Zumba is awesome

Has everyone here tried Zumba yet? I was never a fan of exercise. I decided I would try a Zumba class about a year ago. It was a beginner class and I barely made it through the hour. I loved it though. I now am taking Zumba Cardio classes and I love them. We are burning up to 1,000 calories an hour! How is that for a cardio workout? I have to say that I was a bit scared to take my first class. I am so clumsy and it is a dance/exercise class. You don't have to be graceful.

I have never tried it but it looks like fun. And 1000 calories an hour is amazing!

I enjoy Zumba class but we don't burn anywhere close to 1000 calories per hour. I think the chart says it's around 300 calories, but obviously that will vary from person to person.

I have taken the classes with two different instructors. I have loved them both! The first one was my cousin. She started us with the beginner class. We then switched to Zumba toning, Aqua Zumba and Zumba Cardio. I loved each one of them. I was never bored! I think the key to not getting bored is to keep learning new songs.

I now take the class with another instructor. She majored in dance in college and she teaches it a lot different. I absolutely love it. She is constantly changing it up.
