    As long as you get a good class its lots of fun. Have been to a couple one wasn't very lively or fun and the other was fantastic(so went to that one when i could lol). In general though zumba is pretty good and i hope you have a good time at the class tonight

    Hiya,

    I've been Zumba-ing for over 3 months now and I love it! I'm a non-gymmer too, or so I thought, I've found as I get fitter I enjoy other kinds of exercise too.

    You will have a great time, enjoy it xxxxx

    Great fun! Prepare to sweat A LOT and make sure you take a big bottle of water/liquid with you as it's very thirsty work. You definitely know it's a workout but you will have a good time :)

    Zumba is great so long as you remember not to care what others think of how you look!!! Throw yourself into it and have fun! Really exaggerate each movement, you burn more calories and have more fun that way :D

    Definitely NOT!!!

    I am totally unfit (well I was!) and there are all shapes and sizes at my class, and all ages!

    There is always the option to sit out a song if you need to, and you can do as much or as little as you like, just enjoy! xxxx

    I love Zumba, I'm by no means fit at all! But, at my gym, they tell you to do what you can, and if there's anything you can't do, just keep moving to the music and have fun!

    Definitely agree on the take a drink with you bit!
