    Hi,

    I am following SW plan and have decided to take up Zumba as a way to compliment it. I have been so lucky as to get the last place in a class close to home tonight. I am soo nervous though as I have no co-ordination and no rhythm so it should be interesting!

    I have dug out all of my sports clothes and sports bra out but don't know what shoes to wear, I have some trainers with quite a thick sole, some split sole air max trainers and some converse all stars. Would somebody be able to recommend which ones would be best?

    Thank you in advance!

    Enjoy your class tonight hun! I had my first one last night and everyone was so nervous before they started, after the first couple of mins though we were all having a blast and there were huge smiles on everyones faces!!! As for footwear I only own one pair of trainers so didn't have a choice! My trainers are Nike ones with quite a thick sole but I think you will be best just wearing whichever you find the comfiest! There were people last night in balerina pumps so I suppose its whatever you find best for you! Have fun! xxx

    Well I am back and I thoroughly enjoyed it!! I even managed to keep up with about 90% of the moves although I need to perfect the salsa type ones!! I went on my own and got there at 6.45 and by 7pm the room was full, they locked the doors and we started 15 mins early. It was such good fun but such hard work! I am so unfit it's unreal, it is about 4 years since I have done any "controlled" exercise!

    I am looking at buying the Zumba game for the Wii too although Hubby has the PS3 move and they are bringing one out for that, I don't know which will be best so I may go & read up some reviews!

    So I am a convert, I loved it!!
