The Communiversity program through UC has a really good Zumba instructor and is dirt cheap. It costs more to park. I've heard some good things about Dare to Dance in Blue Ash, which isn't far from Kenwood. I've not been there but you can buy a pass and attend classes almost daily.

I cannot make myself be thin today, but I CAN be healthier by making a few smart choices. I focus on what needs to be done today and tomorrow takes care of itself.

I absolutely *heart* zumba, I already was going thru all the urban active schedules and saw they have a few classes at the Urban Active in Kenwood, I know every instructor is different and am hoping that I'm going to love my 'new/upcoming' ones as much as the ones I'm leaving behind when I move (I will seriously miss some of their routines!) If anyone has been to those UA classes please feel free to share your experience with them!

Got a sitter last night to go to Zumba for the first time with my sister and friend and the stupid place had cancled without putting it on their website!!! I was so so so so so so so bummed out! Still went to veterans park and got my sister to do 2 miles with me instead... better than nothing but not as good as zumba.

Its not just about weight, its about setting goals!

If you go to Zumba.com, put in your zip code, the mile radius you want them to check, and the days of the week, they will give you a list of people and places giving zumba classes. I go to one on thursday nights from 6-7 @ fairfax recreation center. Danelle Jacoby is the instructor, and I think she is FABULOUS! It costs $6/class, pay as you go.

First Thursday works for me - turns out this Thursday I'm spending the day with my niece (my sister had spring break where she teaches last week, but her daughter is off this week so guess who's getting in some serious auntie time!), so I have NO idea how or when any gym time will fit into the day!

ACMALY - Dare to Dance is the place my friend Laura goes to! She says it's totally awesome.

Communiversity has a Zumba class and the instructor is fabulous. If it weren't on UCs campus and hard for me to get to after work I'd go more often. I'm hoping it eventually gets moved to the off-site location.

so i gave in and joined a gym... LA fitness has all their classes included in their membership. they have a zumba class... they call it latin heat. but after pricing out other zumba classes... the going rate per class was 5-10 bucks.( and i would like to do it 3x a week 15-30bucks a week) so instead i joined LA fitness and for 39.99 a month, and i get their gym, pool and any classes I want. i started doing their spinnin class and i love it!!

let me know if any of you are members of the haperspoint LA fitness, and if you take any of thier classes... i mostly do evenins, but i would like to make friends while in classes!!!!! (45249) plus a fitness buddy is always a plus.

If you are by the northeast side of Cincinnati, (Blue Ash area) check out Dare to Dance. They have awesome Zumba classes, Monday through Saturday at 10am, Monday and Wednesday at 5:30pm, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 4:3pm, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30pm and Wednesday at 8:30pm. They also have Zumba Boot Camp at 9 am on Saturday and Zumba noon on Sunday and Zumba Toning at 2pm on Sunday.

They also have yoga and yoga-pilates classes that are great as well. I found this place through Groupon and ended up getting a fitness pass. I have been really happy with the variety of class offerings.

Seriously? That's the one I go to (I can't make it on Tuesdays because of those pesky 12 hour shifts)!!!!! Let me know if you're going to be there - I usually wear one of my sparkpeople t-shirts to Zumba so I shouldn't be hard to find.

I know there's a Zumba class in Blue Ash that one of my old high school friends attends (did I mention I graduated from Sycamore? ;)) - I'll poke her on facebook to find out where she goes if you'd like. :)

I go to the classes at Mercy Healthplex Western Hills, but there's only one night class on Thursdays - the others are on Tuesday and Thursday morning at 9am. I think the Fairfield and Anderson locations also offer Zumba at different times....

Anderson location: *evening* Zumba on Wednesday from 5:15 PM to 6:15 PM
Zumba Tone on Thursday night from 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
They've also got one Saturday Zumba class at 10:50 AM

Fairfield location: *evening* Zumba on Wednesday from 6-7pm
They also have an evening Zumba Gold class on Thursday from 6-7pm
Fairfield also has line dancing classes, Thursday night after Zumba Gold (at 7pm) and on Saturdays at 10am.

I love Zumba too! I don't know how far of a drive this might be for you all, but I go to a Zumba class on Monday and Wednesday nights in Aurora. It is at the Aurora Baptist Church at 6:30. Great teacher and very fun!

hey mewi... looks like you and i need to work out together... I LOVE LOVE LOVE zumba. i started doing it here in england while i have been visiting There is actually a zumba website, and you can type in ur zipcode and it gives you all the locations, time and dates of places within like 25 miles of ur zip. I'm looking to do zumba on a mon night, or wed night, or fri or sat night.. or sometime on sundays... i work alot of sats too. ( i only want to do it 1-2 times a week tho)

we should meet up and do a class together.. i find it easier to do a class if you know someone it it.

I'm going to be running with the fleet feet on tue and thurs, and try to run some 5ks on sundays.. and I work till about 7pm during the week.. so I have to do zumba in the evenings.

just go to google and type in zumba in cincinnati, and it should come up with the official site.
I would like to become a instructor some day!!

-D

i plan on
