I got my set from ebay (4 DVDs Beginner - (15 mins - teaches you the moves), Advanced (roughly 45 mins, 7 'dances'), Power (roughly 50 mins, Zumba plus aerobics) and Abs, Hips and Thighs (just over 30 mins, a bunch of individual exercises, not dancing) about 2 years ago and paid $AU30 for the set. I should imagine you'd now be able to pick them up more cheaply - plus, there are many more Zumba instructors with their own DVDs now. My set has the original guy, who speaks Spanish, and a Brazilian who translates into English.
I just got the same set last week and am having a blast it is a totally fun workout and I can tell I am loosing inches already...Would recommend to anyone. I am addicted, I originally tried it at Curves and really enjoyed it but their hours for the classes just were not working for me. Enjoy
I just got the Zumba fitness game for the ps3...they also have it for the wii and the 360 kinect... I love it the dance moves are very similar to the actual classes but i can enjoy my work outs any day of the week at home...its very fun but the steps do take alot of work to learn and get with the rythum but as soon as you get started and have fun it feels like the 20 minutes is over in no time...great cardio....just started this about 2 days ago but i have a really good feeling about it ...
I have done the class and I am not coordinated but they are really fun. Remember you won't be the only one there just starting out. I would recommend going to them, the only reason I bought the DVD's instead is because of the timing of the classes. I live in the country and it was an "extra" trip in. So now I can do it on my schedule. I think Zumba helps with self confidence after you have done it for awhile. Give it a shot!!
How would Zumbas activity be listed under the fitness section? There's several options to choose from under dance. I know it's aerobic, but which one? aerobics (aerobic dacing) general, aerobics (aerobic dacing) step, with 6-8 inch step, aerobics (aerobic dacing) step, with 10-12 inch step, aerobics (aerobic dacing) low impact, or aerobics (aerobic dacing) high impact?
I assumed it was aerobic step with 10-12 in step, but I know it can vary. Any ideas what to record it under? Thanks!

I've been going to Zumba for almost 12 weeks now (2 days a week when I can that is). We have people of all ages, shapes, coordination levels. You names it, they come to the class. We have a blast. But since starting Zumba, watching what I eat, uping my water intake; I've lost 15 lbs. I've also started working out on the elliptical 2 days a week and trying to do about 3-4 miles as well. But, in those 12 weeks, 15 lbs. I love Zumba. I feel great when I am done and I feel like I get a great work out. And I see the results!! I've recently added light weights to the Zumba as well. I have 2 lb hand weights (each 1 weights 2 lbs) and 2.5 lbs ankle weights (again each is 2.5 lbs). I got them at WalMart. I've notice that I sweat alot more and I feel like I am working harder, but I am toning my muscles. Just some ideas.
Hi! I am new here but thought that this would be the place to get some answers. I have been doing Zumba and riding a stationary bike for the past 10 days and have noticed a difference in my upper and lower abs. But I am wondering if this is gonna just build muscle in my legs or will it help slim them down. I am already pretty "solid" and don't need more bulk in my legs. Thanks!
