What Is Zumba?


Have you been caught up in the Zumba craze yet? Last year I was looking for a way to shed a few pounds but I didn’t want to work too hard, admittedly I would rather just stay the size I am instead of having to strive to lose weight and be unhappy in the process.

I had a friend who was always talking about Zumba because she is an instructor; I found a class and decided to try it out.

What is Zumba? Zumba is a dance fitness class; it is a mix of dance styles and some workout moves, set to Latin dance music (and some other random music too). It is all very adaptable so even if you have never worked out before you can do this! You work at your own pace and you do the moves in a way that suits you, all while having fun!

This was the first fitness class that I have ever attended and I was really nervous that I wouldn’t be able to keep the beat or follow the moves but when I got there I saw that no one cares what you do or what you look like! It really is all about fun and being together.

(This is one of my favorite songs to dance to, the lyrics always make me thankful for what I have!)

I have been attending my class for almost a whole year; twice a week and I have shed 20lbs! I am in love with this workout and I am so sad when I have to miss a night, how crazy is that? It doesn’t feel like a workout at all. I would say that everyone should check it out once.

Remember that everyone has a first time and no one knows all of the moves the first time or even after attending for a year! Don’t worry about what you look like, enjoy the music and keep moving no matter what!

Thank for stopping by, I am your newest follower. I need to start losing again, I lost a bunch of weight after my first daughter was born and I hope to shed it soon, now that my baby is 8 months old. I have had a gym membership forever and never go.. I will see if they have ZUMBA and try it out... looks like fun. *I was watching this video and my baby was dancing*

I love Zumba! It makes me feel totally energized!

And you're can seem totally intimidating at first when you feel like you'll look stupid, but you have to keep in mind that no one knows anything more than you do and you are all newbies!

Hi! So glad I found you! You said you are in Denver, where do you take this class? Do you have to be a member of the gym? I would LOVE to take a Zumba class for real and I need something like this to see real women and adults, ha. And like you I would love to lose weight without having to be obsessed with it, and I LOVE to dance!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, email me if you have time!! Thanks!!

My tiny university got in on the crazy last year. I was there in January and went to the class with one of my friends. It was love at first sight!

Congrats on the accomplishment! Not only the weight loss but the one year commitment! That is really something to be proud of!
