I've recently discovered Zumba, it's fabulous exercise! I was scared to go to the class at first because I was sure it'd be full of Lycra clad beauties with washboard stomachs but no.... It's full of every shape size and age. Some people are great at it, others (me included) have no coordination at all!

It's such a good work out and anyone can do it no matter what your level of fitness is because you can stick with the low impact moves or go for the more taxing high impact variation!

Ha ha I sound like an advert campaign but I love it and I'd urge anyone who's thinking about giving it a try to go along!!! Xxx

No point me paying to do it as just a 3 minute song has me reaching for my sprays (I have moderate to severe emphysema) but there are a few on youtube that I do a couple of times a day.

The classes really do look like fun and I dont think you would really feel like youre working out...youre dancing! Definitely worth considering if you have no health problems, fun and fitness in one...don't get that often!

I'm thinking about getting that one too I'll have a look at the vid and it might help me decide. I love the kinect, it's brilliant.

Ooh i love zumba. Around here there are loads and all drop in so you just pay when you go. Downside is you have to decide to go!

I like the classes because the teachers are always so happy and smiley - must be high on exercise :) Also you can do at lo impact so dont kill yourself

I'm very upset, no more zumba for me for a while because I've torn my calf muscle (not at zumba). It's going to be a good 4-6 weeks before I can even think about getting back to light exercise and even longer before zumba :(
 

*Trying-again*

Plodding on til its gone

Zumba is better than any antidepressant!!! The should give it out on prescription :0) I love zumba x
Just been reading about Zumba. Never heard of it until recently. There is a class just started near me. Might be brave and take the plunge and go this week as think it will do me good.

Especially if like you say its better than any antidepressant which i should be on but cant take.

Trying-again, it's definitely worth going to, I love it. It doesn't matter how co-ordinated you are it's just good fun!! In our class there's all shapes and sizes and you can make it as high impact as you like because they show you the easy move and the hard one so you just go at a level you're comfortable with and still get a great work out.

I'm devastated that I won't be able to go for a few weeks because of my injury, but I guess if I ever want to go again I need to let myself recover properly. Oh and I didn't get hurt at zumba, it was running that did it :(
