Newest Fitness Craze: Zumba

Anyone heard of it or doing it?


I go to Zumba classes 3x a week and let me tell you it is the funnest workout I have ever done. You honestly don't feel like your working out. It's fast paced, fun, and different everytime.


It's like a cross between aerobics and dance (specifically salsa).


What are you ladies' thoughts? Is this something that would motivate you?

One of my friends is doing that at the mo' and she just LOVES it! But it's really not my thing...I tried the whole Yoga Booty Ballet trend with the dancing and that, but I'm just SO not coordinated that I felt rediculous and just wanted it to be over. lol

Oh but it's so much fun!!! There are so many different types of women in the zumba class I go to. Everything from young and fit to young and not so fit to older with 2 left feet...There's women that come that truely have no clue how to dance but still work up a sweat and leave with a smile on their face. :)

DreaminBride...I haven't been good with keeping up on my groups lately. How did Zumba go for you? Did you like it?

I had the days mixed up and it turned out to be a body sculpt class.  :-(  I'm going to my first zumba class tomorrow night.  Will let you know.  I'm really looking forward to it!

Zumba Review...HAD A BLAST!!!


 


I had fun fun fun at this class.  I can feel it in my arms, I can def feel it in my legs, and man oh man my butt will be solid after taking this class some more!


I can see that if you are not a fan of dancing and can't hold a beat, this may not be the class for you.  I went by myself and still had fun.  If you take a friend, I could imagine you both will have a super fun time!


There was some hip hop, squats, lots a sweating, and a wopping amount of latin moves!


J-LO...I'm coming for ya!  I swear I walked out of the gym with a little more of a sway in my hips!


If you like to dance, and especially if you love to dance, you should eally enjoy this class!

Don't get me wrong, if you LOVE to dance, you will LOVE zumba because that's really all it is. I'd rather just burn the same calories by going at the elliptical like a mouse in a wheel  and be done than dance for any period of time. I just get "lost" and forget what I'm supposed to do next and am on my left foot when I'm supposed to be on my right and I hate that. It looks like fun!
