over the week (1 day - miss a day - 1 day - miss a day) or would i be ok doing it in a block?

Right now 2x per week, but trying to up it to 3, I may have to go to another gym for that though, and its one where you have to call and reserve childcare 24 hours in advance... do they not understand I know NOTHING 24 hours in advance!

Hello! I just started Zumba 3 weeks or so ago. I attend class once a week and then have the DVDs to practice at home, maybe 4-5 times a week. I only work part-time at home, so I have lots of time to dedicate to working out, luckily.

Right now, I go to Zumba once a week due to my schedule but starting tomorrow, I am going to be going twice a week. (YAY!) I'm actually considering getting the DVDs for the days that I can't go this winter and for another workout at least once more during the week.

** Change is like walking an uphill, rocky road: you will stumble, you will fall. You may even roll downhill a bit. You will be tempted to stay down. You'll ask yourself "why bother"? But, if you pick yourself up and just keep pushing forward, eventually you'll get to the top and have a beautiful view! **

I only go once a week, though now that I see how many people are doing 4x a week I feel like a slacker! Unfortunately, my local YWCA only offers it once. I sometimes do it at home a second time during the week.

Your biggest challenge isn’t someone else. It’s the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells, "CAN’T", but you don’t 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 started out in September 1x a week and just wanted to go more often, it was so much fun. I generally go 4-5x a week and now I'm an instructor (since Jan.)so it will be about 5-7 x a week. It's beginning to explode.

I typically teach my Zumba Fitness classes 6 times a week now, and that will be increasing.

When I started in the beginning, it was 3x a week.

They say for weight loss in general, you should do cardio 3-5 times a week, strength training 2-3 times a week, and flexibility training 1-3 times a week, on top of reducing calorie intake.

I quit smoking on March 2nd this year and have gained 7-8 pounds. The weight has been stubborn to lose.

So in order to reach my goals, 1. lose weight, 2. tone or build muscle (knowing that muscle weights more than fat) 3. tighten my tummy muscles, both lower and upper.

I am 55 years old and am able to keep up with the class in spite of smoking for a very long time.

I would really appreciate your opinions, or experiences.
