  • Zumba is a lot of fun. It's pretty much a dancing workout. I'm not sure if it's safe for pregnant women. If your in your 1st trimester you should be fine...just keep yourself hydrated. When you get a bigger belly it may be hard to do it. If you want to get a better idea of what it is go to youtube.com and search for zumba. There are all kinds of videos. =) Have fun!

  • I'm pregnant and I do it. Just can't do it as activly as the rest. I just pace myself and take it slow. I rrally love it and it helps me to feel sexy even though I'm getting bigger.

  • Definitely not safe for a pregnant woman. Also avoid yoga. No super sweaty exercise at all.

    Its a latin dance form used for cardio and workouts. If interested,there is a Zumba class mixed in with Curves circuit training at Curves. Its a little less stressful doing it that way.
