My initial thoughts on the dvd's:

 

Unless you are completely clueless when it comes to dancing, the Beginners dvd is useless. lol It spends a lot of time, breaking down the dance moves, then repeating them...then just when you start to get even just a tiny bit warm, they move on to slowly breaking down the next. No thanks, I'll be putting that one away and not getting it back out.

 

The Abs, Buns & Glutes dvd....decent, but not much different than almost ANY exercise video you would find. There were..maybe 2 moves in there I was not familiar with, and I'm no exercise officienado--by any stretch of the imagination. It does give you a nice average burn, but again..no different than any floor workout. To be honest, I MUCH prefer my Bender Ball and it's dvd for ab work. That thing is freakin' fabulous. I think this one lasts about 20-30 min, I honestly lost track.

 

I'm moving on to the Advanced Workout, which if I had even thought of starting there the other day, I'd have probably had my head checked. I just can't see it being all that difficult in terms of DOING it, but it will probably be hard getting THROUGH it because of all the cardio I expect to be on there. I have no stamina yet, but I'm already strong enough to deal with the first too way too easily to stick with them for even a week.

 

So..there ya have it. I'll report back in another few days.

I go to Zumba 3 nights a week at the gym I go to. It is such a fun way to lose weight and learn new dance moves. The first class is a little tricky but the instructors make it such a comfortable fun enviroment. If you dont know the moves just keep moving thats all they tell you. You eventually lear. Besides most of the moves are very simple.

Savannah, any update on the advanced dvd yet? My Fi mentioned this to me literally 2 hours ago (we are way behind you guys over here!) He had seen it whilst flicking through the cable channels and thinks it looks like my "thing". From the feedback on here it seems that those that most girls that do a class really love it, I'd like to hear your feedback from your latest attempt.

I'm dying to try zumba but my gym only offers it on fridays at 8:30 am (i'm at work), fridays at 4:45pm (still at work) or tuesdays at 10:30 am (work work work)...

 

why don't gyms offer classes at times that people who work can go?? (at least one of them, not saying all 3 have to be after 6pm or before 7am but one, please?)
