    Has anyone ever tried this workout class? I am very uncoordinated but thinking of trying the class at my gym tonight

    It was fun but I have ZERO dancing talent and very uncoordinated! I only went to a few classes. Good Work out though!

    I love Zumba. I don't get to the classes as often as I'd like because of the times they're offered at my gym, but I have all 3 DVD sets so I try to do them at home, too. I've read in several places that you can burn 500-800 calories in an hour of Zumba!

    Well I went it was pretty good. I stayed in the back. I need more of a workout though, but I think it could have been the instructor.

    The most recent DVD set has a variety of workouts, including sculpt and tone (which does the Zumba moves w/ toning sticks, or light weights, so you get that little extra) and ab workouts. I try to do my group power class 2x a week at least and then either hit the cardio or Zumba class on the other days in order to get both the weights and cardio combo.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! I did it for a year and had so much fun. I was in great shape. I hope next year I will be able to go back to it-- now that I have finished my first year.
