    Hi, I was thinking of buying the Zumba CD's and wondered if anybody has them or has been doing the classes. It is supposed to be great for losing weight?

    Anybody know if its any good?

    Thanks

    I bought the dvds which are great fun.

    This week I'm taking my lap top and the discs to class to play during WI. After trying to explain to everyone last week what I was on about we decided it would be easier if I showed them.

    Would be good if I could get the whole class up to have a go. :)

    Its a new type of fitness class but more like latin american dancing, its taken the states by storm apparentely and now its here. It does look like great fun.

    Thanks for that. Do you have to be superfit to do it, I am far from that right now but I thought it might help me get started losing weight and getting fit at the same time? The whole set is £50 a bit pricey but if it will help me lose Im willing to pay it. Is it worth it?

    I have the dvd's also and love it.

    They are different levels in the set. So you can start off on the basics one and work your way through. The basic one breaks the steps down from slow to fast. They are suitable for all ages and fitness level etc.

    I bought the DVDs and tried the 1st one (where they break down the steps) - found it quite tricky, but I guess it gets easier the more you do it!!

    My problem is my hips - they just won't move as they are supposed to for Zumba!!! I'm lucky I live on my own!!!!

    I love dancing so it would not be like a workout at all and I adore Latin American music...........bring it on !!!!

    It looks like something I could do at home. I am so glad you started this thread I could have lived in ignorance of zumba forever lol.
