Anyone ever taken a class? Is it really as hard as it looks?

It looks like fun but I'm not good AT ALL at dancing plus I'm out of shape so I don't want to look like an idiot and not be able to do the stuff. I know if I go to several classes I'll eventually start learning the dance moves (they do the same dances every week) but I'm nervous that I'll be the only new one in there and everyone will be laughing at me lol.

I am a zumba addict!!! Pre pregnancy I used to do it 2-3 times a week. It's a fun and great workout. It'll take a couple of classes to learn the routines but in my experience no one will laugh at you for being the new person. I'm hoping to get the ok on thursday to start exercising again and start my class on monday!

I love Zumba. I am actually going tonight. Its not hard after you go to a few classes. It is really repetitive, usually in counts of 4 and also really depends on the instructor. I like the toning classes the best.

One of the employees at the gym suggested if I was feeling nervous I could go workout during a class so that I can watch them to see if I would like to join. I might do that tomorrow and if I decide to, join in next Wednesday.

Zumba is awesome! Definitely takes a few classes but you'll work up a sweat. I have it on Wii but it was always awkward because we have carpet.

I've been wanting to try Zumba too. They just started a class at my work gym, but im super nervous because then ill be dancing in front of coworkers. I have an image of how I look when dancing, but in reality I probably look far different than the sexy, graceful dancer I think I am! I am going to have to find someone else who has never done it before to go with me! Let me know how you like it it!

Just focus on the fact that you may look goofy, but everybody else looks goofy too! I always tried to get my step daughter to go with me but she was always embarrassed that she'd look dumb and that people would be looking at her. I always told her that in a class of 50 people what makes her think people would pick her out to laugh at?

I took a Zumba class at the dare of one of my friends a couple of years ago (she dared me to try that, I told her I would if she did spin with me). I am HORRIBLY uncoordinated, and found it challenging to get the moves, but honestly, nobody cared one single bit, and I had a ball. I never did get it right, but it was a heckuva workout, and if I would have stuck with it, I would have figured out the moves and loved it!

I've been trying to get ahold of my friend to go with me. Figured it might make me feel less nervous to have someone go with me but I can't get ahold of her. She works nights so she's pretty much non existent anymore :/

Doesn't look like I'll get down there to workout today and watch the class. My wisdom teeth are coming in and it's making ALL of my teeth hurt Thank goodness I am getting them out next Wednesday.

Totally off topic but I hate wisdom teeth :/ 3 out of 4 of mine came in over the last 2 yrs and they are driving me crazy lately... but I hate the dentist and dont wanna get them pulled.

Now on topic lol I wish I was part of a gym so I could take Zumba! I love to dance and it has always looked like so much fun Let us know how you like it

Omg I know! Only one of mine is through the skin so I have to go to an oral surgeon to get them cut out I'm really nervous because I have a super small mouth so I'm afraid they'll break my jaw or something tryin to get them out! But I'm ready to get them out, about a month ago they started hurting soo bad that I was crying and I didn't even cry when I was in labor, so that's how bad it hurt!
