Hi my name is Amy and I am new to this team, I love zumba. I tried it about couple months ago when they brought it out of the gym and in to the community for a cheaper price. Fell behind in my exercise routine but I am back at it, including zumba.

Hi! I started Zumba about 3 months ago.
I love it! It is by far the best workout I've ever tried.

Hello, all! I'm new to Zumba and to this team! Friends of mine have been begging me to try Zumba with them for quite a while, but I'm not super coordinated, so I always passed. Wow! I can't believe what I've been missing! Not only is it a great workout, but FUN! I'm definitely keeping it in my schedule!

I have a question for those of you who track your workouts with SparkPeople. How do you count Zumba? Do you just call it "circut training" or something?

Looking forward to being a part of this group!

Hi all. I'm new to the team and semi new to Zumba. My sister recently became a Zumba instructor and since then I've been a Zumba machine. I've been doing every class I can make it to and sometimes my sister lets me come practice with her so it's like private Zumba lessons! So much fun! I can't get enough! (OK, not strictly true, last night I did 90 minutes with an uber tough instructor...that was enough...I may be able to walk normally again tomorrow, Lol) Really looking forward to another class on Saturday. Loving the Zumba and seeing some very nice results.

I'm new to the team. I haven't tried Zumba yet but I'm excited to start it. I'm joining a class at my local Y and I'm planning on getting it for my Wii. I love to dance. When I was dancing a lot I was at my goal weight. I had to stop due to conflicting work schedules but now that I'm not working I figure its time to do what I love!

Excited to be here and rocking out to Zumba with you all! I've had the DVD'S for a few months and just started to commit myself to the craze! I attended live classes in culinary school and have enjoyed Zumba ever since

I thought I posted in this topic before, but I guess I am wrong. I LOVE LOVE LOVE emoticon Zumba. I have been doing it for about 2 weeks now and there are days when I do it 2x.

If I can see it, then I can achieve it.

Hello my name is Valerie and I am a Zumba Lover! lol No really I love Zumba, I own dvd's and attend classes as much as possible. On Saturday I started a 10 day fat loss Zumba program that came with my dvd's and I am loving it. I have not found any other workout that is as much fun or as intense. I don't know where I would be with out it.

Hey everyone. New to Zumba and the group. Attended my first class last night and left dripping sweat. I was skeptical but pleasantly surprised at how taxing the workout was. Adding to my workout rotation for sure.

I'm new to this team, but have been doing Zumba for two months now. Late last week, I signed up for a membership at the local Zumba studio. I'm not a big fan of aerobic classes, but I am becoming a Zumba addict. Yay! Nice to meet y'all!

I have been going to zumba for 3 months and I am totally hooked. I finally found an exercise that I truly enjoy. My instructor is awesome and makes it that much more fun. Instructors really do have a huge impact on class energy. This is an exercise that I know I will continue to do years from now. Zumba is an awesome workout and a ton of fun!!! Love to ZUMBA!

Hi ya'll,

I am totally new to Zumba. I tried a few minutes on "The Talk" yesterday and it looks like my kind of workout. I enjoy my old dance videos that I have.

I hope to find a dvd to work out with. I am sure I can find one online.

Hi! I am not new to Zumba, but new to SP and the Zumba team. I have been doing Zumba for about a year now. I am OBSESSED! It is so much fun, and your workout time flies. One thing to be sure of though, you need to find a teacher that "fits" you. I have the BEST (for me) Zumba instructor. If you try a class and don't click with the teacher, try another class. So many instructors are different and every one is not for everyone!

Good luck to all on your journey to health, fitness, and most importantly, happiness.

Hello all!

I've been doing Zumba for about 3 months now and it's an addiction! I take class at least 3 times a week and try to work one or two songs into my at home workouts on the days when there's no class at the Y.

I love it! And I'm glad it's out there. It's the best fitness class I've ever taken!

Hi all! I tried a friend's Zumba Dvd a few months ago, and thought it was fun, but I was super self concious, then I joined a zumba class that the community ed was putting on and fell in love! Now the class is getting a little pricey for me, so I decided to get the wii version, it has pretty good reviews, plus my daughter loves it when I find ways to workout at home instead of having to go somewhere.

I have the DVDs and they are good. I don't have the Wii version. There is a discussion going on it. You should check it out. Sounds like there are more options with that.

I've never tried the DVDs. I love the classes. Each teacher has their own style. If it were the same every time, I'd probably get bored after awhile, even if there were different DVDs. Classes are always exciting, and there is energy from everyone playing off each other's energy!

Hi, Leeann here in Kentucky. I am coming up on my 2nd anniversary as a Zumba instructor. It is a great way to have fun exercising. It actually doesn't even feel like exercise!

I have enjoyed it so much that I am constantly dancing through the house and in my van! My family laughs at me.

Hi, I am Sally from Cape Breton NS Canada. I am very interested in doing Zumba. I might even try the Aqua Zumba. Trying to find a copy of the DVD's to try at home first. They are not easy to find around here, but I will keep on trying. Then I might try the Zumba wii. I am married and have 3 boys & 3 granddaughters. Best wishes to all of you !!!
