Zumba

Recommended Posts

Ok...I know this is an old thread, but I didn't want to start a new one unnecessarily!!

 

Anyway whoever is considering Zumba class all I have to say to you is DO IT!!! I just got back from my first class & all I can say is WOW!!! After the first 5 mins I was sweating like crazy!!! But it was soooo much fun! My first thought after leaving was to call my mom (my BF!) and tell her all about it. Then my second thought was to get online as soon as possible & tell all my BDW girls about this amazing, fun way to exercise!!!

I can't comment on how much you lose as I've just started, but from being in one class I can say that you must lose a bunch with all that booty shaking!! And no, you don't have to be a Shakira or Beyonce to join this class...most everyone is just like you...absolutely clueless!!! smile120.gif But the main thing is have fun & just fake it & shake it!! I can't wait until Monday night class again...and I just got back from this one!! Luckily they offer a Thursday evening class, so I might have to go twice a week a few times!!!cheer2.gif

So funny. The nanny that replaced me when I moved is an instructor and was telling me about this. I did a little research but I have no rhythm at all. I like my calm yoga. haha. Maybe if I had the dvd and could do it at home.

One of my coworkers was just asking me a couple weeks ago if I had ever heard of this. They offer a class here I think a couple days a week and we are going to take. I'm trying to lose about 20 pounds this sounds like it would be perfect for me!

I have a .....I am a Zumba addict. I can't help it. I have been doing it for about 6 months now, and lucky for me the gym I go to has now increased classes to 3 times a week.....yey! I was hitting a plateau with my wt loss but this really jumpstarted it. I highly recommmend it, if you love to dance then it's a bonus....cardio workout and shaking your booty!!!bunny_4.gif

I have been wanting to take this but the times my gym offers it does not work for me sounds like I will have to move some things around to give it a try.

I love Zumba! It totally gets you in the mood to party in the Carribean!! If anyone is worried about how they dance this is the class for you. it teaches you teh merengue, cha cha ... and more. Even beginners can master this easily and look good while doing it!

Thought I'd resurrect this thread to see if anyone is still doing classes or the dvd's?

 

I just got the dvd's today and will start tomorrow. The only classes in my area don't work with our schedule, so I thought I'd try the dvd's out and see how I felt. Now that I'm two weeks post-op, I can start doing some moderate exercising. I really want to start now since my goal is to tone up and firm and I'd like time to do that without feeling the pressure. I've got a ways to go considering I was restricted from any kind of cardio this past two years due to my health (heart palpitations associated with hyperthyroidism).

 

Now, my metabolism comes from one little pill each day and I want to do all I can to support it. I liked circuit training, but with four toddlers going to the gym isn't all that convenient either. I love to get my groove on and dance though, so I figured what better than learning something new?!

 

Anyway, anyone tried 'em and liked 'em? Classes?

 

Oh, for anyone interested in the dvd's, I got the full set, brand new still in the shrink wrapped box set for $25 w. free shipping via an Ebay store. I'd be happy to share the info with anyone interested! (so sayeth the Ebay queen o'cheap lol) There are 4 dvd's in the set, starting with Beginners, then Abs, Thighs and Buns (or something like that), Advanced then Power.

 

I'll update in a few days and give my thoughts! I'm going to shoot for doing the workout at least 3 days a week.

OMG Savannah you're going to LOVE IT!!!

TBH I've been slacking off on my Zumba classes since we got back from the wedding (I actually only went once!). I still have 9 classes left that I've already paid for - I guess the motivation (ie, having a beach ready body!) is just not there right now!! Let me know how you like the DVDs - I thought about getting them too so I wouldn't have to go to the classes ($70 for 10), but I do kind of like getting out of the house - and the classes are fun. Can you send me the link that you got them from? I still might look into it!

 

Good Luck & have fun!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
