Hello,

I started Zumba classes Sept. 27 at 161 lbs. I'm now 148 lbs, but I don't seem to be burning the calories other people here are. Maybe it's my age difference being older. I go to classes twice a week and do the DVDs at home 4 days a week, so I get in 6 sessions a week. But I'm only averaging 333-400 calories per session. emoticon

Hi Everyone! My name is Sarah, I'm 26 years old and have one child. I've recently discovered my love for Zumba. I actually just bought the Zumba Wii game and have a blast with it, the time passes by so quickly. I am getting the DVDs for Christmas. I felt extremely uncoordinated at first with it but after a few times I feel like I'm getting the hang of it.

Hi! I'm new to the Zumba Lovers Team but not to SP or Zumba. I have been going to Zumba classes at our local Y since June and I absolutely LOVE it. If I could find classes that I could make it to every day of the week I would! My instructor at the Y is awesome and I just started going to another instructor on the weekends as well (she is a friend of the instructor at the Y). Zumba is so much fun that the hour just flies by and the calorie burn is ridiculous! I recently got a heart rate monitor for my birthday and I burn from 768 to 1000 calories in an hour class.

Hey Ya'll, I've been dancing in Zumba classes since August 09 - I've lost 20 lbs! This is the first exercise class that I LOVE!! I was in drill team in high school and have always loved to dance. I found an awesome instructor at the Wichita Falls Family YMCA and also built a playlist on projectplaylist.com so I can dance at home.

Hello...I'm Sarah and I'm new to Zumba...I did 2 free zumba videos from YouTube today and I loved it...so decided to join this team.
I commute long distances and work late so I haven't been physically active and I don't watch my diet much :( Zumba is my first step at getting healthy..I would like to do zumba at home cos I don't have time to gym.

Looking forward to being here and doing more zumba!

Carpe Diem!!

Hi, I'm Hillary and planning on getting Zumba. I live on a 3rd story apartment so its hard to exercise without getting the downstairs neighbor mad at me. I'm moving into our house (that we're still in the contract phase of) mid January and hoping to lose weight with Zumba.

Good afternoon Zumba Lovers! Although I am not new to SP, I just started doing Zumba about 3 weeks ago when my mother ordered the dvd's for me. I love doing the videos at home, but I've also found a wonderful Zumba instructor at the Y close to my job. Please continue to support me and each other as we continue down this epic road towards healthy living!

Hi everyone,I am new to SP.
My name is Mary I am 35 and I live in Northern Ca,and have all my life basicly.
I have 4 boys who live with me and 2 boys who dont. I had 5 c-sections with them so I have been trying to find a way to "tone" up my stomach area.
I am a stay at home mom since one of my boys has a few handicaps and I have been seperated for awhile now.
I have been doin Zumba since Aug this year but just recently started going more often. I try to go at least 3 times a week but usually make it at least 4 times. I wish I could go more but kids dont always allow it.
I look forward to meeting people on here.

Hi everyone!

New to the team and to Zumba.

I'd been wanting to try it when I joined my gym last year and read about what Zumba was. Unfortunately, I live half an hour from my gym (it's near where I work) and usually carpool with my roommate.

Since she and her husband had their baby last week, though, I decided it was high time to start. So I went to the class Monday after work. It was so much fun that I went to the one on Thursday, too! It's what I've always wanted in an exercise class... dance and fun without it seeming like "exercise"

I certainly don't dance well yet - I definitely look like a drunken, three-legged donkey trying to dance - but I'm looking forward to picking up steps and following along a little better. I love that it pushes my stamina and that there's so much growth to it as I learn.

Definitely well on my way to Zumba Addiction ;0)

Took a Zumba class last night! AWESOME fun! I was sweating like I never sweat before! Calves hurt so I am going to practice my steps before the next class.

There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you are committed to something you accept no excuses, only results.

It seems to me that I move more and have more fun doing it at ZUMBA, even with the low impact version. It sure beats sitting still and doing nothing!

Hi, I started Zumba in early sept. Couldn't keep up my feet have a mind of their own but I love it. In early oct. I fell and I have a fractured kneecap. I missed three weeks completly and now I go and do the hips and arms. I try not to bounce, squat or do anything stupid, so far so good. I figure its a lot more than I was doing at home and I love the energy.
I live in south texas
married, 3 children
My grandson who I raise is Autistic so that in itself is a full time endever
I love sweets, breads, salty and crunchy foods. I don't have one favorite, but I am trying to focus on healthy foods.

Hi, I'm not sure I'm doing this right. I am a zumba addict! I take 4-6 classes per week and I love every minute. I am not sure how to log my zumba minutes, although I figure it is close to high impact aerobics. The instructors all wear body buggs and they average about 600 kcal/hr long class.

I love zumba so much that I want to take the instructor class and teach, but I am not a great dancer. Zumba has definitely made me feel better about my dancing skills though, and I am so proud of myself for getting so into it!

Hello Fellow Zumba Fanatics!

I'm new to SP and I have been doing Zumba on and off for about 2.5 years now. I'm thinking about taking the Instructor Certification on December 5th but terrified that I will look like a big goof compared to all of the people who have been dancing for years.

Starting out, just move with the music and eventually you'll pick up the steps. I kept reminding myself I was moving more than if I stayed at home. Part of the fun of zumba is becoming agile enough to do the steps.
Enjoy and don't get discouraged. emoticon
