So I just saw a posting on the bulletin board at the market that there will be Zumba classes at the community center. Twice a week, six bucks a class or pay monthly for a special rate. I've never much liked dance-style workout videos, because I feel so uncoordinated. My hips just aren't hinged that way or something! But I've heard that Zumba is so much fun and this is literally the only chance I could possibly have to join in any kind of group fitness activity. Maybe I should wait until after Baby? But I'm also thinking if there aren't enough participants, the instructor might cancel the class.

Well, I thought I would give the instructor a call first and let her know I'm pregnant and ask if she is comfortable with me joining in. I'm thinking we have a couple members here who have done Zumba and might be able to tell me whether it's ridiculous for me to try it now.

Funny I was just talking to dh about maybe taking a zumba class some dame. But then I thought about it, I don't like classes or people, or doing things in groups, and I don't like dancing. But, I really think I might like this if I had a friend who went with me. My social anxiety interferes with me doing things.

I think it sounds like a good idea. Just try it and see if you like it.

I've also been going back and forth about trying zumba (but via dvd as there aren't any instructors out here close). Not sure what to suggest about trying it when you're pregnant. One of the ladies on my scrapbooking board is a zumba instructor. I could ask her for you if you would like me to.
