I actually mainly do the live class but doing mainly just Zumba and giving up soda has caused me to lose 12 pounds since the middle of January :). I love it!

Zumba just makes me smile. It doesn't feel like exercise.

I have the Zumba cardio dvd which is a blast and a great workout as well. I've lost 7 lbs so far. Started this journey pretty much at the beginning of Feb. Not seeing much on the scale yet but can definitely tell a major difference as far as inches are concerned.

I just bought Zumba for the Wii the other day. I've only done it once at the beginner stage for 20 minutes and let me tell you it was definitely a work out! I didn't know the moves but I was moving around trying my hardest. I was out of breath and sweating... From my experience I would say that it definitely seems like it will work.

I have been doing Zumba for 2 months now and I LOVE it and how it makes me feel! I love seeing my waist line get smaller and I have the DVDs...

This was the first program I have tried to where I have to do it everyday!! I just smile every time I am doing it! I am actually going to take a Zumba Instructor training, to become a certified instructor in April. For people who aren't into the gym and stuff like that (which I'm not) it is perfect. I am going to take more measurements next month so I can see exactly what it has done thus far...but I absolutely LOVE it! Good luck to you girl! It works!

I mix Zumba in with the other cardio work outs I is a lot of fun, plus you learn how to dance in the process :-) As long as you are breaking a good sweat, it's doing its job :-)

I just bought Zumba for Wii yesterday and did an hour last night and 40 minutes today! I have done the live classes before, but the price and lack of a babysitter didn't allow me to stay with it. I am so excited about getting it on Wii! I will let you know how it goes for me!!

Girl, Zumba is amazing. I had stop doing it for a while and i gained all my weight back. But when I did do, i nearly dropped 10 pounds in the first week and a half... that includes a 1200 diet too of course. If you like it, stick to it. I promise you should see results. I also just got the DVDs. I use to do it in class, which is wayyy fun, but unfortunately my job won't let me off in time to do it anymore!

Zumba! is amazing!!! Going to the classes regularly helps because it gives you a feeling of accountablity...they expect to see you! I have a ton of workout DVDs (not Zumba though) and I never do them because there a million other things at home I could be doing other than working out. That is why I make myself go to the class. The areas I see the most improvement on is my waistline....the more you shake the more your abs work. Keeping your core engaged at all times will give you a GREAT burn!!!! Good luck....IT'S YOUR PARTY!!!!
