    So excited, I can't wait to bust a move and burn some calories.

    I am a worrier though, I am going to a class in a community center. Where do you put your belongings? At the side of the room? What does everyone wear? Joggers and a tshirt? I think I will wear leggings and a baggy vest. Footwear? I have normal trainers or tennis shoes.

    Oh I am buzzinggg!

    Will tell you all about it when I return.

    Hi Zumba is fantastic and it’s not strenuous... Its lots of fun – its all about dancing, getting those hips moving. It’s a full body workout. I have been doing Zumba for a couple of months and totally love it.

    To be honest its addictive – once you start you cant stop…

    I’ve downloaded some of the tracks onto my iphone, so when at home alone I pop the phone and zumba away… obviously nothing beats a proper class…

    Wear something comfy n loose - you'll be doing some funky dance moves.

    Water - definitely!!

    Belongings are strewn around the side of the room, and people just wear all sorts of things, tracksuit bottoms, lycra bottoms, t-shirts, vest. A whole host of items, and no-one looks out of place - apart from one girl who turned up in her Ugg boots one evening!! Just wear what your comfortable in, no-one will be looking at you, they'll be watching your leader!

    Enjoy your class - you'll love it!!

    low tread trainers are a must to get the moves right. my running trainers stick to the floor a bit so i'm looking at dance shoes but i roll inwards so i need to do some more reading.

    i wear leggings type gym bottoms and a gym or now a zumba top. i drink 1lt of water so take loads.

    our classes are very high energy, jumping, bouncing, wiggling etc etc i work up a sweat. it's as energetic as you make it and i make it very strenuous. was focused on big movements today, large arms, moves across the room etc etc pulling in my abs and i can feel it. mind it was after a 5 mile run so i think the run has had some effects to my aching abs.

    A sports bra is best, I forgot to switch from regular bra for my class today and I felt I was jiggling about too much.
