Hi!!!
I am new to Zumba, not to spark... I have just discovered doing Zumba in my home thru utube and I have to say.. I LOVE IT!!!!! :) I am not coordinated and out of shape but I am a diabetic and need to lose the weight/exercise. Honestly, I hate exercise most times but I have had so much fun doing this that it makes me WANT to get up and do the exercise. I havent got brave enough to sign up for a class yet because I feel like I look crazy doing it right now, but I found out a class goes on on Mondays right by my house. I may run out of excuses for going to the class.. :) Super excited to be here and could use tips and encouragement from all you novices out there! emoticon

Taking this journey one day at a time.

Hello,
This is Chari and I am new to this Team :) I just loooove dancing, I am latin so you can easily figure that out ;) but since living in US (7 years) I piled up so many pounds that I don't recognize myself anymore. I forgot what it feels to be a size 1 and not have a belly :(
I Need Help! and I figure maybe I will try Zumba since I enjoy dancing so much ;) or at least i used to. Please Charlie, you seem so motivated, guide me through the Weight Loss Journey I want to dig in :( Please?

I will try to build up a 7 day program.
Wish me good luck!

I just signed up for my first Zumba class! I'm excited for joining a group class, but I'm a bit nervous. I watched different Zumba clips online and they all seem so different. Some more challenging then others, so I'm just hoping the one I signed up for is not for advanced students....

Hi everyone...
I have been doing Zumba once a week for about six weeks as part of a cross training program. I love it and have recently considered taking one of the 'basic' training classes. I think the bonus from Zumba is not just that it is a fun fitness challenge, but you also get more confident with your dance moves as well!

Hope your load gets lighter!

Hey, I'm Tangee and I just started Zumba last week. I went to my first class Thursday night and even though I am not very coordinated- I had a lot of fun! I giggled..a lot...and I do NOT giggle. I didn't even realize the hour had gone by. I'll be starting my Monday night classes next week, so I'll be going twice a week. I'm pretty excited about it, since I really enjoy dancing and group classes. I just wish I could find some good instructional videos of the basic steps so I can practice before next class.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.

SARALOBRO, how long have you been going to your Zumba class? I'm interested because I just started and I want to know when I can expect to see a difference, too.
Also, how many class do you take a week?

Keep up the good work and so will I and we will get there together!

Hugs,
Charlie

My class is taught be Melissa. Melissa is a certified aerobics instructor. She choreographs the class to include alot of different muscle movements. It's low impact but we do alot of hip and ab movements. I am begining to see the difference in my waist and hips.

Hi everyone. My name is Sara. I take zumba at the recreation center in Taylor, Michigan. I have had great results with zumba and will continue to do it. It is fun and challenging. I know my stomach and abs have been shaping really well. I believe this is because of zumba.
