Tried Zumba DVD

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I got three Zumba DVDs awhile ago but just had the chance to final view them yesterday. I knew quickly that I wasn't going to be able to do the Cardio Party just yet and the Sculpt and Tone looked a bit boring so I decided to do the 20 min Express today. Whew! Early on I thought I had gotten in over my head but I was enjoying it. I wasn't able to fully do all the moves(bouncing and whatnot) but I did manage to keep up and modify as I needed. My pedometer said I got about 1700 steps so that wasn't too bad. Kudos for Sparkpeople because they actually have Zumba as part of their fitness calculator unless Weight Watchers, which I am also tracking online. It is always frustrating to figure out WW activity points and in the midst of all the Point Plus business they still haven't paid enough attention to helping members accurately track fitness.

I definitely worked up a good sweat but I find myself wanting to workout with Zumba again. I plan to get up before work tomorrow to do the 20 minute workout again. I will definitely need to build up to the Cardio party.

    Ninalatina, my sister actually got them for me so I'll have to ask her. The infomericals are on all the time. I think the site is zumbafitness.com. They actually have some new ones now. I am doing the older ones.

    As for the classes, I'm not that brave. EVERYONE says the classes are so much more fun. I've never really been one to take classes. I'm more of loner when it comes to exercise. I don't like going to the gym or walking with someone. It's kind of my time and I set my own tone for how it will be. Maybe I'll change my mind one day emoticon

    Zumba is a BLAST! I go to classes and I have the game for the Xbox Kinect too. If you have classes around you I seriously suggest trying one out. The energy in the room is contagious, like the positive energy here at Spark. I like that you can modify it to where you are, you don't have to do the bounce but you can if you can. You know? I get better each week and it is always so much fun. I am doing 3 classes a week at the gym and I can't glow enough about it. They are serious when they say Ditch the workout, join the party! It is just that...fun. I don't even realize I'm working my booty off!
    Great for you that you are doing it, keep it up! emoticon
