So Much Fun You Forget Your "Exercising"

104

This Sparked Me!

My favorite workout of all time is ZUMBA! I have so much fun doing it I forget that I am working out. I find myself wanting to do more after my workout is over. I Zumba in the privacy of my own home with Zumba Fitness for the Wii. It is also available on several other game platforms. Trust me, it's a ton of fun!

    I love Zumba!! Because I have so much fun exercising with Zumba, I have stuck with it and dropped almost 30 lb this year! I have Zumba for the Wii but prefer to go to classes.

    Zumba is def the most fun I've ever had while working out! It'll not only have you burning calories but by the end of your work out you just feel so energized! Everytime I Zumba it makes me smile and I can't say that for too many other exercises!:) I Love Zumba!!!

    Goalamoto, if your computer has the ability to play dvds, you can do it that way - there are Zumba dvds available.

    I like Zumba - have previously used a couple of my Zumba DVDs but yesterday went to my first Aqua Zumba class and loved it! The classes are usually only $5 or $6 a class here if you don't have a gym membership.

    Zumba is a blast!!!!!!! Love it!

    It takes a lot of energy for Zumba but if you can get up there and move its great fun I agree.

    I know, right??? A place previously ran 3 classes a week, & I went to them all, made friends & had a BALL! Plus burned calories/lost weight like CRAZY! And....like you said, while having fun!!! emoticon
MISSYV_1501 3/24/2011 1:10:00 PM

    I agree!! I went twice this week to a zumba class and it doesn't feel like excercise. It is a lot of fun. Especially when you go with a friend.
