I went to a Zumba class at the gym tonight. I bought the DVDs over a year ago and they sat by the TV untouched. I took them out of the box when I first got them and made a grand plan to workout with them... didn't happen.

I was a little nervous about the very first class because I am uncoordinated and not graceful at all. I dance like a white guy! The instructor was really perky and really knew what she was doing. There were some parts that I didn't have trouble with and some parts that I kept watching over and over and still didn't understand what I was supposed to do with my hips, arms, and legs. I finished the entire class doing the best I could. It was fun and time flew by! I liked how fast the class went the best. I still haven't made up my mind if I liked Zumba, and if I liked it enough to go back. The body pump class before looked interesting as well.

I stayed away from classes at the gym because I was sure everybody would watch and judge me but most people are just too focused on themselves to worry about me. Once I figured that out its like a whole new world just opened up!

    That's the great thing about Zumba - it's a party. My first class I didn't do any of the arm movements. I just focused on the foot movement and worked up from there. I've been going for about 2 months now and I am hooked. I keep trying to find ways to change my schedule so I can do more

    Way to try something new and give yourself a challenge!

    I've wondered what the Zumba classes were like. You are brave! And I have seen your moves. More like a white guy with a few beers in him to loosen him up emoticon
