If I Can Zumba Anybody Can!

By 

from Virginia

Comments about Zumba:

My sister invited me to an exercise class that she was taking 3 days a week that involved dancing and cardio. I had noticed that she had lost weight so I was up to the challenge. Zumba was the name of the exercise class and from the first time I tried it I have been hooked. I didn't have the time to make the class on the days they had it so I bought the Zumba DVD to exercise at home. The video is very easy to follow and I felt like I was in control of how I learned the moves because I could pause the video, rewind it, to suit learning the dance moves. This video has the best upbeat music and the dancers are easy to follow. I will admit I am just a beginner and can't do half the dances the dancers are doing but it doesn't matter! I am having fun and exercising at the same time but it doesn't feel like I'm working out. I literally am in a sweat after 20 minutes of following the moves. I've tried working out at a gym, Curves, yoga, but Zumba has been the only style of exercise that I have stuck with. I am one that doesn't follow a strict diet, but once I started taking Zumba I found myself motivated to take better care of myself. The first week I followed the video 4 days out of the week and by the 4th lesson I was sore all over from the great dance moves that exerted my body. Now that I've finally stuck with this program I've shed 10 pounds and feel better physically and mentally. The awesome thing about doing this at home is nobody is watching you and you can try as hard as you can without feeling like you look silly. When I took the class with my sister I barely kept up with the girl teaching and often felt silly because I couldn't do the dances but now that I'm able to use this DVD I am way more comfortable working out in my home. No matter how large or small you are, I'm sure you can move around to dance, I think this DVD is meant for all walks of life!

I love Zumba. It is the best way to loose weight.

Comments about Zumba:

For the last several years I have taken zumba classes at the fitness center close to my house. After my third baby was born it was harder for me to get out of the house to get to my zumba classes so I decided to purchase the dvd to get into shape. I loved it. Doing zumba in the privacy of my home was so much better. I can be silly and have fun with it without others looking at me like I am crazy. My kids also enjoy doing zumba with me. I am very happy with the dvd and will be buying more very soon.

Zumba is an aerobic dance party focusing on latin dance.

Comments about Zumba:

I absolutely LOVE Zumba; it's amazing for people like me that dislike the gym, but still want an exciting workout. It's so fun, my children enjoy participating as well, which is good, since my 11-year-old is trying to become more healthier in his activity level.

Great DVD for beginner fitness levels

By

Comments about Zumba:

What are you waiting for? Get off the couch and get moving! Terrific DVD for someone who is starting exercise. I especially liked the Step By Step DVD to break down individual dance moves like the Calypso, Salsa, etc. The music is good and the cuing is exceptional in this particular DVD. The other Exhilarate DVD seemed a bit dated. The cuing was voiced over and the dancers were wearing street clothes, which I don't find to be motivating. Overall, I would recommend it for anyone but don't expect to really get your sweat on.

Zumba workouts are tons of fun

By 

from Annapolis, MD

Comments about Zumba:

My mom bought me a Zumba DVD a few years back and I've only just started using it recently. I have NO idea what took me so long as I really enjoy it.

I am very coordinated but when I watched the people in the infomercial I had serious doubts about my ability to learn the steps and truly enjoy myself. However I watched the basics DVD, and found that they broke each step down into 3-4 smaller steps and I was able to learn them quickly.

Zumba is a really good workout and lots of fun. The only caveat is that you cannot wear a regular fitness shoe when doing Zumba. Many of the moves involve twisting the ankles, knees, and hips so a shoe with a slightly more slippery sole (like a dance shoe) is much better. When I first started Zumba I wore running shoes and they were far too sticky on the bottom to do the moves well and safely.

I <3 ZUMBA!!

By 

from Grabill, IN

Comments about Zumba:

Zumba is a latin dance work out DVD package that has five different DVD's to pick from. It has a basic video that you start with that teaches you all the Latin moves you need to know for the videos. It has an abs work out vid, twenty min work out vid, cardio party, Zumba live, and sculpt and tone video. The videos also come with toning sticks. My best friend and I do Zumba at least three times a week and it is so fun! I have tried everything from the gym and pilates and Zumba is by far the best. I have actually stuck to this program and it is best of all, it is so much fun! You don't even feel like you are working out. The time goes by soo fast. I would recommend this to anyone, but specifically women. If it is hard for you to make yourself work out, try Zumba. There are also Zumba classes around, but I love the videos because I can work out in the privacy of my own home with my best friend. We aren't the most coordinated people in the world, but we're improving!

Join the party

Comments about Zumba:

I really like zumba fitness because help me loss weight but is not boring actually  I have really fun. Zumba it isthe idea to do execise but you do not feel like that .Aerobics never really disappeared. It simply took a long vacation, picked up some sexy Latin dance moves and returned as Zumba.Though Zumba is primarily a cardiovascular workout because it exercises the heart and lungs, it also strengthens and tones the abdominal muscles, gluteal muscles, arms and legs through crunches, lunges, arm curls and squats, Trantham said. All the movements are done while standing, and the choreography works both the left and right halves of the body.So what can someone who has never been to a class expect at their first session? "To smile the entire time "To experience music from Latin America and all over the world including salsa, merengue, belly dancing, reggaeton, hip-hop, cumbia and even flamenco. To forget that you are working out and feel like you are at a nightclub in South Beach."Participants can burn from 500 to 800 calories during an hour workout.  In other words ZUMBA itis amazing. IF  you want to know more about zumba let me  know.

LOVE IT!

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about Zumba:

I have the Wii game of it and Have been to soo many classes of it. I enjoy every minute of it. It doesn't feel like im working out and thats what I like about it. It makes me sweat and feel like I have done something good for my body. I love how it has made my body look since I have started doing it. I miss my Zumba partner though. SHe got me hooked on it and then had to leave. But I am soo glad she did! If its a game or DVD or you going to classes with other people. It's an awesome work out that you enjoy. If you enjoy dancing you will enjoy this. IT may takes some getting use to but once you do oh boy its fun. I still don't have all the moves down yet and I have been doing it for 4 months. so Don't feel bad if it takes some getting use to. I love watching my kids work out with me on it. They think it is great and they are having fun in the mean time. you can turn it into a family time or just you by yourself time. Try it out and see what you think and feel about it.
